Congratulations! You sound happy with the venue. I checked out the website – it truly looks gorgeous! I could use some of that Florida weather right now up here in NY 🙂 My wedding will be 6-30-12 at Mountainview Manor, http://www.mvmanor.com , definitely a different style than your venue! I did not have as lucky of  a find as you with finding my ideal venue. I actually fell in love with this venue a while ago but decided to look at things a little closer around home (within 30 minutes – my venue now is about an hour and 15 away). And I had been looking at venues for over 2 and a half months – I WAS JADED! But it’s funny how things work out sometimes, right? I just fell in love with it and knew as soon as I walked in that it was right! I was overcome with emotion as well – it’s a magical feeling when you just know it feels right!!

 

Have you been able to get your flowers and everything else down too? Everything will fall into place now! 🙂 So happy for you! What a relief, right?

Firstly, I am very jealous of your weather! I would take that weather over my gorgeous venue anyday if I had to choose – I absolutely hate the cold weather and I plan on moving down south somewhere when I get my Ph.D in a couple years.

Secondly, I agree with you about what could go wrong with a beach wedding! Too many factors could make your day subpar and it’s not worth it (besides, much better to enjoy that for the honeymoon!Tongue Out) And I never thought of people crashing it- you know people would photobomb your pictures if it were on a public beach! The venue you picked is really awesome – I think you made a fantastic choice!

 

In regards to the flowers, I think if you have some help, you definitely should consider doing your own, especially if it is something simple and elegant. Can you buy your flowers wholesale through like Publix or something? Sometimes they have wedding flower departments at grocery stores or wholesale places like BJs/Sams Club and it’s so much cheaper than going through an actual florist.

I think going to a bridal show is a great idea! I never got to go to one myself (they were always when I had class) and I think it’s worth the drive! It will be really helpful for you to get ideas for your flowers and also start thinking about things (and have ideas for down the road). PM me if you ever want to chat more! I’ll share my email with you!

Have a great weekend! 🙂

Sincerely,

Christina
