Okay bees. Fiance and I have visited about half a dozen venues and we’ve been able to nix a few of the ones we saw, but are stuck on the remaining 3. We still have a few more places to go but it would be really helpful for you to help us narrow down what we already have.
We’re going for a classy vibe for about 50 people.
First we have Venue 1
A small banquet room inside of a restaurant
Next we have Venue 2
A bigger banquet hall inside a local hotel, includes gazebo for ceremony. Don’t mind the snow, we’re aiming for summer.
(yes that’s actually a basketball court next to the gazebo)
Lastly we have Venue 3
A banquet hall in a local country club
These will be much prettier in the time of year we want.
Thanks SO MUCH for making it this far lol
Also, if these pictures are too big, can someone tell me so I can go back and make them smaller? I hesitated because some people like bigger pictures for more detail but if they are too cumbersome I’m happy to shrink them. Thanks!

I like the country club the best. The first one seemed way too dark and the second was only because of the basket ball court in the background.

Definitely number 3! The room looks classy already, and is enough fo a blank slate to support any decor. The other venues have a lot of “look” to them already, and the look they have isn’t intimate or classy, in my opinion.

#3 is my favourite. I think it looks alot classier

I voted for the 3rd venue because there is a nice outdoor space with a gazebo and a really cool looking bar area.

Weird question but… these aren’t in CT are they? #2 looked like Cornucopia Banquet in Torrington, so I had to ask.
I like #3 personally. The bones are good, the grounds will be pretty, and, it’s dumb, but I like the chairs! I personally hate chair covers.

I didn’t like the first venue, but had a hard time deciding between the last two options. I finally settled on the last one, mostly because the grounds seem to be so nice.

Definitely number 3! The first one seems very dark and the carpet inside venue 2 made me dizzy just looking at the picture.

@BeachBride2014: HA! They totally are CT but not where you said. 😛 Good guess! PS- I really liked the chairs too! Very unique.

number 3. its a very nice simple room that you can do alot with to make it your own. I feel like the first and second one would have too much competing with any decoration you might want, also, the third one looks the brightest and I like that. plus the bar is kind of cool 🙂

Order of my preference – just based on the photos…

I voted for the country club, #3 – It is the classiest.
#1 – I don’t like that it looks really dark and has low ceilings.
#2 – I don’t like the carpeting at all! It looks like a playroom or something.

@Omgbunnies: Maybe I am just recognizing the dreary CT weather in the pictures!

I vote #3 for the same reasons everyone else pointed out. The grounds look lovely, and the room itself seems class yet comfortable.
The ONLY thing that disqualifies #2 is the basketball court. Otherwise I like this better than #3 because of all the light, the cool decor, and the romantic gazebo. 🙂
