- Wedding: July 2011
So here’s the (slightly complicated, slightly long) deal…. bear with me!!
My fiance and I got engaged a little over a month ago. It was a total suprise, seriously I had NO clue!!!! (Not that there’s anything wrong with them), but I’m not one of those girls that has dreamed about their wedding since they were a little girl.
The first month of planning has been a whirlwin of fun! Researching and reading blogs, magazines, stalking photographers websites and trying to plan a wedding from afar. My fiance and I are living and going to school in Texas but planning the wedding to be in NJ (my homestate), hes from VT.
Anyways we started by looking at very “typical” venues. We fell in love with a place in northern NJ and I started emailing back and forth with the event planner there. After a series of emails negoting price and customizing the package to better fit us… just when we were about to sign the contract, we’ve gotten coldish feet.
We are now looking a very different venue locations (barns, lodges, b&bs, parks, aquariums, zoos, etc!) and that feels a lot more like us. Well thats another post.
So the question….We are not set on NOT using the first venue but I want to keep the lines open. But I dont know what to write in the email. Any tips! Thanks guys!!!!
