I think those changes will make it into a beautiful venue!

I think you just can’t see it now, but the second video looks nice. I hate the vines and paintings, but since they are redoing the room I think it will be great ๐Ÿ™‚

@MrsCreeToBe:  I’ve been there!!!!! Good gracious, OP, you have nothing to worry about. It is not tacky at all. Elegant, streamlined and grand were the words that came to mind for me in viewing the original video you posted, and based on my memories of being there. I have no idea how the word “factory” would be associated whatsoever, so don’t get stuck on that word as its reference. Their plans for the redo simply brighten what is already gorgeous about the room. Stick to it and congratulate yourselves on a great find of a venue.

EDIT: If you want to keep it more traditional and warm, stick to a warm color scheme and gentle decor.

I think it looks nice. And you’ve already booked it. And he loves it. You have tons of ways to put your own spin on things so don’t stress about this. Nobody will think it looks bad. Seriously.

OMG no- it is beautiful!!  I love the skylight and I think the whole (renovated) place looks so elegant.  You will have a beautiful wedding there!!  Uplighting would look great there too if you like that.

@MrsCreeToBe:  I think its lovely actually, really light and airy and has an elegant vibe

Its so easy to start second guessing decisions – i am the WORST for this, and my fi has no patience with it.  I do think men like to make decisions and move on, most arent big on second guessing

but as a complete stranger with no vested interest in telling you anything – i dont htink its tacky at all. promise! i like the floors and general look. I think with colours you can give it a warmer look

I think your venue is absolutely gorgeous, even the way it is now. It will probably look more “modern” once the changes are made, but honestly, where I live, that place would probably go over as one of the nicest/classiest locations you could imagine.

If you are still worried about decor, just make extra effort to include your own personal touches. Go crazy with table runners, chair covers, candles, lighting, paper lanterns, personalized napkins, etc. 

I can’t imagine anyone finding anything wrong with that venue at all.

i think by just removing the vines it will take years off of the venue.  it really isn’t nearly as bad as i thought it would be.  i think the potential is huge.  it’s quite lovely actually.

@MrsCreeToBe:  I’ve been to Jericho Terrace quite a few times and I’ve always had a great time there. I think it’s a beautiful place and definitely not too gaudy like a lot of Long Island venues tend to be. I think when they scale back on the Ivy and you get your decorations in there it will be beautiful. More importantly, I hear they’re great to work with and very accommodating. They’ve definitely been accommodating to the wedding guests in my experience ๐Ÿ™‚

I think both spaces are lovely.  It’s easy to have regret once you have a lot of time to think about things and time to pick apart every little thing you see as a potential flaw, which seems the case here since you booked quite early.  In the big picture, I think this will be beautiful.  Once you get decorations, and delicious food, and a beautiful cake and lively music and all the love of your friends and family in there, you won’t even notice the minute things that you once didn’t like!
