Today's Possibilities!

I spent my morning looking at two potential locations. Both are in Foxboro, and neither have hotels on their grounds but there are hotels nearby (about 1 mile)... still not exactly what I want though.

Christina's, was very nice. Although there's no outdoor area with lots of open grass space or water close by, there are very nice flowers and trees that surround the small outdoor area that is available. The ceremony pictures they were able to show us looked fantastic. The cocktail area is nice and the actual ballroom is definitely a standard wedding facility. There's no immediate "wow" factor but ficus trees with white lights as well as uplighting is available at no additional cost - which means we could dress up the room to make it look more like us and less like a banquet hall. The package deals are simply amazing. Everything we would need - food, dj, perks for the wedding party, flowers, videography, one hour open bar, etc., etc., etc. [Literally!]. The list keeps going on and on and it's all very reasonably priced. It's a place that I will bring Sean to [he decided to opt out of today's festivities] just to get his thoughts on the venue.

From there we attended an open house at Lake View Pavilion. There was a definite "wow" factor but the practicality of the venue just isn't there. There's no bridal suite so they expect the bride to arrive at the venue ready - which just isn't possible, and I wouldn't want to try to work it out. We walked all around the [GORGEOUS!] ballroom and still couldn't locate the bathrooms. It's very pricey and everything that allows the ballroom to have its' "wow" factor is an additional cost.

Now we have a little bit of a break from visiting venues. The next planned date is a road trip [!] to New Hampshire on February 27th. We will be seeing three different locations which I'm very excited about! To me, that just screams "destination wedding" and I loooove that =)
