    I'm in St. Cloud. Is that outside enough? I see you may still be a student, I went there. Let me know if you want more info or help!

    Hmmm, Hastings. I don't know that that counts. But it's out in the country! :)

    I have a venue booked for our ceremony and reception but now I am rethinking everything.  I just want to be out of the city, whether it be 3 hours or 20 minutes.  I am also considering cutting my guest list to under 100 (it's at 160 now)  it just all seems too much for me as it is right now.  I want something small and intimate.  ideas?

    Where are you getting married now? Can you still cut your guest list without changing the venue? I'm getting married in Stillwater...

    I'm getting married in Key West, but I think that's a bit farther than you we're looking for. There was a post not that long ago on locations like the Enchanted Barn and others along those lines. That might be a good list for you to start with.

    We are getting  married in Hayward, WI (my hometown).  It's 2 1/2 hrs north of the cities.  We looked into a couple other places; Heartwood Conference Center in Trego, WI and Lakewoods resort in Cable, WI.  You should check them out!

    @sclo - I have a spreadsheet of almost 40 venues and details on each, most of them outside the cities. We were going for a "rustic elegance" feel, so a lot of them fit that bill.

    PM me with your email if you want me to send it to you.

    We are getting married in Duluth. There are tons of beautiful indoor and outdoor spaces. Our ceremony will be at the Leif Erickson Rose Garden overlooking Lake Superior and the reception will be at the Greysolon Ballroom. There are tons of great prices outside the metro. Metro locations were twice as expensive and not nearly  as nice.

    kkae- we are getting married at the Millenium Gardens at Plymouth Creek and the reception would be in the ball room there.  Cutting down the guest list is for sure going to happen.  I'm thinking that I don't want anymore than 115 there.
