@jaim1104:  I don’t think it’s a big deal at all! I think of most hotel banquet rooms as being pretty neutral, so you can do whatever you want with the space. Actually, I think a rustic theme would be a really really nice surprise – most people who aren’t recently married/engaged haven’t seen “rustic” weddings before, so I bet your guests will love it and find it really unique. I say go for it!

ETA: Do you have any photos of the room?

I would have to see photos.I have seen some non-rustic venues with rustic decor done to great success, and some where it looked like the rustic element was completely shoehorned in.

One of the things that both my florist and my decorator both said to me that stuck with me was “don’t fight your venue.”

My venue is out at a lodge near the woods and a lake, so I’m ‘going with it’ and incorporating more greenery and curly willow/etc. into my decorations instead of going with a blinged out chandeliers and crystal type theme. 

I agree with PP that said that some hotel banquet rooms are pretty neutral, but I would just be careful. But like EffieT said, it can look really forced and strange if it’s not done well…

What are your other venue options?
