We are in an LDR … we are getting married in his home town, where he is now. I’ve been there a couple of times but I have no idea about places to get married. I would LOVE a catholic church wedding, but he is not baptised,not catholic and divorced, the Decaon in the only catholic church in the small town he’s from, actually laughed on the phone, and said .. you have the TRI FECTA of dispensations. awesome.
So about five minutes ago… i said you need to narrow down to three places for us to have the reception .. if the church thing doesn’t work out in time, we will do the work we need to after. Just find a place to have the reception that’s not a bar.
Crossing my fingers hoping for the best … would you guys let your man pick the reeception place or am I totally nuts?

Yea! If he knows his home town well, why not?
If he is totally forgetful and does not care about the wedding, thats another thing. but I’m sure he wants to help you out and you are used to basing things on trust with the LDR!

I would totally trust my Darling Husband to narrow it down. I would be clear with him what you expect though like
Needs to seat # guests
Needs be within $ range
You would prefer a traditional ballroom/banquet hall/less traditional locale etc

@Eva Peron: nope he cares about things.. which was part of the problem cause seeing things online is different then seeing them in person.
@lefeymw … I hadn’t thought of some of those
he said he’s a bit nervous that i’ll flip out .. but I do trust him.. he’s more detailed oriented then me .. so we’ll see

You could also google “[his hometown] reception venues” and get a general idea of different places if your guy is anything like mine (ALL venues EVER look the same to him. A barn venue and a hotel venue? Can’t tell the difference, haha). Also, I hope you are able to get the dispensations you guys need! Best of luck in planning 🙂

@ranunculusdreams: oh i tried googling that .. and after seven pages of things for the biggest nearby town (i don’t want to get married in or near Disney) I don’t know which is good or not…
I said i’ll take care of getting the dispensations .. you take care of the reception. 😀 i’m not sure who’s getting off light lol
