this morning at church i was informed by a friend (also the camp director of the camp that my future husband and i volunteer at) that the admin had double booked our wedding date at the camp.
we are renting the camp becasue it has a chapel or lovely outdoor areas to do the ceremony, and it has a dinning hall with a massive kitchen, tables, chairs, you name it its up there already! way more cost effective.
but now this has happened. i was bummed and ready to fight for our dates cause we booked it first. but then a thought crossed my mind and my fiances. Why not get married during camp? all the people we want at the wedding are already up there, food is being made we can just pay to have a little extra brought up, i can make my cake up there no problem, flowers can be stored, the more we thought about it the more we liked this idea. so we asked the camp directors wife about this (as she is also a director for that week) and she fell in love with the idea too. and said she would talk to her husband about it and convince him if need be 😉
so now we sit in limbo and wait to see if our plan b gets given the go ahead. if its a yes we are going to go with this option even if we can still have plan a. i’d rather see the camp make more money of rentals from a bigger group, we would have been a very tiny group going up for the original dates.
i hope it all works out :S
