- Wedding: August 2010
So I just found out yesterday that the spot where I was planning to have my ceremony has already been booked for another private event on the same day as my wedding! The good thing is that I have already officially booked the reception venue so now we just have to find another spot to do the ceremony. You would think on a huge lake there would be tons of places that are grassy and overlook the lake…but there isnt. SO the event coordinator said we could do the ceremony on the grass area right next to the reception venue but they require a tent and the tent (for 150 people) would cost $4000!!!!! INSANE! Not just that, but then we would be required to do our cocktail hour through them and they would be charging us almost as much for cocktail hour as they are for dinner. I didnt get upset about it (which is usually how I would react) but instead I just took action. Apparently there is another similar spot to our original location just a few minutes down the road. Ive never seen it, but the event coordinator said it looks very similar. I decided to pencil our name in so that no one else can book that place! FMIL is going to see the site this weekend and take pictures and tell me what she thinks. Im crossing my fingers!!! Please wish me luck!
