@Boxerlover24:  Don’t compare yourself to your bro/sis. Good for them if they can afford a 80k wedding (ridic in my opinion). Take a step back, take a deep breath and ask yourself if this venue is what you and your fi want. Friday weddings are more and more popular. People will deal. 30 minutes isn’t really that far. If you said 3 hours I would think differently. 15 minutes from a hotel isn’t far either, that’s about what mine is and no one batted an eye! Block out the noise and really listen to your heart.

Sounds like there are a lot of cons. There are other venues out there you would love. Just hold on to what you have and keep looking around with an open mind.

@AirForceWife78:  +1!

 

Is the venue 30 minutes from the reception, or just 30 minutesd form where people live? I think if you’re providing a shuttle to/from the hotel, that’s totally fine. Not to mention, if it were just ten minutes from where people live, you still don’t want them driving home after drinking.

If it doesn’t feel right to you, then cancel it. But plan the wedding you want and can afford. This site is full of people that had family with opinions and promises of money, with out ever seeing a dime.

@Boxerlover24:  Can you show us some pics of the venue? I want to see what your parents thought was so awful. Do what you can afford. We’re pulling off a wedding for 200 people in California for under 10k. It can be done! And it’s still going to be classy and fun!

@Boxerlover24:  Sweetie dont feel the need to change, if you love it you love it … your dad offered bc he wanted you to know your not locked in that does not mean you have to change just b.c. u have the chance too? Right?

 

So think will you feel amazing getting amrried and having the party there? 

Are you confy with the price point?

You have a plan for the shuttle so its not far really anymore and people will have fun on the ride together you could even maybe add some kinda quirky fun game thing to do on the shuttle lol i dork 😛 but now really with a shuttle its not that far is it?

It’s on a friday,do you mind really?Like really? You will give ppl lots of time to know its a friday right, so they can make the plans they need to feel confy with e timing and the day so it will work right?

 

Its not on a saturday, deep down that dosn’t bother you does it? if not who cares 

 

Its in your price points and you love it you will have a great wedding, and if you dont love it and you just read that and asked your self all that stuff and still feel freaked out, your dad said he pay the diposit you would lose so you can leave so all the stress is now gone, so now you just need to think what you want

 

It will be beautiful where ever you go

@Boxerlover24:  Hahaha, no way, that venue is gorgeous! That was not what I was imagining. 

I agree with what @ieatunicorns: said, don’t count on their generosity when it comes time to actually get things done. Not to say their offer wasn’t very generous and kind.

@Boxerlover24:  Being a cop is scary work!  That’s hard too!  I think I was made to be a military wife. I’m more of a solitary person anyway…only child, not much family, functions well alone for long periods! FI is off right now for school in Alabama right before the wedding of all times! 😉
