As a resident of Pittsburgh, I tend to focus on wedding venues here and in the wonderful city of Nashville (where I met the not-yet-fiance). Anyone can plan a wedding in a hotel ballroom, for a more unique approach in Pittsburgh try the Morning Glory Inn. Located conveniently within the city, the Morning Glory Inn, is a great way to give your wedding a homey personal feel without shuttling your guests outside of the city.
The garden courtyard allows for both an indoor and outdoor celebration which is a great safety net for unexpected weather. It also requires little decor to look absolutely perfect – add some tea candles and go! Adding to the convenience of the location, the Morning Glory Inn is available for the day of your wedding or the entire weekend. Book the whole weekend and you can do everything from host your rehearsal dinner to have a morning-after brunch with 30 of your guests. Another perk to hosting your wedding at a Bed and Breakfast? Out of town guests can stay overnight eliminating transportation all together! Room rates are quite reasonable meaning there is no reason to stay elsewhere. Just don’t go overboard with your guest list, capacity for the inn is 150 guests.
Pros: convenient location, voted ‘Best Wedding’ by The Knot four years in a row, indoor and outdoor space, only one event per day, flexibility with catering
Cons: capped guest list at 150
