I would keep looking. I found lots of places I loved during our venue search that we simply could not afford.  Just realize that $12000 is not where it ends, there is so much more, photographer, dj, dress, shoes, accessories, flowers, honeymoon, rings….. I bet if you keep looking you can find the perfect place that fits whatever your budget as well, we did!

Hmm…personally, I passed up my dream venue because of costs. Have you talked to your parents about how much they want to spend? Since it seems like that’s their portion of the overall bill, I would definitely talk to them before you decide anything.

you need to figure out your budget. nail down the dollar amount your parents will contribute, then decide how much you and fi can afford to spend.

have you considered having a daytime or sunday wedding? the minimum is probably lower.

@Ctinaditty: Awww :(. I promise, it’ll get better! I only occasionally think about Laurel Hall (my top choice) now, and when I do, I realize that I wouldn’t have been able to afford all of the other cool stuff that I’ll have at my venue now. My guests would have been in a cool old mansion, but they would have been eating cheese crackers and sitting , lol. Once you find another great venue, you’ll feel better.

I live in missouri. Ya, that place was on my dream list…… until i found out the price. There are some really amazing places in kansas city that i would have loved to have if it werent so far from where i live. But Kansas city is pretty close to lees summit. Have you looked into venues there?

There is a place in kc that will let you use the roof. I flipped when i saw it. I wanted to have the wedding there so bad, but from springfield to kc is a few hours and FIs mom threw a fit. I cant remeber the name of it 🙁 Hmm…. but places that i loved would be The Sawyer room, club 1000, the loretto, the villa, the uptown theatre, and the vox theatre all in KC. Rhapsody in Independance. It took me 3 years to find a venue i liked enough to spend money on. lol. So i know of pretty much every place in the southwest missouri area, and in a lot of other areas of missouri and arkasas too. how close to lees summit are you wanting to stay?
