    I don’t see anything wrong with a hotel reception and don’t understand why they seem so terrible to some people. As long as you like the space, food, location, and price then I figure it’s a win-win. That being said, I don’t think you should settle for it if your budget allows for something you want more. Much like with other choices, it’s a matter of balancing out your priorities, i.e. awesome but pricey vs. alright but super easy. Good luck 🙂

    I’m fine with hotel receptions, but I don’t love them. That first location is a stunner! The country club is lovely as well. Are any of them easily accessible to the hotels in your city? Do things like catering balance out the cost of the venues? I looked at some hotel venues that were inexpensive but the catering was over $100pp. Non-hotels were more flexible with catering.

    @lauraashley09:  Oh, just saw your comment about the restaurant. That’s what I chose to do after exhausting every venue in the city! It ended up being the cheapest overall because:

    1. no rentals (tables chairs linens utensils etc all included)
    2. barely any setup
    3. decorating is easy as pie

    I say do the restaurant but I’m biased! I’m renting a whole restaurant with no rental fee and the only requirement is to spend at least $4000 on food/drinks. We’ll easily spend $7000, but it’s much cheaper than other options for the type of food and service we wanted.

    Good luck with the choice!
