I think the new one you found resembles a barn.. it has that very rustic feel that you’re going for, so I think it would totally be okay.

Realistcally, you won’t find a barn exactly like your inspiration pictures, but the new building you found is pretty close.

Make sure you discuss with them about decorating though – when we were looking for a rustic venue, many of them had alot of rules for decor.

@soontobehisbride:  I really like the non-barn venue, and the last expensive venue. I would personally go for one of those, and not one that doesn’t hold enough people…needing to spill over into a tent kind of defeats the purpose IMO. I also am having a barn wedding, but our barn with no rentals, kitchen, or bathroom was over $5000…if that makes you feel better. I used to live in MN, but am now in NY, so I understand they’re totally different markets, but I’d be thrilled for a $2500. If you have a lot of guests coming from out of town, and you really like the first venue, I would go for it. It has enough barn feel that I think your style will come across.

@soontobehisbride:  Seriously, and that includes nothing, just the space itself. The bathroom trailer alone is $1000, and that’s not even top of the line, super fancy pants. Welcome to NY lol. Good luck with your decision!

@soontobehisbride:  It’s a bit of going with your heart but listen to your head too. My dream was a marquee but a combination of cost and not so great British weather so I listened to my head and went for a converted barn we had seen and it turned out great.

I think the cheaper venue is gorgeous and has a very similar look inside as the other pictures you posted. I say go for that!
