- Wedding: June 2012
I just wanted to share how excited I am that my FH and I have found our venue!! I wrote a while back about the Vandiver Inn, and we had the chance to visit a few weeks ago and fell in love. My man, however, wanted to see more places before we committed, which I absolutely agreed to. I had a better sense than he did about average pricing, what is included, etc, since I was doing all of the preliminary research and phone calls, but still thought it would be good to feel out a couple different places and people.
We went on vacation to upstate NY last week to visit his parents, and checked out a venue while we were up there. It was very similar to the Vandiver in terms of what was included in the package price, and had some bonus things such as a gorgeous landscape and grounds that the Vandiver simply doesn’t have. However, after looking around and comparing pricing, location, and coordinator.. it made us ultimately feel better about the Vandiver Inn. And that pretty much sold us.. only 2 appointments to see venues and we were done. And here I thought it would take forever!
Anyway.. we signed the contract and paid the deposit today. And even though we still have 2-ish years, I’m super excited!!
Anybody else choose their venue way in advance??
