Looking for Unique Wedding Venue for a very large group-Help!
I am appealing for help in finding a wedding venue for us.
My fiance and i are going to have a very large wedding (we are inviting about 400 people, we think about 350 will attend).
I really wnat something unique with good food and something different from what everyone else does (ie anything but a banquet hall).
So far we are looking at:
-Fermenting cellar at the Distillery District (may be too small..they are checking)
Does anyone have any other ideas, been to any weddings that were particularly memorable in large venues? Or has anyone been to weddings at any of these locations?
We are losing hope quickly!

Take a look at the Concert Hall in The Carlu. It's an incredible space capable of handling your numbers. You have a choice of caterers including Daniel et Daniel and Marigolds and Onions, If your party becomes slightly smaller, the Round Room is also gorgeous.
The Carlu would be my recommendation as well. I think you'll find that even if the Fermenting Cellar holds a group your size, it will cost just as much as the Carlu in the end b/c you must bring in everything. It is one of my fav spaces in the city b/c of that but it is also one of the most expensive options.
I can't remember the capacity at the Design Exchange but you may want to look into that as well.
I attended a lovely wedding with about 400 guests at the Sunnyside Pavillion - great spot on the lake.
We had the same numbers as yours. We looked at Palais Royale and it was too small for our needs.
We had our wedding at the Liberty Grand in the Governors Ballroom. What is great about Liberty Grand is that it is all in - they look after everything except the band and the flowers. Our food was great - tailored to our tastes. The location is fantastic with lots of parking and it is accessible by transit. Plus - they were great to deal with.
Thanks everyone! This is very helpful! I am looking into the Sunnyside Pavillion..thanks! we looked at the Liberty Grand and we liked it a lot but prefered a place where we would be the only wedding on a particular night. I also found reviews online from people who had terrible experiences with people from other weddings crashing their wedding...which put me off a bit. Thanks for the tip though!
Check out the Capitol. I'm not sure that it will hold that number for dinner AND dancing - but it will hold well over 200. It will hold more if you are foregoing the dancefloor I think?
