    I picked the Holiday Inn – go for the views!

    A friend of mine recently went to a wedding at an aquarium (so not the same as a zoo, but close) and said it smelled. She also felt weird eating fish surrounded by fish.

    The zoo would be the most memorable location for you and your guests, I think!

    The zoo is defintely the most different. If you want a traditional wedding then it might not be the right thing. The views from the holiday inn do look beautiful and the room in the restaurant is lovely too. 

    I think only you guys can know what’s right for the type of day you want.

    Hotels are always great cuz you can drink drink drink and not have to worry about driving, but $20 parking is a bit much… I wouldn’t be a happy guest if I had to pay for parking. (that’s one of the bigest reasons we didn’t go for one of our top options) and that’s a lot of money out of your pocket if you opt to pay for your guests.


    The resturant and zoo have 2 compleately different feels, but both seem to have a whole lot of pros. It depends on what is important to you as a bride. If having wonderfully unique photos is a high priority, dalphins are certainly going to satisfy your photography desires. If excellent food and elegant look is more your fancy, well, then the resturant would win. Know what I mean?


    What do you want the most?


    I was blessed in that the venue we picked had everything we wanted and nothing else came close. Don’t settle if you can help it. If you want great food, an awesome view, and unique photos, find a plave that has it all. 🙂

    The zoo will stand out for your guests, most of them will probably never have been to a reception at a zoo. And that dolphin is too adorable!
