The color of the carpet and chairs. We decided not to get seat covers. oh, and the giant chandelier.. not really my style. But we met at a wedding at this venue, so we didn’t even bother looking anywhere else. The sentimental value of it trumps everything else. 🙂

The fact that there are no trees in the courtyard. It’s really cute but I would have liked some trees to hang stuff from.

The lack of free parking for our guests but that was the expected consequence in choosing a venue in the CBD for the convenience of all our guests who are spread out all over Auckland.

- Wedding: September 2013 - Creek club at ion, SC
The fact that it ends so early. I wish it went on to 12 but no, at 10 people start winding down and we all go to a different place

THe chairs are kind of ugly, but not paying for chair covers. Oh and it’s at a church (both ceremony and reception) and I really had wanted a big dance hall somewhere but couldn’t afford it.

We will be finalizing our venue in the next week, but for the one that is the front-runner – we LOVE it, but the downside is that it is a 30 minute drive from our ceremony (at our church)….we’ve agonized over whether that’s too far, but the bottom line is either we have it somewhere that is totally ‘eh’ that is close to the church, or people have to drive 20+ minutes.

I love our reception space — but it’s just the for the walls and floor. It’s scary that I have to hire out literally everything, even tables and chairs. And it’s in a small town, so almost everything that will be hired out in terms of vendors is at least an hour away.

I love just about every thing about our venue except for the wall color. It’s a really bright cheery yellow…nice, but hard to fit in to my color scheme. Not sure why they wouldn’t have kept them nuetral.

The lack of parking (normal for the area) and the fact that it is on third floor with no elevator but very steep stairs. Oh, and the fact that hotels near it are pricier, but again – common for the area (northern NJ suburb of NYC).

- Wedding: November 2014 - Nazareth Hall
I love everything about our venue, except that we only get one food choice for a plated meal plus a vegetarian option… all in all that’s probably one of the things that doesn’t matter. I love it, so does FI; and our families and friends do as well even though it’s two hours from everyone. Oh well, c’est la vie!

The chairs are uglyish but since our ewedding is casual noone will notice. Other than that I love everything about it 🙂

The beach where our ceremony is taking place is part of a national park, so it has a few odd rules: no amplified music, so we have to pay for a live musician (don’t mind) and no more than 25 chairs, which is okay with me as I don’t really want anymore guests than that. But the one that really gets me is no glass on the beach, so some beautiful ceremony decor items we love just aren’t allowed. You don’t realize just how many ceremony elements are made at least in part of glass until it’s banned from your ceremony space!

I looked at one place which had a private bridal party bathroom, which was awesome. The one we booked doesn’t.

I think we pretty much chose our venue just for the bridal suite, lol. On our walk-through before reserving it, DH just knew I’d never let it go. It was a bonus that the resort had a tent for an outdoor ceremony (his wish), golfing (for the Dads/bridal party the morning of), and worked in our budget. 😛

I love the looks fog my venue, the amazing food, the cake that comes with it, the photo opps, and even the chairs. This may sound silly but I don’t like the location of mY venue. It’s kind of in the middle of nowhere. The hotels were booking are 20 mins away and were providing transpiration. There is only one bathroom for iur wedding too and kind of small, But if those are the only problems I have I consider myself lucky!
