Perfect venue except...

There’s a checkered wall that I think is out of place for the wedding I want in the room. Everything else is perfect, it’s a shelter house pretty much so pricing is cheaper than other venues but nicer than most, BYOB which saves a ton on alcohol, very friendly and responsive staff, and someone I know had nothing but great things to say about her wedding there. I’m sure that the photographer can work around it though. Thought? I love the sparkly lights and romantic type feel. See pics attached.

    I don't think the checkered wall really even looks bad. If you don't like it, maybe you could consider pipe and draping to cover it up?

    I really like the wall. I wouldn't give it much thought. If you hate it, just tell your photographer not to use that specific wall as a background for pictures.

    That’s a good idea. Just wanted opinions on what you all thought. I just didn’t want it to look funny in photos so maybe we can just work around it if I decide on this place.

    I am not a fan of the wall BUT I love the rest of the room and I do not feel that checkered wall takes away from how beautiful the room is. Maybe you could drape it if it really bothers you.

    I wouldn’t have noticed the wall if you didn’t point it out. I don’t think it’s going to have much of an effect on the overall look of your wedding. Like the other posters said, just ask your photographer to try not to take pictures against that wall. It’s a lovely venue and I don’t think the wall takes away from that at all.

    I didn’t even notice the checkered wall. I was picturing smaller squares. I think the checkered pattern is large enough that it doesn’t look bad.

    I didn’t really notice. The rest of the room is so romantic. Just tell your photographer to work around it. Book that venue!

    I, actually, really like the checkerboard wall! It gives it character. 😊 You could definitely use drapery to cover it up, though!

    So I visited the place today and it looked way nicer in photos, lol. I didn’t get the vibe of even really liking the whole area. Oh well, off to the next.
