Hi ladies, first time poster here. I've been lurking on the boards for a little while and have seen some great advice so I thought I'd try my hand. Sorry it's a bit long, check out the CN at the bottom if you prefer
Ok. So we're not getting married 'til August 2012, but I'm wanting to get the venues nailed down early so there's at least SOMEthing that's set in stone. So the FI and I have been checking out places and we've kind of half-decided on the Heritage Village for our ceremony.
We'd like for our guests (appox 60) to not have to travel too far to get to the reception. So, with the Sharonville location in mind, we've started looking at reception locations. We've looked at the Sharonville Convention Center as well as The Iron Horse in Glendale. At both places all FI had to say was that he wanted a place with more 'texture.' What the heck does that even mean!?!
All I can assume is that he wants something that's more unique and/or historical (The Iron Horse had been remodeled, so even though the exterior is oldlike, it doesn't feel that way inside). I'm at a loss at what to look at in that area. Also, because it'll likely be hot, we're wanting indoor with airconditioning, though a place with a partial indoor/outdoor is fine too.
If anyone could suggest places to consider for the reception, I'd really appreciate it. THANKS
CN: Been to Sharonville Convention Center and The Iron Horse but FI doesn't like them due to lack of 'texture' - what are my (indoor with A/C) options in that area that are unique and/or historic?
