    I would choose better food, because that’s really what people remember from your wedding.

    What is it about their menu that sucks, is it the selection or the quality?  If it’s selection I would still go with the more scenic location, but if the quality of their food is bad I would go with the restaurant.  I don’t think anyone will care if their only option was the chicken dinner, but they will definitely care if they got food poisoning on the night of your wedding.

    I’d go with better food, definitely. I’m sure you’ll be able to find a ceremony location that suits you, even if it doesn’t have the same beautiful view. I’d rather have delicious seared tuna than look at a waterfront as a guest 🙂

    Better food for sure.

    One thing I heard from watching all those TV wedding shows is …”Your guests will remember your wedding for 2 things, the brides dress and the food!!!”

    I agree with @abbie017:.  To me, the ceremony is the most important part of the wedding, and I would make sure that you’re not in any way slighting the ceremony itself. However, I would choose a reception venue with fabulous food over one that would offer a lovely view but below average food any day.

    Food is tops for me. I will always remember the food from an event.  A venue no matter how “great” it is, once you walked around its like OK thats great…but i’m still stalking the food after that.

    I would choose food.

    Plus, a location closest to where you live and where your friends/family lives is pretty important too. So if the city location is closer to them, that’s a bonus too.

    Better food. You can always ask if the chapel can be decorated.
