These, dear readers, are only a few of the hundreds of venues that we've now spent a good 30+ hours researching, only to find out that they won't work for us. Sigh. The main challenge for us is the fact that we had to wait to set a date until Robbie's band solidifed their tour schedule, and 6-1/2 months isn't much advance notice for wedding venues. 75% of the places we've fallen in love (or even like) with are booked. Neither of us are overly picky either. We just want a nice, simple place that we can decorate and throw a little party to celebrate our love. An outhouse on a tiny piece of land would suffice at this point. I'm kidding. Sort of.
If any of you know of any pretty rustic or vintage-y places within an hour or two of Chicago that would be perfect for our wedding and reception, please, please share! (If your suggestion is available and we book it, I'll send you your pick of any of my 8 x 10 art prints as a thank you gift!).
