    It’s so hard to say without seeing pics. Can you tell us the names of the places so we can look them up & then get back to you?

    The food sounds just minutely better to me at the Irish pub.

    @MrsUPS:  I normally don’t get involved when I see two people needlessly “having it out” on a thread, but this time I felt compelled. You said you wouldn’t go to the pub because you don’t do bars. Then the other posted came in with a pleasant reply explaining that pubs are actually not always the same thing as bars.

    Somehow (and trust me, none of us know how) you took it to crazy town and got all holier than thou.

    I’m pretty sure nobody gives a shit if you want to go to a bar, a pub, or a mental institution. Get over yourself.

    @sjhanddab2014:  I voted Irish. In all honesty, I think the Italian menu might appeal to more people, but I love the atmosphere of an Irish pub and corned beef and cabbage! 

    What time of year is the Wedding? Italian would be better in colder weather, Irish in warm.

    i think you will be fine either way you go. If you feel the food is equally good, choose the place that has the atmosphere you like.

    @MrsSkeletonKey:  How exactly did I get “holier than thou”? Did I say oh you’re going to hell because you go to pubs? No, I did not. You are the one taking it to crazy town!

    I’m pretty sure nobody gives a shit if you want to go to a bar, a pub, or a mental institution.


    Apparently, YOU along with the other poster do as BOTH of you now have taken it upon yourselves to tell me why I should not consider pubs as bars. Otherwise, once again you would have just stated your opinion and moved on.

    @MrsUPS:  most Italian restaurants have bars in them too!  

     

    op, I think the pub would be a more laid back compared to the Italian restaurant.  All depends in what type of wedding you would prefer!

    @CityBearBride:  There is a difference between a “bar” and as I stated in other posts if those who are judging me would bother to read that is what the pubs around here are and a restaurant with a bar in it.

    @sjhanddab2014:  It really is a shame that I could not just give you my opinion, which stated more reasons for not wanting to go to a pub than my beliefs, without being attacked by people who can not just state their opinions and move on but would rather find a bee to personally attack. Good luck with your wedding and whatever your choice, I sure it will be amazing to you and your Fiance and that is all that matters.

    Good night!

    Here’s the photo from the restaurant’s website with the basic layout of the room. We had three tables set up vertically to accommodate our guests (2 long with about 15-20 seats and 1 short that sat 10). What you can’t see  in this photo is the small alcove where they set up a bar for us and the door that opened to their patio.

    I’m still waiting on my professional photos, but here are some shots our guests took during the reception portion of the evening – 

    Overall, it was super intimate without being crowded. We all just talked and mingled from 3-7pm. Afterwards, we headed back to the hotel where everyone was staying for some more socializing before hitting a local bar for the after-party.

    sjhanddab2014:  We just got our photos back from our photographer, and I wanted to share a few with you. We didn’t really ask him to take too many during the reception but these are some of my favorites. All photos by Ryan Maxwell Photography.

    Oh geez. Irish pub makes me thinking too-casual, grabbing a pint beer with some guys with some college folks in the back of the bar yelling.

     

    Italian Restruant is classier.
