- Wedding: March 2013
Well, my fi seriously overestimated how many of his friends would make it to our destination wedding. he thought we’d have around 100, and we have 50 or so.
since our venues event room has an 80 person minimum for food and drink and a steep rental fee (4000 dollars!) we have decided to move our wedding to a private beach club instead, which has no rental fee and food is less expensive
it was our second choice venue so we’ve seen it in person, and even though we will lose a small deposit from the original venue the savings will be around 6k! wow.
it was incredible that the beach club was available at such short notice…but now the whole wedding vibe has changed!! instead of a uber fancy reception room with gourmet food…its literally on sand under a rustic thatched open air building. and its very much a blank canvas so i will need to rethink decoration plans
i now feel MUCH less stressed about money and the prospect of having to pay for people who arent coming…but stressed that we’re making a major decision 2 months before =S
god i really need someone just to tell me its all going to work out!
