- Wedding: May 2012
Hello Bees! I’m new to the boards as far as posting but I’ve been a lurker for a while. To be honest with you, I’m in WAY over my head with this. Fiance and I have been discussing everything regarding weddings, eloping, courthouse, etc. He’s fine with whatever. In his words, its not “every little boy’s dream to have a wedding so whatever you want is fine with me.” The only stipulation he’s put on it is he wants his brother to be there.
I know I want a wedding on the small-ish side and we both like the idea of getting married in NC (sentimental reasons) even though most of our families live in WV. I’ve narrowed it down to 3 options and want input on them, considering I’m getting a “thats fine, buttercream sounds nice” from the super unopinionated Fiance… *sigh*
1. Elizabethan Gardens, Monteo NC. I LOVE the idea of a garden and my dad’s side of the family usually vacations in that area so it wouldn’t be too difficult to get the family there. Its also right by the ocean, and we’re both very “ocean” people. Ceremony and reception both in the gardens, for ~100 people. Ceremony site, tent, and seats are all included but food, DJ, etc. would be extra stuff.
2. Queen’s Landing, Lake Norman NC on the Lady of the Lake. Its a cruising yacht that would include a wedding on a cove, then a 2.5 hour reception (food, DJ and open bar included) cruising along on the lake. Again, for ~100 people.
3. The county courthouse where we used to live near Charlotte. It would be an incredibly small wedding there, including my parents, his parents and his brother and sis-in-law. Then maybe a nice dinner for all of us somewhere in the city.
So…any input ladies? I’d love to hear it all! Thanks girls!
