@Ladydazl: I’m pretty sure that some other bees in the hive have had venue regret and have changed, but I’m not sure who right off the top of my head.

I’m curious… have you talked to your Fiance about wanting to make the change? I only ask because you said you liked them all, but he really loved one of them.

@Ladydazl: Well there you go. I think if both of you agree it would make for a better choice and you won’t be out anything that your budget can’t handle, then go for it!

Best of luck! Hope it all works out.

I can totally relate!  We booked a local country club ballroom for our wedding, and have been freaking out ever since because I relized that our guest list is really small…so we’re going to end up with a venue meant to seat about 250 for a group of about 60.  Now I’m panicking on how to take up space so we don’t get lost in the room.  Ultimately, at the end of the day, you need to do what makes you happy and what you can financially afford to do!  I agree…go take a look at the other venue together and see what you both think!

I had major venue regret.  I live out of town, so my mother did the legwork.  When I finally got to visit the place, I realized it had a really weird set up, marginal food and lots of extra charges.  I didn’t end up changing it and kind of wish I had, although everything worked out in the end.

As a guest, I don’t think traveling 10 minutes between locations is a big deal at all, especially if I’ve already traveled thousands of miles.

We originally decided on this

but when the all the paperwork came for us to complete, along with sending the deposit, I got really scared. Because of the cost, we were going to have a marquee, and also the amount of organising involved. It was my dream venue ;(  

Because neither Fiance or I have got a big family I sometimes think I should’ve had a destination wedding but it’s not what I wanted, I wanted a traditional wedding.

I agree – bring the Fiance and see what he thinks.  Also, it depends on the kind of person you are – if you are having venue regrets now, how will that be compounded over the next few months while you are planning?  Usually, once I notice something about a place I don’t like, it is all I can focus on.  So I’d say, as long as your Fiance is in agreement, cut your losses and change venues!

I had venue regret, we paid a deposit for a hall.. it was a church community hall.. it was simle and AFFORDABLE at only $800 for 8 hours. but then we found out if we wanted round tables there would be an additional charge of 200 which wasnt really the deal breaker, untll we attended a xmas event at hall that was wayyyyyyy nicer and didnt need as much decoration as the community hall. Infact the community hall just seemed ulgy to me after I saw the other place that had a built in dance floor, bar and nice foyer.. we switched right away and lost our deposit on the first hall

Can I ask WHY you are thinking about changing?

It just sounds like you are kinda MEH about both anyway? So what is really making you thinking of changing from one to the other?

How far away is the first one compared to the second one for you guests to travel?
