Overall

Hello, I’m Emily Inman. I was a very obsessive, detail-oriented bride. Here’s what I learned about Community Life Center, my ceremony & reception venue that provided bar, linens, lighting, and more. PROS: indoor and outdoor ceremony site with separate reception site, 9AM-11PM rental included, can decide if indoor or outdoor the day of, great execution of services on the day of the wedding CONS: confusing rhetoric bouncing between “we’re only a venue rental” and taking over tasks, great difficulty to communicate with if can not meet in person or communication styles differ, guest may be uncomfortable with the cemetery or the venue being owned by a funeral company.

Tips to Make Your Life Easier:
1. Get everything in writing
2. Have as many meetings as possible and prep for them creating lists of topics/questions

The Verdict: The Community Life Center gets a 3.5 for being a difficult to deal with vendor, the most stressful and flip-floppy of my vendors, and for pulling it together to get a great result on the day of the wedding. Unfortunately it is the only venue rental around Indy under $5,000 that can hold 150+ people and have the 3 needed sites. I DO NOT recommend this venue! If you are not the rare obsessive, compulsive planner, detail-oriented person willing to 1. meet in person anytime you need/want to talk or ask a question 2. spend countless hour talking to/thinking about how to talk to an easily stressed/ overwhelmed person 3. make long documents with every wedding detail on, then you are unprepared to behave in a way that will it easy to deal the Community Life Center! Save yourself the stress and pay more at another venue to save your sanity. Please think about if you can handle the stress before you consider this venue.

I hope this helps! I wish you the best of luck brides- and grooms-to-be, may planning not be stressful!
