As a newly engaged bride-to-be, I know this is the most important thing to take care of. Without a venue, I don't have an official wedding date.
So --- I've been looking all over trying to find the perfect place that is still budget-friendly. Thanks to all the great suggestions I've received so far, I've been busy. I've even put the Moms to work for me. I'm really hoping I can find the perfect "pop-up" but I'm looking into traditional venues too - just in case!
Then I can get busy thinking of the fun stuff - color scheme, dress and of course the food!
We are going for casually elegant. Nothing too industrial. Ideally a farm-to-table feel would be perfect. Strands of lights, lanterns, candles and flowers. We need a REAL bathroom and prefer to be indoors due to possible weather issues. And we are looking at approximately 200 guests.
We are looking at Hale Farm and Botsum. We would rather be a little closer to the city if possible so there are more lodging options close by for our guests. I know there's a perfect place out there somewhere!
