We looked at this Venue and liked it very much however we ended up booking with Malibou Lake Mountain Club. What I did not like about Malibou west was that the guests would be walking through the reception area in order to get to the ceremony area. Therefore, the element of surprise for revealing the reception area was gone. I also did not care for the fact that I would be locked in the bridal room that was right next to the entrance the guests were coming in. There would have been no way for me to make a last minute trip to the ladies room without being seen by guests.  Lastly, we were concerned about parking for guests and figured we would have to have a valet company come in which added expenses.


We originally REALLY wanted to be married at the beach so we were thrilled when we found this venue that was reasonably affordable. In the end however, we gave up the beach and went for the beautiful lake setting of Malibou lake because the amenities of that venue FAR outweighed any place we had seen.

Thank you so much for your input. :o) So valet would have to be added? It's the cheapest place I've seen for beaches and everything. I'll definitely think about it! Did you like the people? I've looked in San Diego too but the food is where it gets to us. It's crazy how that works. We'll see how things go. Thank you!!! How are you? how's your week been going so far? Have a good one :o)

I got married at MWBC and absolutely loved it! Our guests had no problem with street parking (145 guests) and I hired two babysitters and all the parents were able to drop off their kids with the sitters in the 'bridal room' during the ceremony and reception. The parents all LOVED it!! They were able to drink, socialize, dance, without worrying about their kids. I had my ceremony on the deck over looking the ocean and my pictures were amazing! I would totally recommend MWBC, it's such a hidden gem!

Did you use the decor that they had? the linens? where did you go? The other prices are way too pricey but just wondering where I should go

I went with Carrie Fick Sawyer for decor (their recommended vendor) and she was fantastic! She did the lights (I got white and pink lanterns and the 'waterfall' by the dance floor) and fabric, and a chuppah and aisle runner. I recommend her because she knows the space so well and she knows the electrical connections in the building and actually helped my caterer with his set up. 


My linens, table cloths, napkins, and chair covers came from my caterer. And I just used the tables and chairs they provided at MWBC. They set up the chairs on the deck for the ceremony first, and moved in inside for the reception while my guests enjoyed cocktail hour and the string quartet on the deck. (I had photos done on the beach at this time). It worked out very well. 


In case you are interested, here are a few photos from my 2nd photog: http://aileensecord.com/tag/malibu-west-beach-club/
