Hi Bees! I’ve been a bad bee! It’s been months since my last post! But I’m back, and I have a dilemma (kinda).
Fiance and I found an amazing ceremony and reception venue and when we first booked it the cost definitely seemed feasible. However, due to Fiance being furloughed at work, and a few other financial setbacks, it’s now going to be tiiiiight. And on top of that, I’m just not sure I want to spend that kind of money on one day when we have the rest of our lives to be planning for.
So we’ve been (well, I’ve been) looking for alternate locations and it’s looking like renting a fire hall will be the most cost-effective solution.
I’ve gotten support and total understanding from all of my bridesmaids and any family I’ve talked to. (except for my Maid/Matron of Honor – it’s not that she’s NOT supporting me, but I think she is just worried that I’ll be disappointed if I don’t go “all out”)
So I guess my question is – are fire halls really that bad? Have any bees had fire hall receptions and regretted it? I mean, it’s just a location, right? Isn’t it what I do to the space and the people that fill the space that really make the party?
