- Wedding: July 2013
Our venue (a golf club) offered to allow us to come in and see it set up for weddings. I got dates from the coordinator and today was the second time I went to stalk it!
This time my Fiance, my mother and Future Father-In-Law came along. It was the first time that my mother saw it and she loved it. (it is truly breathtaking…it’s a golf course looking over the lake in the city we live in…it was perfect)
My Future Father-In-Law actually does work with most golf courses in our area on legal/tax matters and this is one of his clients (not why we booked though). When we got there he talked to the person in charge and it turns out they are affiliated with the private golf club he belongs to.
So we checked out the wedding set up, showed my mother the amazing view. Then we went to have a drink on their gorgeous “members only” patio. (being affiliated with the other club they just transfer bills to them).
He now has also offered for us to go for dinner there whenever we want to to get to know the staff (schmoozing) on his tab. How nice is that?
My Fiance and I are paying for everything ourselves, so we REALLY appreciate these offers from his dad. AND we did not expect anything from him. (he is wealthy but we rarely see much monetarily from him, which is fine because it is his money and he can do what he wants with it).and personally , I LOVE the fact that we have worked our asses off for everything we have!
He is also going to see if he can get my Fiance and his wedding party a tee off time the morning of the wedding. (usually you have to be a member to play on the course).
I’m very happy and excited that he is helping us with certain things since we totally did not expect anything….:D I feel very spoiled and blessed right now.
