Hi Bees –
It’s been a while since I’ve posted on the Bee, but since then I have gotten ENGAGED!!!! Well we are nearing the end of our venue hunting stage and I’m down to (2) venues I’m trying to decide between. Both are beautiful and have their own uniqueness. I need some suggestive help, thoughts and or feedback to help me with my decision. Maybe you guys will call some things out that I haven’t thought of. My fiance loves MC because of the historical features, and while I do too, I love the Groomsmen due to the elegance with the stairs and chandeliers. Thoughts bees??? 🙂
(1) The Millennium Center
2) The Grand Marquise

Both look amazing. I am a bit partial to MC, it looks unique compared to the other.

I personally prefer the look of the Groomsmen. If elegant is the look you’re going for, that would be the perfect venue! I agree with the pp though in that the MC is more unique.

They are both lovely. I like the MC one just slightly more. Maybe you can find a grand staircase somewhere to do some bridal portrait photos before the wedding?

I vote MC. While the Groomsmen is gorgeous, I feel like I’ve seen it over and over – like it has that typical “banquet hall” feel to it. The MC feels a bit more unique, I feel like it’s more “intimate” than Groomsmen.

Is the decor standard for the MC? It looks like the MC is a blank slate and the curtains and chandeliers could be rentals. I dont know what your budget is but the Groomsmen already looks terrific which would save you money because rentals add up quickly.

I voted MC because it just seems more modern and sleek while Groomsmen seems a bit dated to me.

Both are very pretty! I’d go with whichever one seems easier to work with.

They are both gorgeous but I am leaning toward the Groomsmen because fo the stairs. All I can see is fairtytale (Sleeping Beauty and Beauty and the Beast). LOL

Both are gorgeous! I think it depends on the “feel” you’re going for, and while I’m a sucker for chandeliers, but I much prefer the MC! It’s very classy and unique.
