    I voted for #2 because…

    Most people wont go out after, and the few that do wont mind traveling to the night life area. 

    The alcohol being more is a bummer, but not terrible– the use of their furniture is great though, rental chairs are just never comfortable, and this will give your entire event a more “plush” feel. 

    If the guest list is only 70, you could just do it all in the larger room and use the couches to divide the space, or just leave them spread out– people rarely complain about having too much space. 🙂

    Venue One is nice… I like the brick walls, and it being an intimate space.  But as you say, if you go beyond 70 people it is going to feel tight… especially given that you are multi-purposing the rooms.

    Venue Two is lovely… maybe not as cozy as Venue One, but the seating is more highend and for me that would count for something (less decor to have to worry about).  The space is gorgeous… and BONUS that you don’t have to flip.

    Personally, I’d rather go to a Wedding where there was more space than not enough… so I would vote for Venue Two.

    Also think that Venue Two gives you more options when it comes to photography… and that is nice.  Lovin the mixture of decor, textures etc.  And I take it it is a Brewery or Vineyard… so that adds a nice feature as well.

    Hope this helps,

    I vote venue 2. Its better to have too much space than not enough. Plus you won’t have to be worrying about the flip on your wedding day! The couches look super comfy and conducive to conversations for those who aren’t big dancers, and the whole place (bar, table chairs, lighting) looks spiffy/classy.

    Venue 2.  It sounds like 1 will be too cramped with your guests, and it seems like flipping the room will be chaotic.  Where will your guests go while the room is flipped?

    I voted for Venue 2. Parking downtown is often a nightmare, and there’s no guarantee there will be enough spaces. You don’t want your guests having to pay to park and then walk long distances in their fancy shoes.

    Besides, that first shot of Venue 1 looks awfully cramped.
