There is a park in Kokomo, about an hour away from you, that is pretty. It’s called Highland Park. It has a creek that runs through it, a covered bridge, and lots of trees. There is even an outdoor stage with seating already there to hold the ceremony. There is a small building on site if you want to have something indoors. Reserving space is likely pretty cheap if not free. Hope this is a help. If I think of anything else I’ll let you know, but that was the first thing I could think of.

I was thinking last night there is also this place called Adam’s Mill. It has an old mill, barns, a covered bridge, and a bunch of other stuff. It is a little closer to Lafayette. I believe its near a town called Flora which is about a half an hour away from Lafayette.

You may want to look into Centinnel Park. I believe it’s in Munster Indiana.

I’m up in Fort Wayne and the one thing that this city knows how to do is parks. There is a beautiful one, Lakeside, which is picture perfect for weddings. LOTS of people get pictures taken there, so it’s something to consider.

 

Would Purdue have some nice spots? Maybe on a grassy area there? They may be able to get you a meeting space for cheap since you are a student (granted you are a student at Purdue.)

 

I would even say to look in Indianapolis as well.

I lived in West Lafayette IN before I went to college so here are my suggestions.  Anyway, I hope these suggestions help.

The Loeb House Inn is small but has a nice outdoor area.

The Commandant’s Home is a B&B that does weddings.  It is beautiful!  http://www.commhomeb-b.com/index.htm

Weddings at Duncan Hall are always very pretty.  This is right downtown.

If you were thinking about a small park wedding, I would suggest Happy Hollow Park.  It is really pretty and has nice picnic tables and has enough space to set up activities for your guests.

Have you looked into Columbian park? There is a little pavillion area that is surrounded by a lake and it already has concrete benches for seating so you wouldnt even have to get chairs. I dont know if they rent it out for weddings but I am sure they do. I would check it out. However, that park seems to be busy in the summer. I dont know how it is in October.
