My family once had a reunion in a fire hall! It was fine with some decorations, and the food was GREAT!

That really doesn’t look bad at all, and you could definitely make it look even better with professional lighting and maybe some draping.

I think that’s lovely.. and the ceiling are short enough where you won’t need to decorate them.. or if you want to, they are easily decorated!

I wouldn’t mind going to a wedding like this at all.

But I could be biased, we’re looking at having our wedding in a pole barn.. lol

I am also having my wedding at a fire hall and it’s completely DIY. I am decorating it my way – which I love. It gives you freedom to really make it your own and create the ambiance you want. 


I understand your anxiety, though, since you sound like you were planning on having something fancy at a country club but now feel like you have to settle for a fire hall. Honestly, it’s about the day and what it represents. You don’t need windows or elegant chandeliers or whatever else to make it more special for you or your guests. People will remember the food, entertainment and the look in you and your new husband’s eyes as you slow dance. And you will remember marrying your best friend and that’s all that counts. Everything else is minor detail.

What kind of atmosphere/decor do you want?

i think it looks fantastic. when you said firehall I envisioned what firehalls look like in my area(drab, bingo halls-which there isn’t much else to use until recently), and that looks like a hotel hall compared to my firehalls. I think your wedding will look great there.

I think it will work nicely, the only thing really missing from the pictures IMO is color! Everything is so white. I think if you ditch the chair covers, add uplighting, flowers, maybe some tablecloths in a wedding color, it will lookgreat. Plus the tie-in to your grandpa is pretty neat.

@thefuturemrsD:  just decorate it really well! and it will be perfect. It does not look bad, and since its basically a blank canvas you can do whatever you want with decorations!


just remember the venue isn’t too important, its marrying the love of your life!
