The VENUE

1 04 2009

Plano Centre

It is called Plano Centre and is located at Spring Creek and 75.

It is a beautiful brick building with trees surrounding all of the roads leading into it and it also has a rose garden and nice outdoor area to tie the knot if we so choose to do so! 
We will have the ceremony either outside if the weather allows or in one of the smaller meeting rooms within the center. Each room has huge windows from floor to ceiling that look out on the garden area of the venue. 

Windhaven Room

Our reception area is the Windhaven room. It has a really cool super high ceiling with a sunroof. (Is that what you call it? lol) There are windows on the ceiling!! The centre provides dinner, appetizers (fruit and cheese displays), soda, tea, water, etc. They’re going to do our bartending though we’re only doing beer/wine/champagne. They provide a dance floor, they light up the trees, they provide all of the tables, chairs, linens, candle bowls, mirrors, hurricanes, candle sticks for the centerpieces, they have dressing rooms, super easy free parking, etc!! They have a soundsystem too in case I want to do an iPod DJ. (More on that later.)

A downside is that I can’t bring in any food of my own without extra fees, like chocolate covered strawberries. *pout* It’s okay though, I’m glad I found such an affordable place that supplies so much. Plus, no one has to get lost trying to find my reception!! I love it.

Here is a pic of it at night!! *pretty!!* How cool will it be to do our exit in front of this!?

In your opinion, do you think $3,500 for three hours is reasonsible for a reception site? Its an art museum with great views, a modern-upscale feel, and it can sit up to 200 people (my guest list is only 60). On the other hand, my fiancee’s aunt offered her 200 acre estate as a reception site…she suggested renting tents, chairs, and tables but we wouldn’t have to pay for a venue and we could use any vendors that we like 😉 However, this site if 45 minutes away so we would have to rent more transportation for the bridal party. What so you think?

Hi Nikki,

I think it may be a better deal to do the art museum, you would save major cash on decorations, and rentals. Plus you would be so surprised at how much you have to rent for a tent reception, lighting, heaters/air conditioners, chairs, silverware, plates, tables, and generators, etc. can add up. I would however, see that they put you in a space that doesn’t dwarf the size of your group. You don’t want the whole room to look empty! -Laura
