hes purchased the ring and we’ve discussed the basics…
We’d like to use a friend’s ranch for our ceremony and reception. I’ve looked into many, many details from insurance to rentals to permits and valet services. Once the ring is on, I’m crossing my fingers and asking for the big favor. I so hope they’ll say yes! I’m prepared to pay them if need be (would still be thousands cheaper than similar locations). Plus they’ve tossed the idea around about using their location to rent out for other events/photo shoots. As a marketing specialist and event planner I’m willing to be the “test subject” for this and prep the space for future stuff/let them use photos/etc.
ive also already thrown a smaller party (75 guests) on their property.
im curious to hear advice from brides who have used a friend’s property. Any issues? Bumps in the road? Unanticipateis problems or unwilling participants?
