My fiance and I are just starting to plan our wedding (engaged last Sunday!). It's a bit difficult since we live in DC, so we're flying out to MN next weekend to look at venues. We only have two days, so we want to maximize our time. I'm getting frustrated with the lack of information online, though - they all want you to come in for an appointment! I'm just curious if anyone has looked at any of the following places and has any information or feedback, especially cost-wise:
-Weisman Art Museum (this is our top choice!)
-James J. Hill Reference Library
-St. Paul College Club
-Calhoun Beach Club
-Minnesota History Center
-Minneapolis Institute of Art
Wedding details: 130-140 guests, August 2014, ceremony will be at a church.
Thoughts? Suggestions? Thanks in advance!
