    I have not a clue about Socal, but I feel your pain. We needed to find a venue that allowed us to bring in our own caterer (top of the list priority for us) and had a bit of a rustic feel. It took me FOREVER to find a place. Oh my gosh it was the worst part of the planning process. When we did find it, I was ecstatic and it worked out really well, but ugh, I would not go through that again! I hope your parents or Father-In-Law are able to find something for you.

    I am in the same HELL!! It sucks being a long distance bride. At least I could have gone to places after work here but no, it has to be when I schedule a flight. I’m getting sick of it all. I already did one whirlwind tour and another one coming up next month. Le sigh….

    Ugh every venue we visit just makes me feel like I’m getting a wedding in a box.. like I can’t make anything my own.. and it just frustrates me! and anything I do like I can’t really afford.. it all makes me want to scream..

    Venue shopping was the WORST. I found it horrible because we really wanted a unique venue and we had a pretty low budget… it took FOREVER to find a place we liked that we could afford.

    i breathed the hugest sigh of relief when we signed a contract with our venue. planning from afar makes it even harder since you have to cram a lot of venue shopping into a short amount of time. just know that it gets easier from here!

    I HATED IT WITH A PASSION!!!!!! Trying to find something in a reasonable location, with a nice place for a ceremony, nice place for reception, good food options, nearby hotels, and within our small budget was HELL. Hell.

    I’m still in the middle of picking a venue, but at this point I’m not enjoying it that much. Making a decision has been more difficult that I anticipated…

    I hate shopping around for things, but venue shopping for me was a piece of cake. I had very specific expectations about size, price, and location. We visited one place that fit the bill, and booked it right away!
