I swear I have covered every venue option in the state of Alabama… and still, nothing. This one is too much money, this doesn’t include anything and still is too much, this doesn’t allow alcohol, this is too far, so on and so on…It’s never ending, I swear.
So I decided if I could do nothing else… the least I could do is put this info out for every other Alabama Bride. (Some of the information may be inaccurate, but for what I can gather, this is all accurate to the best of my ability.)
