We went to an appointment with an event rental store and I am dissapointed. I told the woman many of the things I wanted and it was all “no you cant do this because the venue is like this” or “You shouldn’t get this centerpiece because it will be in guests view”, etc etc.. When I say I want coloured uplighting I would much rather hear “I’m not sure about it but lets see what we can do” instead of “there are alot of windows so it will be too bright”. Or if I say I want an overlay on a table, give me a friggen overlay I dont care if half of the other tablecloth is covered.. THATS WHAT AN OVERLAY DOES!!
I know it sounds super cliche but I am the bride, can you just do what I want please?!
End rant. 🙂

You’re right and every venue should be open to things like overlays and uplighting. Perhaps this is not the place for you, if you are going to have to deal with her :/

Hopefully you guys can work it out so you can get what you want. Because you’re right, you are the bride!

@mwitter80: Well our venue would be a great place to have uplighting but there are too many windows and it will be really bright since the sun doesnt set until late in the summer. But there are ways around it, what about a backdrop over some of them or something! I feel like she could have found ways to make what I want work.
