- Wedding: May 2014
…but it turns out I found an even better place!!
I was planning on having our May wedding outdoors at a waterfront gazebo. When I called last year and inquired about renting the site, they told me I couldn’t reserve the gazebo until the first of January.
So first this morning I got on the phone to reserve it and the lady said it was already booked for the entire weekend. WHAT?! How does that even happen. I called at 8:00 a.m. sharp! The only thing I can think of is the city had it marked off for an event of some sort.
I started getting really upset because I already have the reception site booked that is literally 30 seconds from the gazebo. I started back at square one and I was sure most places were going to have our date booked since it’s only 5 months away.
The first place I called was a country club/golf plantation in my hometown. It is so nice and I called there first thinking I was just going to hear bad news. WRONG!
They not only have my date open, but the guy gave me a “ballpark” price quote at only $1,000! And this includes everything…all we have to do is show up!!
I can’t believe it. I am going tomorrow at 12:30 to take a look around and get everything in writing and the final price worked out. What started out to be an awful morning turned into a wonderful afternoon! I am so happy!
I’m also hoping I can get my deposit back at our first reception site, but I don’t know if we can. Do you bees have any experience getting a deposit back?
