    I like the brunch idea- it’s different, especially if your guests aren’t late-night party type people. I’m also a huge fan of taking as much stress as possible out of the equation, and it sounds like option #1 really does that for you! Plus the ability to upgrade- that’s great!

    Good luck deciding!

    I would save yourself the time from planning and the headache and just go with the grove with the barn. Not only does this have an inside option (deciding factor for our venue) but it’s also very quaint and beautiful. It’s a barn but it doesn’t really look like the tub of the mill barn venues where I live. Brunch weddings have the potential to be amazing and if you can afford the upgrades at this venue then I’m sure yours will be.

    rvrmtn10 :  Option 1.

    ALWAYS have a rain day plan. This makes the second venue a big no-no.

    What time of year is your wedding & what is the weather typically like at that time where you live? I voted for the botanical garden, but the lack of a rain plan does make me VERY nervous, so I’d probably switch my vote if you don’t live in an area where the chance of rain is very low and the temperature will be pleasant at the time of year you’re having your wedding.

    I think both options are very beautiful so I would say save yourself the stress of DIY and go with option 1. If you like the ceremony site better AND it’s cheaper AND it has a bad weather contingency plan AND it would fit your low-key guest list who don’t like to stay out late AND the venue plans everything for you, I think option 1 is the clear winner.

    rvrmtn10 :  9-1 should be plenty of time. I would definitely give a shot list to your photographer so that they can make a definite schedule for photos just in case but it should be fine.

    rvrmtn10 :  Brunch please!

    We’re having a morning wedding too because I don’t want to wait that long, means people who are travelling a couple of hours don’t have to get a hotel room.  If you think you’ll miss out on the evening then you could host an after party elsewhere?

    I should add, I’m a UK bee and us Brits like things to go on!  Most weddings are at about lunchtime and continue until midnight (or whenever the bar closes).

    I like the look of venue #2, but I LOVE the idea of brunch & the back-up for extreme weather for venue #1 is invaluable. Is the venue willing to extend the time from 8am-2pm? That would be ideal imo.
