Hi bees, I really need some support. I feel very depressed and stressed out over my upcoming wedding. I HATE, HATE, HATE my venue. SO and I were stupid enough to choose the first and only venue we checked out. Now, I hate it. Its so bad, to the point where I just want to cancel the wedding. We both have a few family members getting married around the same time as we are and they all have choosen these beautiful and fancy venues. Ours looks so cheap and old compared to theirs. At this point, I just feel like my wedding is going to be ugly. I know I am probably just overreacting but I couldnt even sleep last night. I’ve tried calling a few places to see if I can get another venue but everything is booked! I just want to cry!
What bothers me the most is that the only reason why we chose that venue, is because my mom wanted it. And now, all she can do is blame me for choosing the venue. And keeps telling me “you shoul’ve chosen something else”. When it was her that convinced me to get it.
Anyone choose a venue they did not like?

@bussy2bee: I’m sorry you’re feeling that way
Personally, I feel like you can make ANY space look awesome. It just depends what you put in it! Do you have any pictures of the venue & your decorative plans? I’m sure we could offer some encouragement 🙂

I second what @les105 said.
Any venue can be beautiful with the right decor. Someone I know had an outdoor wedding planned when Hurricane Irene hit last summer. They had to move it indoors on the day of and the only place that was available was the high school gym!!! I am from the NYC area, and have been to some pretty fancy weddings, and this was still lovely, despite the location, because of the flowers, candles, linens, and personal touches.
What is it that you don’t like about your venue?

Thanks Ladies. I just hate how it is old and ugly! I feel like we will have to put so much money towards making it look nice.
I guess the problem is not even the place we choose but me trying to “please” people. I dont even care if I get married under a bridge, aslong as it is with the person I love. But I hate all of the negative comments I’m receiving. And I just can’t stand my mom giving me a hard time about it. I’m at a breaking point. I dont even want to get married. I am the kind of person who takes negative comments to heart. All those negative comments have only made me believe I will have an ugly wedding. And I am tired of my family members (the ones who are also getting married) just rubbing in how in love they are with their venue, and how fancy and elegant everything will be, and blah blah blah.
