This weekend SO and I are having brunch at the venue that I’ve obsessed over forever! I’m so thrilled to be able to go see it in person, take a little peek at everything (I’ll be snapping pictures of everything down to the bathroom..haha!). I’m also a bit nervous that it won’t be as nice as I’m expecting! I’m one of those people that once they have their heart set on something, I get pretty disappointed if it doesn’t live up. Just trying not to think about it too much!
Any of you go for a sneak peek at places you’ve liked?

@FutureMrsDM: I’m a virtual stalker of my ideal venues. I was thrilled (and jealous) when my cousin sent me her wedding invitation and her venue was one of the top on my list. Boy am I glad I got to attend a wedding there. I wasn’t as impressed as I thought I would be! Also, the photographer I want has taken photos at some other dream venues and I flip through those all the time. Le sigh. And the Pinterest board grows.

@MissRuthie: Oh…I think virtual stalking is my speciality, so I’m really glad there’s a term the applies to it. I’m on every mailing list, following on every type of social media, and have scoured endless sites to find actual photos from weddings at them all.
I think I would be absolutely pissed to get an invitation to one of my top venues, but you make a good point, it is a great way to see what it’s really like beyond reading reviews and taking a tour!
