And is it all inclusive (includes tables, chairs, food, drink, and more), semi-inclusive, or DIY (in this context meaning you have to get vendors for every single thing-tables, food, bar, etc -what I call build a wedding)?

    Jaci I looked at a train station too and it was such a cool space but just way too big for what we needed! Yours is lovely though.

    I rented the outdoor garden area of an old historic house in San Antonio which is now a museum.

    It is not typically used as an event venue, but it is available for rent. I had to bring everything in. Chairs, tables, catering, etc... It was a build a wedding! I loved it so much. I Still love it so much!

    I really liked building it ourselves, furnishing our own bar, etc. I did not have a wedding planner.

    Eta: behind the arches is where we had the ceremony, which later became a large dance floor. There was another seperate side patio area where people had cocktails while it was being changed over. Dinner tables were around the fountain. It is all lit up at night and is honestly one of the most dreamy places I have ever seen! Smiley laugh

    Mine was a garden (for the ceremony and dancing) with a really unique building (for the dinner). The building was a gas station in the 40s and has since been totally rehabbed into an event space. Exposed brick and floor to ceiling windows. It was amazing!! It was semi-inclusive, coming with the tables, chairs, linens, and sound system. Then our caterer provided plates, silverware, and glasses so it was really nice that we didn't have to work with a separate rental company.

    Barn (FH's only requirement for getting married was if we could do it in a barn). I guess it is considered "semi" inclusive? Tables and chairs are included in the price as well as our honeymoon cottage. Unfortunately it doesn't include food or our alcohol.

    Lodge/day camp. Totally DIY -- definitely a headache, but it was really important to my FH and it is nice to really customize it to us.

    We are using a hotel (adjoining ballrooms) that has pretty much everything included (tables, chairs, linens, centerpieces - not using theirs, provide cake cutting service, easels for display). Wedding package includes cocktail hour. Bar, of course is separate based on type & we do have a food/beverage minimum. We also get a suite that night (for free) & a room on our anniversary. The all-inclusiveness and location are why we chose it.
