- Wedding: April 2011 - Oxon Hill Manor
I’m an engaged gal who is having a really hard time making decisions about her wedding… help me please!!
My fiance knows that I have a really hard time discerning whether i make a decision because it’s what I really want, or whether it’s because I think it’s what someone else wants. He’s been really, really patient with me and trying to help me figure out what it is that I want for our wedding.
Please note that there are two huge factors still undecided: A. The Budget and B. The Date. While we kind of have an idea of what the budget will be and although we’d really like to get married October 24, 2010 (which is the date as of now), we’re waiting for MY DAD to well, accept/endorse/agree to all of this.
Back to being indecisive… so we’ve done a lot of research, talked a lot, but we haven’t made many decisions. One of the ONLY decisions we have made is to get married at an aweseom venue, Oxon Hill Manor.
Here’s the thing — the venue is gigantic and we’ve been talking about significantly cutting down our guestlist to save on costs. I think it’s a little crazy to have a small wedding at such a big place. Also, it’s also an all-in-one venue where our ceremony will be in a garden outdoors (it’s beautiful with a great view), and the reception inside the actual manor. Problem is I’ve always wanted to get married in a church. One more thing, it’s pricey. We picked it, well, without realizing how much it really was.
SO … my question (I’m really long winded guys, sorry) is whether I’m crazy for want to switch up on the one and only decision we’ve made. I knwo we’ll need to see if we lose money cause thenI might just be stuck with ti, but I’m like reverting back to all the things (venue in particular) that I wanted at the very, very, very beginning… Back then I envisioned a church and a small reception at this great little historic home around the corner.
What do I do? Stick with what we’ve picked or start reversing our plans and go with the historic house? Just saying that I’m a bit remorseful about letting go of the manor. Is it silly to have a big venue for a small wedding (less than 100 people)?
