Trust your gut — put down the deposit!! You don’t want to miss out if the place books up fast, especially if it meets ALL of your criteria!

I know how you feel!  Especially when it comes to weddings and spending huge amounts of money, it can be hard to commit.  I agree with daydreamwanderer though — if it fits all of your criteria (which is pretty amazing!) and is within your price range, it’s probably a good idea to book it soon.  Especially if you’re in LA — wedding stuff gets booked up SO fast!  You’ll always find something worse, better, cheaper, more expensive, etc. if you have endless amounts of time.  But go with your gut and don’t overthink it!  Your wedding will be spectacular no matter what!

If you already found something that meets all of your requirements and is less expensive than the other places you haven’t seen yet, what exactly is the dilemma? 🙂 Put down your deposit, and don’t look anywhere else. Just stop yourself, or your wedding planning is going to give you ulcers.

Oracle, after a mess with our original venue my FI and I booked something else that really wasn’t what I had pictured either.  But after giving myself some time to get used to the idea of the new place and lettings things “simmer” I am COMPLETELY in love with our new venue!!  I like it even more than what I had originally envisioned for our wedding, and it’s opened up so many other possibilities that I wouldn’t have had with the first one (s’mores buffet, for example!).  It’s hard when reality clashes with what we’ve been envisioning, but it sounds like your venue has a lot of what you’re looking for.  Good luck with the date!
