- Wedding: July 2014
HI everyone who cares to read this!! so, this is my first official post (just want to throw that out there incase it starts turning into something super off topic & random lol) …
I have some SERIOUS indecision on where were going to have the ceremony site. My fiance has basically said he doesnt care at this point.
My whole life, I’ve pretty much dreamed about a church wedding. I’m a Catholic (converted about 5 years ago) and have always thought that when the big day does happen it would be in that church because I love the priest, and what not. W E L L… when I finally got engaged I called the church wedding coordinator to set up the arrangements & get everything in the works & when she asked my address I ‘accidently’ gave her my real address (we do live together, but normally I always just automatically give my mom’s address… I do not know what spurred me to give my real address… I guess I forgot LOL) so then when she asked my Fiance’s addy I gave her the same address. And then there was just DEAD silence. Finally she said “OH. Well, in that case Monsigner So-and-so will have to do the wedding, Because Father does not marry couples living together”
I was SO disappointed when I heard that. Then I started looking around at alternate venues. I was going to get married at one of the row clubs here in San Diego & it was going to be a beach wedding (my friend was a member there at one time so I was going to get a bit of a hookup, but then that fell through), And now I have been waffeling between the St Francis Chapel here in San Diego, it is SO Beautiful – heres the link: http://www.museumofman.org/saint-francis-chapel AND it’s right in balboa park where we’ll be having the reception… B U T it’s expensive (1200 as opposed to 150 at the church), and only holds 100 people max (as opposed to the church which is big, and we wouldn’t have any limits) … on the other hand the attendance limit is kind of nice because my finance & I are financialy sorta struggling and also paying for everything ourselves so it forces us to say ‘sorry no room’ without it just looking like were plain old poor lol
i just dont know what to do… I need to really nail this down.. it’s only 9 months away & i’m kinda freeking… My fiance actually really likes the chapel and wants me to stop looking at other ceremony options because he feels that I will otherwise just keep looking forever & never make a decision/be happy.
any advise, thoughts, whatever, would be welcome…
