Alternative location - love it

Hey everyone
my name is chris and i am new here :D
me and my love are going to get married on the 22/08/2015...
i am sooo happy we finally found our dream location!! :)
of course i find castles and venues like that beautiful, but i am just not that extremely princess-type and never was... but i like modern style. so we decided to choose a tent for our reception... i know tent sounds a little boring and not very fancy, but finally decorated it looks sooooo gorgeous! (on the pics i have seen)
so if someone is thinking about a divinely location for reception and wants to be creative with decorating and all that stuff, that would absolutely be my tip for u!!!

(please dont be too strict with my english terms, i am not a native speaker ;) )

hi ychris822

my reception is taking place outside and i already was thinking of an alternative in case of bad weather...
maybe your tip could be helpful
how many guests would fit in such a tent? how much does it cost?
are bathrooms integrated?

oh hey anna^^

i dont have a price proposal until now, but you should calculate on some more money than an inside venue would cost, because you have to rent almost everything, like tables, chairs, plates, silverware, and so on...but therefor you are able to choose everything on your own and let every small detail fit your expectations ;)
as far as i know there are lots of tent-versions, so u can choose one that fits your wishes and your number of guests. i guess you´d have to rent bathrooms extra.. didnt ask for that til now

 thanks for welcoming me ^^

a pavillion will be great too! much more open i guess?! i just was so scared about weather changes that i decided for myself to take a closed tent ;)

even if you will see some more of the nature in your "tent"/ pavillion :)

 Hi and welcome!  Thanks for the tip, I am getting married in a state park and our reception is in a pavilion so I agreed with you on that simple beauty.

 sounds interesing. we initially thought abt that...actually we were going to go w/ a venue that had that option, but the cost was getting out of hand b/c we were going to include lighting and dancefloor etc lol.

Reg bathrooms, the venue should have that in place...i mean if there's a kitchen, then there's a bathroom. renting porter potty wouldn't be glamourous for a wedding.

good luck!

 We have gone around and around with different venues and ideas and we wound up back at our original plan to have the wedding at a park that has a pavilion. Not fancy or glam but it suits us and the simple wedding that we are planning.
