You should be fine with that budget. The Tribute is a nice venue with an outdoor ceremony space. It's more about what you see when you picture your wedding. But those are both nice full service venues that will provide everything for you and will make for a nice elegant wedding.As far as wedding planners go, Kathie Seeley with Grand Events has done two Knottie weddings at the Tribute so she is someone that would be very familiar with that venue if you go with it.
I second PP who suggested a planner. They will be able to help you and lower your stress level A LOT. Since you have a healthy budget, venue will probably come down to location. Where in the metroplex do you want to get married? For example, for me being in Dallas proper was important, and so was being close to one of the airports. That narrowed it down a lot.
