Help! I have two amazing venues I can’t decide between. We’ll be having a Sunday wedding, so most guests will be staying Sunday-Monday, and the ones at the rehearsal dinner /out of town guests will likely be there Saturday-Monday. Both have places for guests to stay the entire weekend. Both have lovely outdoor ceremony spaces
Gorgeous reception space (open, tons of windows)
everyone can stay on site if they want
Lots to do on site
Loud ac in summer
Haven’t seen rain plan ceremony space
Can’t save on alcohol expenses by buying wholesale
Amazing staff-made us feel like we wouldn’t be bothered by anything going wrong because they have backup plans up the wazoo lol
Not as pretty interior (was recently repainted white, but still isn’t very “open” feeling)
Not everyone can stay on site
Not much for guests to do day of
Any thoughts? Anyone had their ceremony at one location and can sway us?

How much more expensive? I think the first picture is absolutely gorgeous and I definitely prefer it over the second, but if it’s way way way more expensive, it might not be worth it.

Everyone can stay on site and much to do would make a huge difference for me, especially if people are staying over to Monday. What is the cost difference?

I actually like the second space better. I don’t always like a huge open space. Smaller spaces feel more intimate.

I think the first space is much prettier, and the pros are much better than the pros of the second place. Is it a significant cost difference? Can you trim costs somewhere else in the budget to make it work?
one of my all time favorite weddings I attended had all the guests stay onsite together. Everyone really bonded at the prewedding events, and it gave the couple ample time to spend with their guests.

I personally prefer the looks of the second space, however the first has a lot of pros. Is it a huge difference pricewise?

I like the first one. It will be nice to have everyone in one place no one will feel left out staying at a separate hotel. I’m sure they have some sort of backup plan worse case you could get married where your having your reception

I like the look of both spaces. I do think that the first space would need much less in terms of decor. So that might be something to keep in mind with costs. I don’t think you would have to add much to it at all. I’d say if it’s not a crazy price difference, then go with the one you love.
