I have narrowed it down to two venues. However, it has come down to do I want the beautiful outdoor setting but with a buffet or a nice plated meal with less beautiful pictures? Grrr!
I have always wanted to get married outside in a gazebo and my first option has that. It is at a golf course which would yield beautiful wedding pictures. However, the plated meal (which is ALL the same food that is on the buffet) is $16 more per person. That is insane so I would have to go for the buffet at this venue. However, I do not like buffets at weddings. Standing in line, people caughing, sneezing on the food, most of the time it’s cold. Not a fan. Apptetizers are cheap and they have a great linen package.
Option two has a cute outdoor chapel. However, there isn’t really anywhere to take pictures besides the lobby. Which is pretty but how many different pictures can you really take? I guess we could take a limo during cocktail hour and take some pictures offsite. The plated meal is a couple bucks cheaper than the buffet at the other venue. A saturday wedding is $300 more than the other place, Hors d’oeuvres are more expensive, and this place does not include the sales tax and service charge in the price ($1800+!!!).
My question ladies is, would you suck it up and just have the buffet wedding? It is only food, but I don’t know!
