1) Location. It had to be within 1 hour of a major international airport. 

2) Price/Value. 

3) Appearance. I wanted something that would look good (by my taste) with minimal decorations. This also means fitting my style. I am not into the rustic theme at all, and preferred hotel ballrooms or country clubs. 

4) I wasn’t interested in paying much for a flat venue fee. 

5) I wanted a venue that came with a day of coordinator.

kinneybride :  this sounds great!  When I said rentals, I mainly meant tables and chairs. The vendors I would want my own say in is catering, photography, and videography, and officiant. The rest I’m sure I’d be fine with using a vendors list but those would be deal breakers for me if I couldn’t choose. It most definitely sounds like you are on the right track!

kinneybride :  I second the nice indoor bathrooms and A/C- fans option!

In addition to what has already been said:

– some decorated space/possiblity to decorate for indoor ceremony.

– flooring/dancing stage: I couldn’t tell you what is required but I do notice a bad floor at weddings that is slippery for dancing

– dedicated parking space that does not become muddy in case of rain

– cheaper options on weekdays (outside of holidays)

– a comprehensive manual of what you can do/cannot do in terms of decorations: Are there nails on the walls? can you hang lanterns? etc.

– room for coats and bags
