Venue Southern Illinois
Hello! I'm new to the knot and newly engaged on 5/21. I'm from Fairview Heights, IL and my fiancé from KY. We are interested in a small (75-100) wedding. We are actually looking to have a "backyard" type wedding as many of the more common wedding venues seem to be so monopolized with required # of guest, required vendors, etc. We thought it would be more fun to find a vacation rental (perhaps by a lake or with a pond) with a large property that would allow us to host an outdoor wedding for 75-100 people. We do not want a barn or wood cabin but are open to rustic/vintage/historic type locations. Even a modern rental house is fine. Prefer southern IL primarily southwest. I've looked on VRBO, home away, and craigslist but I'm not finding much. Any advice? Suggestion of venues that won't break the bank or know someone who has a vacation rental property? Thanks!! (BTW- hoping for May 2015 but can be flexible.)
