- Wedding: July 2012 - Baltimore Museum of Industry
We looked at 4, and had previously visited a few others (museums, & arts center). I had a list of close to 20 other possible venues, but we’re having a 6-month engagement, so we needed to make a decision asap.
Do you have an tentative guest list yet? That can make a big difference in which venue you select. Our venue’s a museum, and was one of the first ones we suggested to each other. W

We looked at 2.5. One was in the destination that we thought we were going to use until we changed our minds, and the other was the one that we eventually signed with and will have our wedding at. I say 2.5 because his dad/stepmom was getting sick of waiting for us to choose a wedding date, so they took us to dinner at a country club that does weddings and next thing I know I”m going home with a ton of information in my hands. So…2 that we wanted to look at, one that we were forced to!

We knew what venue we wanted before we went looking, we just needed to figure how much it was going to cost. If it had turned out absurd, then we probably would have had to keep searching, but the venue’s prices were good so it was a go!

Online, and by phone, I asked for information at about 40 places.
In person, I saw a total of 3 venues. One urban-area historic plantation with gardens, the second being a country ranch house, with a gazebo ceremony site and a tent reception. The last venue and my choice was a vineyard in the country with an indoor reception area, and a beautiful tree ceremony location. 🙂
