Oh no!! Don’t give up! Maybe just take a break for awhile. It took us 6 months to find a venue and we looked EVERYWHERE. I felt just like you did, I promise. I finally kinda threw my hands up and took a break and someone mentioned a place and well.. it became my venue!!! Seriously, maybe just take a small break from it. It can be overwhelming, which makes the process even harder and more stressful. Good luck!!

It is very rare the PERFECT venue is out there. Maybe you and your FH should sit down together and make a list of things that are important to you for the venue and rank them and talk about each venue you’ve seen and if see what ones have the top priorities and take it with you to any other venues you see. Good luck!

Oh gosh, I know the frustration.  We didn’t look at as many venues but we went to a lot.  And each one had pro’s and con’s, none of them struck us as PERFECT.  It was really difficult to make the decision.  We tossed and turned at night, I literally made a pro’s and con’s list of them and carried them with me everywhere, I’d ask everyone I knew to help, I even asked strangers.  In the end, we just kinda said “screw it, we have to get married somewhere”.  You may just get to that point too.  But being convenient for our guests did rank number one.  Good luck!

take a look at The Madison Restaurant in Long Beach California, its open for 10/10/10 and is gorgeous.  Have no idea where you live, but this is a great location and is open as we had to change our plans.

I agree- make a list of the things that you are looking for, then rank them in order of importance. For us, the food is the most important aspect (FI is a chef)…but for you, maybe it’s location. Anyway, I think that you probably can’t find every single thing, but maybe if you really think it out on paper, that will help.

It is frustrating, I agree!
