It’s been a journey so far, but our venue and date have finally been decided on.
We looked far and wide, from suburban to urban options.
Should we go farther out into the suburbs for a better price, but more complicated transportation for everyone?
Or stay in the City with easy access to transportation, hotels and other things to do?
In the end, we decided to stay in the City, but still make the budget work for us.
The venue is an operating dance studio (which I love because I danced all they way through college). It is not a super common venue for a wedding, which I also love. When I mentioned it to a few other vendors, they had not heard of it as an event space (which can be good or bad, I guess).
We can choose any vendors we want and it is BYOB!
The location in dance studio mode
It is an intimate timber loft with string lights already strung across the ceiling and wrapped around the beams. The hardwood floor and exposed brick complete the look I was going for, without the large price tag attached.
There won’t be much to decorate, just a bit here and there.
We just need our long banquet tables for our family style dinner (either BBQ or tacos) and I think it will be gorgeous!
