So we’ve had our venue held for about three months now and today I received a call from the manager and she advised us that they are getting a lot of calls for April 2013! Basically, we have to commit and put our deposit down to officially reserve the date. OMG, this just got effin real! I was hoping to have a little more saved up so we didn’t clear out the wedding savings account right out of the shoot. We’ve been engaged for so long (about 16 months now) that it seemed like the heavy duty planning was so far off.
I know this is not a bad thing (in fact, I’m super excited now) but a bit shocked.
Ok, done with my rant. Thanks for listening!

Thank you for all the support. Well, I went to put my deposit down for April 7, 2013, a little disappointed that I had to choose a Sunday. Well the manager offered us Sunday May 26, 2013 at the off-peak rates. It is Memorial Day weekend, but now my guests can party down without worrying about work the next day. Yeah! I feel so blessed.

You will probably save a lot in other areas due to it being a sunday. We got our dj for 50% less than his saturday rates all becasue we are doing a sunday evening wedding!
