My fiance and I have looked at two venues and came home today to make a pros and cons of each. One is a local park and barn where the ceremony would be outside and the reception inside, but there is no kitchen or bathrooms in the facility. There are bathrooms adjacent to the reception area, but I worry should it rain..we all will be drowned rats. It costs about $225 more for the day to rent it than the other venue. The other venue is a 1815 mansion that is less expensive, but the courtyard that I would like to use has brick that is coming up a bit due to roots from a big ole beautiful tree there. I am worried that any of us might trip on those bricks and fall down
We could do an all outdoors wedding and reception, but would have to walk a bit to use the bathroom and I am sure that would not be fun at all.
I am at a loss...there are good and bad to be said about both places.
