    ooh tough choice….the good thing is that you have two awesome options and it’ll be a great wedding no matter which one you go with. i’m all about the alternative venues, but as a non-christian a chapel venue like that was never a possibility. that chapel is realllly cute. and affordable. but that ballroom is gorgeous. i know i’m being so much help right now, huh? i guess i would probably see what the board says about your wedding. it sounds like they will probably make your decision for you (by turning you down).

    I’d go with the chapel personally. I think it’s actually really nice inside and you’re saving a ton of money. The only plus side I can think of that would make me want the boarding school is the fact that you could probably get some awesome photos and it’s more unique.

    Tough choice! Maybe just go with what looks better for your theme (if you have one?)

    I would pick the chapel…it’s gorgeous and you won’t need much additional decoration PLUS you have 400 extra dollars to put toward your reception.

    I’d pick the chapel!  But I must be confused what about a reception?

    Is this just for the ceremony?  Not the reception? 

    In that case I would go the traditional route, save the money, go with the chapel.

    I think the chapel would photograph better, the lighting looks much more amenable to that. Maybe that should be a factor?

    I love the ballroom- but I would feel like it’s more of a reception space- if you had to really think about it- and you’d save a ton of money/heartbreak with the chapel. Not to mention it is very beautiful.

    Iam having my wedding at a similar place to your ballroom.  I loved the idea of getting to come down a grand staircase.  I even picked my dress around it.  If it is your dream to come down the stairs then wait for their decision.  At least try for the dream.

    I like the Ballroom, elegant. You can tell the ballroom meets a dream about walking down the stairs to meet your dad, that would look lovely. Pray for the ballroom.

    I would do the chapel, I would hate to hear if the board approved me or not to use the ball room. The chapel is beautiful too.

    I would do the chapel, too. Especialy since your reception venue is pretty unique.

    While the ballroom is lovely, I really like the chapel.
