@kmlou: I know with the Botanical Gardens you can add a backup option.

I am having an outoor ceremony and I do have a back up plan. In the words of my very wise wedding planner “those with a back-up plan rarely have to use it. Those without one are usually out of luck.”

Our back up plan is a tent with chandeliers on the garden area. If that isn’t in your budget you could look into indoors locations at the same venue that might be a possible option.

Where is your wedding?

Be careful with the World’s Fair Pavillion during windy months.  I know there are some kind of shutters/doors available, but without them it becomes a sort of wind tunnel.  Still have nightmares of a wedding/reception set up where the glass fish bowls & mirrors were being blown off tables.  Needless to say, we didn’t stick around after the ceremony.

Definitely check the St. Louis Parks website http://www.co.st-louis.mo.us/ParksandRecreation/PicnicsBanquetsWeddings

I always wanted an outside wedding but Fiance does not trust the weather at all, so the Jewel Box was the closest that i was able to get, definetly look into it.

Also, I know the botanical gardens, I believe the Larimore plantaion does, and also most wineries around the STL area have locations inside where a ceremony can be held due to inclement weather. O I forgot also about the Piper palm house, there is an option for either outdoors or indoors, we actually toured this place but ended up going with the jewel box.
