- Wedding: January 2014
We’ve had our venues booked for several months – the wedding is in January. The plan was to have a 2pm ceremony at a gorgeous chapel we found and then have a 6pm reception at a ballroom, with pictures in between.
We just found out there was a fire at the chapel and we are not going to be able to have our ceremony there now. Our officiant has a backup church, so its not a great location. We have a lot of out-of-town guests (my finance is from out of state) and they would be driving all over the city between the hotel, ceremony and reception site. We chose the venues we did because they are close together, close to the hotel and within our budget. There are a lot of different places to get married where we live, most are out of our price range.
I’m just at a loss right now. We were planning on ordering invitations in the next 2 weeks – so glad I hadn’t done that yet. We were talking about doing the ceremony and reception at the ballroom, but still trying to figure out the logistics. We can have the ballroom for however much extra time we want that day, its just a matter of paying a little extra. If we did that, we would want to start a little later and do the reception right after, which doesn’t work with our officiant, he does a mass at 4:30. And it seems a tad silly to have the big gap in between if both are in the same location.
