I'm torn between a few different place as our wedding venue. We look at blithewold mansion in Bristol and LOVED it, but it's really expensive, which breaks my heart. We also looks at Mt hope farm, I had my eye on that place for a while I do really like it but I feel like the barn is so small we're expecting around 150 guests and I think it would just be uncomfortable in there.
Everywhere else I've looked at is only online except for Harbor lights marina in warwick. I've been there a couple of times. My issue with them is that it's very modern and I really want a rustic vintage wedding which I think I can get that feel there with decorations but I also wanted it to be a fun wedding that's outdoor with some yard games possibly and I'm just not sure I can do that there.
The other venue I'm looking at now is glen manor, which I love the pictures of it but I'm not sure how I feel about the multi rooms. There's also willowdale estate in MA but I'm not sure of the prices yet I'm waiting to hear back. And the last place I found with Smith Barn also in MA, but I don't know if it's not formal enough and I'm worried about the size of the barn.
So basically I'm asking what anyone's opinions are with harbor lights, glen manor, willowdale estate and smith barn. Even the other two I mentioned I wouldn't mind feed back on. I really want a rustic vintage wedding that's classy but fun for everyone, and I just don't know where that would be at a reasonable price. Thanks!
