- Wedding: March 2013
Hello March Twins!
I finally decided to join so I’m a total newbie! Last week we booked our venue, Winfrey Point at White Rock Lake in Dallas, TX. We had to settle for a March 29th date because when I found the venue online, I realized I need to act fast so I came to see it the next day. Fell in love, tried to call the next morning after but only to find the only Saturday left in Spring was taken I was so sad, but we tried to make the best of it. I never wanted a Friday wedding because I want people to have time to get to it and not have to take time off of work. We figured Good Friday would be a good time since many people are off for a 3-day weekend anyway.
We are strong Christians and do realize the significance of this day, however we do not celebrate this day as many devout Catholics do. Our families are perfectly ok with this date as well as our pastor. This does not denote our faith and love for Christ, we just see Easter Sunday as the day of significance. Our attendees who are Catholic are also on board with our day. (I’m very appreciative of our great friends and family!)
Now I’m just battling the hunt for finding a church that would let us use their sanctuary or chapel for that date If there is not one, I would have to consider possibly doing an outside ceremony, but that is just too unpredictable in Texas weather.
I have my colors, style, decor, etc. all planned out which should leave me unstressed but… So many other things to think about!! Friday wedding, Good Friday, weather complications, etc! I just want to have a great event with friends and family having a great time!
