- Wedding: October 2015
How was your experience at the last wedding you went to? Whose wedding was it? What were some things you liked? What were some things you didn’t like? Did they have a theme/What were the decorations like? Were there any favors? Menu? Color scheme? Etc.
Just a fun discussion for a boring Wednesday night (on my end). I’ll get started:
Whose wedding was it: FI’s cousin’s wedding
What were some things you liked: It was held at the wedding venue we will be using in October and I was itching to see a wedding there for over a year. I loved that I got to see what their rain plan was, which I actually really like (a bit more than the traditional wedding spot). I loved seeing what a similar theme would look like, too, and how I am going to need to decorate the space to really make it pop.
What were some things you didn’t like: The wedding was held on a Thursday night and I couldn’t take the day off, meaning I had to book it from my office home, jump in the shower, and then book it 45-minutes to the wedding venue. Not to mention poor Fiance had to work at 4:00 a.m. the next day and the wedding didn’t start until 8:00 p.m., so he was really, really tired by the end of it. Besides that, the food was kind of bleh. They went with the caterer we had initially chosen and went with the exact same package…and I am SO GLAD we changed our minds. The food was just not good.
Did they have a theme/Color scheme: They had a vintage theme, which I quite liked because it seemed pretty similar to what I was going for. I got to see how it looked in the space and how to pull it off. They decorated it really nice with bunting made out of vintage sheets and fabric and lace and burlap–it was really pretty! Their colors were mint, yellow, and turquoise, so it was really, really pretty!
Favors: They had mason jars with our names on them
Menu: They had BBQ and desserts, but it was all just kind of blah. Nothing to write home about.
