I am in search for a location in western ny (Im in the fingerlakes, but the groom's family is all out of state, so making my family drive an hour either way is not a big deal)
I am a DIY bride, through and through, but I am having a hard time finding places that are not strict on what is or is permitted. I want eclectic vintage with lots of DIY elements. Outside of a lodge at a park (which i wouldnt necessarily mind) I am looking for places that more basically rent the space, versus picking from a set of packages.
I know there are also nature centers, but I have no idea what they look like on the inside.
basically, any or all suggestions are welcome.
my guest list will probably be around 100-120 people, depending on how many of the groom's family plans on making the trek from Michigan.
