We are having some trouble selecting a reception location and was wondering if there were any similar places I may have missed or should take a second look at. We are expecting around 180 guests for fall next year and are hoping to stay somewhere in the general downtown area. I have met with the following:
The Westin Downtown
The Ball Park Hilton
The Peabody Opera House
Forest Park Visitor Center
Forest Park World's Fair Pavillion
Some we have been more impressed with than others, but it's kind of the Goldilocks syndrome "too this, too that, none just right." I have requested information from the Chase and wondering if anyone had pricing information on them? Same with Lumen - waiting on information. We don't really have a "vibe" we are going for, but rather are just looking for a way to be a good host and still not end up broke. We briefly considered the Four Seasons, but they aren't in our price range and we aren't able to shift our budget that far.
Any thoughts? I understand its possible we are just being picky, but I feel like if we are going to spend the time and money on an event to host our friends and family from the far corners of the earth, it should be something we are happy about and proud of, right? God. Clearly Im taking wedding planning too seriously :P TIA!
