cushionlove:  The venue is GORGEOUS! Just make sure you’re comfortable with all the terms in the contract and that they spelled out the costs. Otherwise that tent is to DIE for! It’s totally normal to have jitters – you are signing a lot of money.  But I would go for it if it seems like the ducks are lining up!

Well, the venue is the biggest decision that you make.  It influences the entire feel and budget of the wedding.  It sounds like you have really done your research and considering this over a period of weeks/months.  That sounds about right to me, at some point you do just need to make a decision and move forward.  All your rationale is sound and the venue is very nice.  Go for it.

It’s so pretty! The venue and grounds look wonderful. I know my mom would be jealous of your guests if she saw these pictures as she loves golf, haha. 

I totally get you, though. I was freaking out when I sent in our venue contract, which included our first deposit… of $8,000! Eek! My FI and I knew we wanted the venue no matter what (and sort of planned our date around it) but putting that much down was like signing over our souls. Even if, God forbid, we end up hating the place for some reason, there’s really no going back after committing that much.

I say, if you love it, go for it… Just so long as you’ve absolutely read everything in the contract and there’s nothing you’re unhappy with.
