We want to get married in a beautiful, classic, historic ballroom that looks very grand. We love the look of the Belvedere Hotel in Baltimore, but then discovered that the ballrooms in Martin's Valley Mansion look pretty similar in style (though the marble is fake) and that a wedding at Martin's Valley Mansion could be half the cost of a Belvedere wedding!
The main issue is that Martin's Valley Mansion is located in a shopping plaza next to a regular gym and some other random shops. The shopping plaza seems to clash horribly with the grand wedding theme we had in mind.
Do you think guests will be turned off by the location of the Valley Mansion? Or since the whole thing will be inside, will it not matter?
Will the guests enjoy the free parking at the Martin's Valley Mansion, or would it be better to have the wedding in the city at the Belvedere?
