Yes, a fourth installment about our venue search. I know I might be beating a dead horse here—apologies for the awful idiom—but for me, the venue sets the tone for the wedding. Without it, you not only don’t have the horse, you don’t have the stick!
While we are thoroughly psyched about getting married at the Mansion at Valley Country Club, there are concessions we’ve made picking it over Martin’s West, the other venue finalist. Basically, it’s not going to be the precise wedding I pictured the first moment I walked through the door.
The Yummy Stuff
Martin’s West is a foodie’s paradise. Your guests eat from practically the minute they walk into the ballroom. You get dozens of hors d’oeuvre options. You get multiple appetizer options. You get a ton of meat, pasta, and fish options. And you can easily get four different dessert tables plus a full-size wedding cake. All that without breaking the bank (at least, the typical wedding bank).
