VENUE. Without a doubt, venue. We still have yet to pick one and we’ve been engaged since November. :/ And it’s not for lack of trying either. We just want one with a very specific vibe (something that isn’t the norm around here, which the norm is this southern plantation feel). We are having a Cinco de Mayo wedding – that doesn’t really “go” with the big white house with the wrap-around porch. The other problem is probably budget. While it isn’t the most limited budget, I don’t want to spend too much trying to FIND this elusive venue. Lol.

 Linens, Tables, and Chairs for the 300 people at our outdoor wedding! This stuff is charged for by the piece and it’s making me CRAZY to spend over $1/ea for hideous ugly standard brown folding chairs…ugh!!!

@CatyLady: I second @The Average Bride, barn weddings are so romantic! You should be excited ๐Ÿ™‚

Oh, and this post gives me anxiety of the nightmares to come! Why does a chair cover and sash cost the same as a whole chair? And guest list…I don’t even want to go there ๐Ÿ™‚

My sister had her wedding there!!! It was such a beautiful day! You are so lucky! I’d never been to Worcestershire before that day but now (even though I’m still waiting!) I model my ideal venue on that!

Lucky lucky!

So far for me it’s got to be dealing with friend’s reactions to our family-only wedding, and finding an officiant… they kind of go hand in hand too because I know plenty of people who could do it for free, but they are friends, and we decided not to have ANY friends involved whatsoever so that other friends wouldn’t get mad at us for not invloving them too…. so now we have to pay AND find a good one. For some reason, it’s been my least favorite wedding task ๐Ÿ™

The guest list was pretty stressful. Also, finding a DJ when Fiance had zero interest in meeting with potential candidates.

@pink.sequins: and @WaitingweddingBE: Thanks for kind comments.

And @WaitingweddingBE: No, wow, what a coincidence, small world. That’s good to know, that you’re modelling your ideal venue on that, i’m more excited now. Going to other people’s weddings can be useful for your own research ๐Ÿ˜‰

We have had a couple minor headaches, and they mostly have to do with family. We both have large families, so the guest list gives me headaches since I wanted a smaller wedding that we can get away with. Then the day of the week that we have the wedding was an issue, since we wanted to do a Friday or Sunday wedding because it is SO much more affordable, but then people were trying to guilt me into a Saturday weekend because so many relatives are out of town (I did not cave on that one, I figure that the people who really care about me will come no matter what day it is). And the last one was my grandparents are super Catholic and were not pleased that I am not getting married in the Church, but I want an outdoor ceremony, and my Fiance is not even Catholic.

So pretty much…big families make wedding planning a pain!

FH’s family has specific religious things that have effected the food/drink/favors/music, so trying to accomodate them has been a bit trying.

@The Average Bride:  We haven’t decided on a venue yet, but I’m looking for nothern Va, or eastern MD, since it is in the middle of everyone, about 3h from my family and 3h from his.
