- Wedding: September 2013
HI Everyone, it’s a very exciting time for me, we went to look at a venue we really wanted yesterday, its an hour outside of Toronto, a beautiful little restaurant surrounded by a gorgous garden which is perfect for pictures. We want to have an outside ceremony and the reception in the restaurant. I am posting some pictures of the venue 🙂
I have a really tight budget $6,000 for everything! we were thinking about having a 30 people wedding but we were informed they would not close the restaurant for less than 40 people, so its 40 which takes the cost up from $1800 to $2400, still pretty reasonable, it includes the use of the venue, taking pictures etc.. and food. (drinks will be extra).
Got another piece of good news today, I wasn’t expecting either one of my parents to contribute financially as my dad is unemployed and my mom has never been supportive of our relationship due to the age gap, but today I got a call from her and she insisted she wants to cover the cost of the venue!!! That really helps and I am so happy that she is on board 🙂
