I agree with all many previous posters who say that it’s all about making your priorities and allocating money accordingly.

We fell in love with our venue when we found it!  It was the nicest and most expensive location that we found  – but as soon as we toured it, we HAD to have it. It was an old gentlemen’s club…cocktail hour on the first floor “Red Room”, dinner upstairs on 3rd floor in the ballroom, cake cutting in grand foyer with balcony on 2nd floor, dancing on the first floor.  We also got ready at the club with complimentary suites and stayed there that night in the honeymoon suite.   It was PERFECT!!!  With such a gorgeous venue, we did little-to-no “decoration” – it almost would have cheapened it.  

The #1 reason we are SOOO happy that we chose this venue is because the weather was HORRIBLE on our wedding day (read: sleet, snow, wind, rain, etc.)  We had scheduled a limo to take our wedding party around the city to do photos at tons of outdoor locations.  But, we couldn’t go outside ALL DAY! Our gorgeous venue saved the day! I was pretty upset at first,  but at least our venue was GORGEOUS and it made for great pictures.  Just something else to consider 🙂
