- Wedding: July 2010
This is just my little whine session. I just have to get it out somewhere and I don’t think crying like a baby at work is appropriate.
We had a meeting with our venue yesterday and it was a nightmare. We were planning on having our ceremony and reception at a beautiful 1921 heritage dairy farm. The ceremony was going to be in a field under a huge oak tree and the reception in the old barn. We were sooo excited about this venue and it fit our theme perfectly.
After our meeting yesterday we had a ton of concerns. We had initially planned on having a live band at the wedding but this fell through so we booked a DJ. Apparently at the venue bands are okay but DJ’s are not allowed. I am not having a wedding without dancing… it’s one of the things I’m looking most forward to. They also made a big stink about having to move all the junk out of the barn so we can have room for our tables and a dance floor. We’ve had this venue booked for like a year… did they think we wanted to set up our reception around a bunch of junk?
I’m just really upset. I am not paying a ton of money to have my wedding at this venue that won’t even let us do what we want. As such we’ve decided to have our wedding at my parent’s place. Now my parents are super stressed out about getting it cleaned up in the next three weeks so it is presentable for everyone. I just don’t want anyone to worry. I think it’s beautiful as is and don’t want my parents stressing out like crazy about fixing it up. I also now have to get a ton of decorations and lighting for the reception… ugh.
Sorry I just really needed to vent this. We should’ve aloped.
