@ohmybears48:  Congrats on your big day!  Perhaps Catalyst Ranch might be flexible, at the very least it’s worth discussing with them.  Another venue you might want to consider if you haven’t already is Architectural Artifacts.  It’s certainly unique, but affordable and has minimal restrictions.  http://architecturalartifacts.com/atriumevents/

@ohmybears48:  Oh fun!  I loved that part!  Not sure if you’ve looked at Loft on Lake or Venue One as options – they’re raw spaces, but that leaves so many possibilities.

@ohmybears48:  Oh wow, had no clue they were over 7k!  I know you commented on Ravenswood Event Center in a previous thread, but have you seen their industrial ballroom space?  It’s way under the 7k mark and would definitely fit your guests.  They have been absolutely amazing to work with, I adore Aly and Andy.

I would check with Lauren at the Catalyst about the flexibility of the kid number.  We are having our wedding there in October and, granted we’re only expecting 5-6 kids, we weren’t aware of a kid policy.  They seem extremely flexible though.

Best of luck!

I have been looking at venues at least online for a few weeks before I got engaged, and I can’t think of colorful venues off the top of my head. What might be a good idea is to pick whatever layout and location that fits your budget and order those colored lights. I have seen them in a lot of pictures and it looks like it really adds to the overall theme of the night.

@ohmybears48: I would love to see your list! I’m just wading into the planning process and quickly getting sad because everything is so expensive.

 

Thanks!
