- Wedding: December 2018
FI and I got engaged last month and have been looking at venues even before we made it “official”. Last year I stumbled upon this castle about 4 hours away from where we live. I took one look at it and just knew that’s where I wanted to get married!! We’ve looked at other places and while they’re nice, they don’t compare. I mean, come on, it’s a CASTLE! lol.
We’d prefer a smaller, intimate wedding (mom wants to inviite everyone she knows and tells me I need to invite my coworkers…ugh, no. lol) so this place is perfect. It’s a semi destination wedding so a lot of people we know won’t come. All those pepople my mom wants to invite…now I don’t feel bad inviting them because I know they won’t show up! Problem solved. lol. We are so excited to get married and be united as one. We don’t want a huge production and just want to share our special day with select people we love in a beautiful setting. I am so excited bc my mother has basically ruined wedding planning for my FI and I and now we have taken control and are doing what we want to do!
Any Northern MI brides out there? Where’s a good place to get hair/makeup done? Bakery? How chilly is it in October? It is going to be an outdoor wedding, though our ceremony won’t be long.
