Preparing for I Do: 6.16.12'- Venue

After saying yes to the marriage proposal Alison and Patrick were ready to start planning their wedding. First things first, Alison and Patrick knew they needed to book the venues. An easy decision for them was the church, Annunciation Greek Orthodox Church, the church Alison grew up in.

Then came the not so easy part, mutually deciding on a venue for the reception. It made it easier when they both knew they wanted a location in downtown Milwaukee because of the convenience for out of town guests and the beauty of the city. They made a lot of visits to downtown venues, and after the tours and meetings Alison and Patrick decided on the Harbor Lights Room with Zilli Hospitality group. The room provides the couple with both indoor and outdoor settings for the guests to enjoy, which was very important to Alison. The decor gives off a casual, contemporary, yet elegant feel for a great reception.

When deciding on a venue for your big event, it is important to make sure it fits the style you are looking for. Alison and Patrick wanted something that would fit their personalities, casual and fun. Other things to keep in mind when picking a venue: how many guests, venue capacity, catering options and entertainment facilities.

Remember to tell your florist the style of the venue, or if you can bring in pictures! It helps the designer learn more about your personal style and the wedding/event. Knowing this information will make for a smoother floral consultation and more time to be creative!
