As a guest, I don’t really care what the venue looks like on the outside. If it’s gorgeous on the inside, go for it!

I think the venue is fabulous! And like you said, speakeasys are supposed to be tucked away in the middle of nowhere,so it totally works.

We have the same dilemma. Our venue is perfect, it’s a dinner theatre, which is perfect for our 1940’s old Hollywood wedding, but it’s in an industrial part of town which isnt the prettiest. However it is within walking distance of the hotels, which is a bonus. The way I figure, most guests will be inside all night and won’t notice. 

I think we are going to have a pretty backdrop setout outside for picture, so that’ll pretty it up soMe! Lol

I totally get where you’re coming from- this is the type of thing I would get worried about.

However, as you said, speakeasys were in oddball places, and, let’s be honest, your guests are at most going to make one comment about the odd surroundings- and they’ll only do this in the car, wondering if they are in the right area.

Once they get inside, they’ll forget what it looks like outside the walls.

Looks fantastic, go for it!

@kt235021:  I think it’s even better that the outside is ‘ugly’ – people will show up and maybe be like, bleh this place seems so industrial, how boring.

And then they walk inside and it’s like BAM this is awesome!!!!! 🙂

I like it, I say go for it! No one will really care what the outside looks like. Some people don’t even care what the inside looks like

I think the outside will make the inside look all the more impressive.  Unless they have been to that events center before they will have no idea what to expect then BAM!  WHOA!  WOW!

It’s gorgeous!  And the outside just looks industrial, not like ghetto scary or anything.  I think it really lends itself to the 1920s speakeasy vibe.

I think it will be fine. If you’re worried about outdoor photos and aren’t having the ceremony at a church or someplace with pretty landscaping, why not do your first look/bridal party photos at the park, or invite your bridal party to a day-after session?

I say go for it. Looking at the google earth images it looks like it was winter…and you’re getting married in April. The grass will be green and the trees will have buds on them, which will help make it not look so industrial!

I love it! Beautiful and unique, plus the outside adds character:)

If people are turned off by the outside, they will be that much more blown away when then walk in. I say do it!!!

Remember the saying “it’s what’s on the inside that counts”

That definitely applies here 🙂
