- Wedding: July 2012
I loved the venue I picked. I just wanted a nice, simple picnic wedding that was fun for everyone…nothing fancy. With the help of my BFF we found the *perfect* spot, it was a huge and popular state park with everything I could have imagined and more!! I called today (the wedding is over a year away) for information about booking, and I’ve hit a wall. They don’t just let you book in advance, they do a lottery in Feb. for the entire year to decide who gets to rent which spot and when. So, basically, I have to wait until next year to enter the lottery and cross my fingers, and then scramble to do invites and everything else in the short amount of time between the lottery drawing and the wedding date, or I have to find an entirely new place.
I’ve already thought about just using a backyard, either my parents or my sisters, which are both beautiful…but there won’t be enough parking or bathrooms for the guests (I’m looking at a minimum of 125) and if it rains I’m completely effed. UGH…back to the beginning.
