  • Wedding: June 2009

I know someone who had their reception at the polish heritage center. However, they also had like 400 guests.

Considering how fickle spring is around here (i had the same woes about a june 20 wedding…it POURED the weekend of my wedding and the sun came out about 4 hours before the ceremony so we could do outdoor instead of indoor), I’d spring for the extra $400. Also, I don’t like how a lot of venues in St Lousi put people in separate areas. Our venue was like that, too, and would only hold 130 in the main dining room, then bump to the “wine garden” which was completely separate. I think i’ts nice to keep everyone in one area, otherwise it’s just strange, like someone got shafted, and it’s too easy to disconnect them from the wedding.

I’d scrounge together the $400 to keep people together AND be safe. Spring is just weird around here!

The $400 dollars could definitely be worth it, although I completely see your point about it feeling to big with your smaller guest list.  The Edge of Webster is actually a fantastic venue, and although you have to purchase alcohol from them, it’s a good size for your guest list.

One thing to keep in mind with the Lehman House, is if you are inviting a total of 150, not all 150 will show up. It will probably be between 120 and 130 – so it could work out. Now, if you’re inviting like 200, that’s another story.

Hopefully between ejs4y8 and me (and other posters), this will help!
