So I talked to Fiance today and we discussed the package we could get with the farm that my family once owned that is now owned by the county (working agricultural farm). $900 to rent, nothing, literally nothing provided. We would have to rent tables, chairs, port-a-potties (umm eww, this was on the site that they have them there, big turn off for me personally). On top of that catering, lighting, DJ, the whole “9 yards” basically. BUT, this was my dream place because it would mean alot to my great grandmother who was born on this farm, and I have dreamed of that being the place since day 1 of engagement.
Or, all inclusive at a local Mexican Restaurant that Fiance and I love. They host Fri and Sat night lounge and bar nights so there is an in house DJ. I wouldn’t have to rent anything like chairs and tables because that’s part of it. The food, alcohol and everything would come in a package. I am waiting for their package prices and info, but it seems less stressful and less expensive to just to it this way.
Either way will be great, but I am sad that I won’t have it on the family’s farm. I think I will atleast have my ceremony on the lawn because they have said I can have the ceremony there free of charge since I am a decendent of the original family.
I’m trying to work this out early so I can save, so help!! 🙂
