- Wedding: June 2013
My husband and I got married at the courthouse for $50 in AL when he was there for school for the military. We couldn’t afford to do a nice wedding and weren’t sure if we had the time. So now we have been married for almost 5 years and are finally in a position to do something nice to celebrate our marriage. My husband will be adopting my 9 year old son and we want to incorporate that into our ceremony. We would like everything to be very classy and nice and maybe even a little more elegant than a normal vow renewal since we never got a wedding. I want to make all our decoratios myself cause im crafty like that lol. However, I’ve been trying to find a place to do the ceremony and reception at in the Houston or Galveston area. We live right next to Ft Hood so we will be traveling a few hours to get there so I’ve been looking at places online. A lot of our guests will be coming from out of the state so we also need a place for them to stay. I first thought a hotel would be nice cause it would be a one stop shop, but I also wondered about renting a large condo on the beach in Galveston and doing everything there. Can anyone suggest anything they think may fit our needs and budget? I know I didn’t exactly put a price on the budget, but let’s just say, most of the venues want like $4000 or more and I’d really like to go way lower than that. So if doing some of the stuff myself helps then I need a place to accomodate that. We DO want catering though. Sorry that was long. ha ha Thanks all!
