- Wedding: November 2010
I need your help ladies and to tell you what I need help with I need to tell you the full story, so bear with me. I am a wedding coordinator for a living. I am getting married myself on November 5th, 2010. I got hooked up with a gorgeous venue for an insanely amazing price. But it is a Community Center (like a YMCA type thing) but it has a GORGEOUS ballroom. There is a huge lawn/backyard space that we were planning to use for our ceremony & cocktail hour. So last Thursday I got a call that they are apparently putting in shuffle board on one side of the lawn and a putting green on the other side of the lawn. Supposedly there is still space in the middle of the lawn to do the ceremony…. I have not personally seen the space yet. At first I was pissed and slightly bridezilla. Now that I am calm I have an idea (as any good wedding planner does)…….
what about incooperating the shuffle board and putting green into our cocktail hour & pictures. My FH and his brother (BM) and best friend (GM) are avid golf players. How cute would it be taking pictures of them in tuxes on a putting green?!?! We could set up some sort of putting competition and shuffle board competition – not sure on “prizes” if that’s too cheesy or not….
So hive, I need your opinion. If you were me, what would you do, how would you do it??? My invitations have gone out, so I can’t change the venue and getting pissed off isn’t worth the energy. So how do I make this work in my favor???
