No way!  I’m sure that is probably meant for prisoners or something.  Who in their right mind would have a reception there?

Oh wow, you just can’t do that there.  There is a psych hospital near me that you can rent their banquet room for weddings and stuff.  I can’t imagine who would do that…let along prison grounds.  I wouldn’t care how nice it was.

Erm, I would – but probably for irony’s sake … I just would find some kind of hillarity in it …

However, Mattel I can see your point in this … I would put my foot down on this one – don’t let anyone make you have something about your wedding that you absolutely do not want.

I live in Ohio and I was completely shocked when I found out that the Ohio State Reformatory had a banquet hall – that was currently used today!  I didn’t like the movie Shawshank Redemption that was filmed there, so umm I would never dream of using that facility.  It completely freaked me out though knowing that something like that exists.

 

Good luck with Future Mother-In-Law – I guess that would be one decision that I would be very insistent about not letting her make!!

Eeek. I can’t believe they even have a banquet hall on the prison grounds. This would be a definite no for me!

okay, this was one of the funniest headlines I have seen. NO! Clearly you cannot have it there (though I do agree with the poster that maybe you should, just for a strange irony.) Can you explain to us why your Future Mother-In-Law wants to have it there? Is she the warden?

When I took 19th century French lit in college, sometimes the novels’ plots would take surprisingly turns like this and it always made me laugh. The symbolism is just too much.

I’m with alishaneva, I think it’s pretty funny. But I’m pretty weird and don’t blame anybody else for not liking it! Tell her NO!
