@nattiejeanne:  right?! That’s part of why we decided against food all together.mtight budget, but I also just don’t really feel like dealing with any of it, lol! Horrible bride here! I just want to be relaxed on my wedding day, well, as relaxed as I can be! I just bought my dress on Thursday! So exciing….it’s WAY more traditional than I was planning, but will still totally work! 

Are you wearing a bridal gown, having your groom dress up, and having a bridal party? We went no bridal party and I’m hoping my fiancé will be in jeans and a nice shirt. I want him to be comfy! I think I will be able to get my look more laid back with my hair and make up and then we will look good together even with him in jeans!

I’m getting married in a state park, but in their lodge’s ballroom. Haha. If we had waited until summer 2015, we probably would have done the campsite thing, too. When we were looking for a camping-esque place to get married, we looked into church retreat centers. They’re usually pretty reasonably priced and have accomodations for people.

It sounds like your wedding is going to be AWESOME!

@nattiejeanne:  Yeah, the backwoods/primitive camping sounds like it would have some logistical issues. My dad and Future In-Laws would love the backwoods camping atmosphere, but my mother would flip!

My wedding’s going to be a little more of a “big fancy” wedding than I had originally thought, but we wanted to get married in December, so there’s no counting on the weather (could be 65, could be 15). I’m feeling a little jealous of your laid-back picnic wedding!

@nattiejeanne:  For sure! You can’t have city-slickers going without their indoor plumbing!

@nattiejeanne:  I was looking into this for awhile but unfortunately it just was not what Fiance wanted so we decided to go in a different route. I cant wait to see your recap though 😀

I hear you on the offices being closed in the winter.  (We got married in a park, but lost out on the pavillion we wanted because of the being closed in the winter thing too-boring story, just saying).

Are there websites that could give you a heads up on policy?  I’m sure you have been googling your brains out now that you have an idea of what you’d like.  The only advice I can give you is to think about logistics too.  Seating-do you have to rent chairs, shelter-do you have to rent a tent, stuff like that.  Mostly, just don’t stress about it.  Have fun with your planning, but remember that Ma Nature can be mean, so make sure there’s an alternative if that happens.  If you do need a tent, sometimes groups like the Lion’s Club or something similar will have large tents.  Always worth a call to see if they’d rent it to you cheaper than a rental store.

I hope it all works out exactly like what you want!
