- Wedding: May 2016
Oh man, what you guys say about the planning early stuff… I spoke to my reception venue and ceremony venue back in like… September/October. The reception venue let me pay in full and book right then and there (minus catering of course)… but the ceremony venue said “ok”… so I was like “soooo can I pay now?” and they were like “naaahhhh… call back in December to confirm stuff”. So I called back in December and left a voicemail… They called me back all panicked because apparently they didn’t write it down at all and the guy who usually marries people at that church has his vacation booked for our wedding week! So some other guy is doing it now… and even then I was like “ok so how about money and the recital and stuff” and they were like “ehhh… call back in March”…
I don’t know if that’s specifically because of me being younger though, pretty sure it’s just how they operate. Most people around here don’t do a lot of planning and don’t contact the churches until like 2 months before the wedding.
When I was trying on dresses though, a lot of places seemed to try to tell me that what I wanted (colour, style, even size!) was wrong… nope, pretty sure I have about 24 more years of experience with how clothes fit on my body than you do, thanks…
In the end (with the exception of the pretty pretty church) I’ve just made a point of going with the vendors that are willing to work with you and help you out, even if it costs a little more.
