go for it! I like the wooden beams and exposed brick!

Also, our venue wasn’t the most amazing looking place either but no one said anything, we got a great deal and therefore didn’t go in to debt over it and our photographer is so talented that her pictures made the place look ten times more amazing than it did in real life!

I actually really like it! It kinda has a barn feel, which I think make the coolest venues! Maybe some tulle above the beams, and uplighting on the walls would dress the place right up!

Well, the chairs strike me as the problem, they just aren’t particularly attractive.

That being said, the beams on the ceiling are great. 

I think you could make it work with decor, but I would figure out how much it will cost and make sure it won’t cost you 6K to decorate it.

You could do a lot with that space!  It’s nice that it is very open and I personally love the exposed brick and high rafters.

I really don’t think it is that bad! I actually really love the beam work & the stripes on the wall & dance floor — If there was a venue like that in my area I would go for it!

The thing that stood out most to me was the carpet, but not a lot you can do about that. 

Do the chair covers come with the venue or is that extra $$ ? Either way, you could dress them up with a bow or something in an accent colour instead of the white on white shown.

Other than the carpet, I actually really like the look of the place.  With decent lighting, it’ll look fantastic.  definitely go for it.  🙂

that’s such a great deal! since you’re saving on the space, maybe you could splurge on chiavari chairs!

I think actually it has a lot of character and charm, and simple decorations go a lot farther in my opinion, makes it look elegant
