I cannot wait until we choose a venue for our ceremony and reception, because I am driving myself CRAZY looking at them online. I feel like it is practically taking over my life! My parents have very generously offered to pay for the hall and food, but I don't want them to spend too much so I'm trying to find places that are fairly reasonable priced. FI's family is coming from the Toledo area, mine are mostly downriver. I also want something that isn't going to clash with our color scheme, which is a deep blue with pink.
The color scheme is making it tough because a lot of places I've seen pictures of really look like they would clash. Seems burgundy and gold are pretty popular reception hall colors in this area, but FI really wants blue since it's both of our favorite color, and I have my heart set on pink gerbera daisies. I didn't realize it would be so hard to find a place wth neutral colors!
Going to tour some venues this week and hoping we find the one! So far I'm really liking Stone Creek Banquet Hall in Flat Rock, Weber's Inn in Ann Arbor (worried it might be a bit pricy though), Club Venetian in Madison Heights, Silver Shores in Wyandotte, and Stone Ridge Golf Club in Bowling Green. Any other suggestions? 100-150 guests, and I'm hoping to keep it at about a max of $40pp.
I really like the idea of a wedding at Wildwood since it's somewhere me and FI go together a lot, but I'm concerned about parking, I know it can be a nightmare!
