(I’m posting this in emotional, but I don’t think it quite fits in here.. oh well)
Right after I got engaged, I found a great venue. It’s inexpensive, and it looked nice in pictures. I haven’t been there, but my mom has and said it’s fairly nice. It isn’t booked yet, but I’ve been planning a sort of rustic vintage-feel wedding based on the venue decor. Turns out, the pictures are close to 5 years old and it apparently looks much different now! Add into that that there’s a pillar blocking the fireplace from most of the room (where we had thought of having the ceremony), and I really don’t want to go with this venue anymore.
The problem is, I’m from a small town, surrounded by small towns, and there are very few venues around here. The ones I’ve found are either much too expensive, don’t allow outside catering, are closed for the winter, or are very ugly. I have no idea what to do now. I do have some time to figure it out, my wedding is just over a year away, but I really wanted to have the venue figured out so I could plan my decor around it and start my DIY really early.
I don’t want to change my date to the summer to allow for more venue opportunities, the date we picked has a really special meaning to us. I have no idea what to do now! Ugh.
