- Wedding: June 2013
So instead of posting a long, dramatic story about how this all went down, I’ll just say we are 6 months out from the wedding and yesterday we ended up switching venues, nearly doubling our budget and losing deposits on both the caterer and old venue.
BUT….I’m soooo okay with it. Our old venue was a pretty cool rustic, barn type building that I did like but mostly went with it because we didn’t have any other options (we live in a VERY rural area and there is literally one venue that can hold 300 people in the town our ceremony is in and one venue in the town a mile away and both were booked). Our NEW venue is in a super popular resort town about half an hour (just accross the border) from our ceremony and I am so excited. We will actually be having good food, won’t have to do any of the setup (except for showing them where we want things to go) and don’t have to worry about running out of room as the room we’re in can hold up to 500 people. Yay!! The price is a LOT more but my Mom has offered to make up the difference because she wants us to have an amazing wedding and wants our guests to have good food in a nice place.
And, I’d just like to point out that all of this went down in the course of one day. A day that just happened to be the 10 year anniversary of my Dad’s death. He’s definitely got a hand in making sure we have the best day we possibly can.
Sorry this got kind of long, I’m super excited though. 🙂
