I have started to do some research into planning a wedding for Fall of 2009. Thanks for all the great posts that I have come across so far.
I am Indian and my fiance is Chinese and we are planning to have an Indian ceremony as well as an American one. Do you ladies have any ideas/suggestions about venues in the bay area that you recommend.
We are also planning on having Indian, Chinese and American/Italian food for the reception so a place that would allow us to cater food would be preferable. Any help/suggestion/insights you can offer is appreciated

I am in the same place, and I found several good ideas for venues on Yelp. There is one "thread" where lots of people list ideas – indoor, outdoor, botanical garden, etc.
Another really comprehensive place to go is herecomestheguide.com – that has descriptions and info about most of the more popular wedding venues.
Enjoy your planning!

Thanks for the reply! I will definitely check out yelp. I have started looking at herecomestheguide but most places it lists say no outside catering allowed. I guess I will just have to call them individually and see if they are affiliated with any indian restaurant etc.
Thanks again and keep in touch. Will let you know if I come across something good.

I got married at the Fairmont Hotel in San Jose, and they have an Asian Menu available, and they also allow for outside Indian food catering. It may be worth it to check it out.
