    If it meets your needs, fits your budget, and allows you to have the wedding you have always wanted, then that’s all you need to know. Looking at 10 other venues won’t change any of those factors.

    You said yourself, it is “everything I could have hoped for.”  GO FOR IT!

    I don’t think you crazy, if you know you know. I think it’s always good to have options and look around at other places price points to see if you can get a better deal. However it seems like you love this place so in that case I say go for it!

    Yup: if budget, capacity, and style are all checks, then do it. 

    Speaking from experience, it is SO MUCH EASIER to plan once the venue nailed down.

    If it has everything you want and is within budget, then go for it! As it was mentioned, once you have your venue booked, planning is easier. My vote is: Go for it!

    Book it!  My Fiance and I booked the venue without ever seeing it in person (I live in Los Angeles, and the venue is in Northern California)!  One of my bridesmaids was familiar with the venue because she’s a florist and has delivered flowers there a lot, and she told me it was beautiful.  I could see from pictures that it was.  I booked it without looking at anything else (sure I shopped around online).  I saw the venue this past weekend and it’s perfect!

    If you think it fits everything, book it!

    I only looked at one. It was lovely, in budget and then some, in a great location and the coordinator has been my rock of sanity in planning. No regrets.

    That said, do check the contract to see if there’s any required vendor nonsense. Ours is caterer and venue in one, and while that’s actually been great, I have had a smidge of remorse over not getting to even look at other catering options.

    We did the same thing! Years before being engaged I learned about a gorgeous music library on our university’s music conservatory’s campus, saw a picture online, and said “I have to get married there.” After getting engaged I didn’t even think about other places, we just made an appointment, saw it in person, FI’s jaw dropped, they could fit the amount of people we wanted and do ceremony and reception in the same place (which we wanted) and would have booked on the spot if the proper person had been there (booked a few days later via phone/fax). Why waste time? If it’s right, it’s right! So far we’ve booked almost all vendors the first one we’ve met. First venue, first florist, first caterer (venue had choice of two, but the first was nice, delicious, and able to make Turkish appetizers we required), first invitation person, the only things we did more of one of was met a second photographer (first had beautiful pix but wasn’t as comfortable with us and we did want to be natural with the photog) and we saw two bands but that’s only because they weren’t performing near us so we had appointments to see both in one night. Decided we wanted the one we wanted by their second song. The second we met with somebody, liked them/their work, and they said they were within our budget…why waste any more time wondering about other people? If we all compared things every second of every day, none of us would ever get married, we’d just worry constantly if there’s somebody better out there. Maybe there is…who cares! 🙂

    If you know what you like then looking at other venues will just be torture and at best give you doubt. If you can afford it then just go for it. Why stress about what isn’t..you have what is.

    @ShutterbugCait:  i think you should look around anyways what will it hurt?

    if this is the one for you then you will only ease your mind.

    i’m getting married in 2014 and the 3 dress i tried in my heart i feel is the one but

    its way too early to get it so I’ve tried on other gowns and was happy until i went

    to the bridal shop and they said hey we sold the dress i almost cried ; (

    the women was like no no don’t cry we can order it when your ready. but they discontinue

    wedding dresses every 6 months or so ; ( so in about October i’m going to get it and have them vacuum pack it for me ; ) even tho i looked and thought to my self this cant be the one Caz i haven’t looked around enough my heart knows that this is the dress for me.

    i hope this will help ease your mind ; )

    I only looked at one venue. If you love it and it fits your budget then its okay to only look at one place.

    @star_dust:  DUDE, agreed.


    (its the same with the dress if you haven’t already picked it out.)
