If you are not able to secure a Plan B for bad weather, I’d have it indoors.

If you plan it outside and there’s a thunderstorm or its 100 degrees – what would you do?

I’d keep looking at indoor venues.  Ours has plenty of character.  They are out there.

Where is your location?  What is the weather generally like in August?

I’d feel a lot more comfortable with an indoor venue. Weather is unpredictable, and, personally, I wouldn’t be willing to chance it. I would keep looking for an indoor venue with character, but, if you can’t find one, I’m sure you’ll be able to make it lovely with decorations. Also, I know I would appreciate you selecting an indoor venue if I were a guest. I noticed your date is in August, and I do everything possible to avoid the outdoors for extended period of time during the hot summer months. I’m sure I’m not the only one.

August is really tough, so I agree that unless you can find a great Plan B, I’d go with the indoor options. But it might be helpful to post your location – it’s possible that someone on here knows of the ideal venue (indoor with outdoor patio, + character, holds 200+) near you.

You should try and meet in the middle.  If your parents want it outdoors 9and are footing the bill) and you fi wants it inside, maybe you could find a venue that is a really decorated tent (not your typical tent).  That would satisfy both plus you have the security in case of bad weather.

Those venues are beautiful – I see why you like them!  I can see positives both ways!  If you go for an outdoor venue, it’ll be beautiful and you can plan for bad weather using tents.  Sometimes rental companies will allow a rainy backup plan for rentals depending on availability.  I grew up in Georgia, and usually although it’s warm, it doesn’t rain that much.  If it does rain, it’s quick, heavy spurts.  On the other hand, although the conference rooms might not look like much, it’s amazing how draping and lighting transforms a space.  I’m not sure if you’re looking just close to Greensboro, but there are some beautiful sites throughout Georgia that have indoor and outdoor options in the same property.  

Chateau Elan is a winery that hosts gorgeous weddings.  They have indoor, outdoor, modern, and rustic options:

There are a couple other wineries out there too that you could look at around GA.  Also, how about estates?  Again, I’m not sure what locations you’re looking into, but after a quick google search, Little Gardens looks beautiful with indoor and outdoor options also.  If you look around at alternatives, I’m sure you can find what you’re looking for!
