Don’t get down about it!  You still have plenty of time.  I am going through much the same thing as you – except that I am getting married in March (eep!).   Based on staff helpfulness and budget, I have found one place that is perfect —- but I am not excited about the venue at all.  Some other places (hotels) have been beautiful but they won’t let me bring in my own alcohol.  I really want to have a hosted bar but can’t afford to do it unless I can bring my own booze.  I am very close to picking the place I am not too excited about becuase the most important thing is that we are surrounded by our friends and family.  At the end of the day, I don’t think the venue will matter too much.

That said – good luck in your search!  You will make the place you choose perfect for you!

Keep your chin up and keep looking.  I went through venue after venue after venue trying to find something that worked.  All the hard work paid off in the end, as I found my dream venue, within my budget, and the vendors have been a DREAM to work with!

Good luck!

Ahh, venue searching.  My 100% LEAST favorite task to date. And stressful! 

Mine was between two places and it’s kind of similar to your situation.  One place was amazing aesthetically but my contact there was less than desirable.  The other place, family catering business, so they are just divine to work with.  Nice venue but the ballroom isn’t my favorite.  We went with them and now I’m just going to decorate the hell out of the that room. 

Good luck with your decision.  Personally, I think it’s better to have a caterer who is easy and friendly to work with.  Most people always comment on the food.  And I would rather have the caterer in my corner on my day.
