@MrsRedPumps:  I didn’t have venue regret myself but my advice is to just keep planning and give yourself a chance to fall back in love with the place! Probably you are just noticing all these little things because now it’s not just your venue in theory, it’s for real.

If your Fiance loves it I bet it is a great place. On the big day I didn’t really notice too much about our venues (and they were a beautiful church and  beautiful turn of the century ballroom!) I was up in the clouds and you will be too.

None yet.  My bm actually showed me a veue this weekend that would have been perfect had I seen it first (huge outdoor space and gardens and about $100 cheaper).  But even though I haven’t seen this other venue in person, I am still in love with mine.  I did hesitate to book my venue at first because it has no outdoor space, except for the parking lot and then right in front (on the same property) is an apartment building, so no scenic views.  But the inside space is gorgeous and pretty big.  

Keep on planning and try to envision your decorations and guests in the space.  That might help you fall back in love with it.

If it helps, I wouldn’t say I had venue regret, but I did have second guesses. When I was talking with the coordinator I just kept thinking that I needed to do more, MORE MORE things to make it look like more than a barren glass enclosure (I got married in a garden pavilion…but with out the garden part). I ended up just trusting my gut and went ahead with everything and I am so glad I did! It ended up looking amazing!

Venue on my wedding day. Yes I could’ve used more things, but from what I hear every one thought it was beautiful…and if they didn’t think so I at least did.

@MrsRedPumps:  I think you’ll be just fine. A party feels a lot livelier if you have a smaller, nearly-full room compared with a more spacious room that can end up feeling a little dead and empty.

I have venue regret of a different nature. Unbeknownst to Fiance and me, my mom did some scouting of more upscale venues than what we were looking into. She found one that she was really excited about, that was surprisingly affordable, and begged us to have it there. Since she is footing a big chunk of the bill for the reception, we agreed.

We like the venue itself, for the most part. It’s a really nice hotel, a gorgeous location, everyone I’ve talked to about it has raved about their food – I’m confident that it’s going to be a very nice reception. My regret, though, is that by going with this venue we are locked into working with their event coordinator, and I just find her to be really unprofessional. She is flaky, abrupt, a little bit abrasive, impatient, and she comes off as frivolous. We just have incompatible communication styles, I guess, but Fiance and I agreed that if we had met her beforehand, we would have really tried to talk my mom out of her enthusiasm. *sigh*
