Is it silly to want to go with the only place I've seen just to be done with it?
My SO would like to get married in his home church, and he believes we can use the attached church hall. We haven't spoken to the minister yet, but his family is pretty active in that church.
If we find out we can use it, on an acceptable date, would it be crazy to just stop looking?
My mom is adamantly against a "church basement" wedding (it's a big open room, not underground!), but I just don't want to start shopping golf courses and get sucked into a fancier wedding than we want because I'm sure they will be prettier! I almost don't want to know what else is out there. Mom is insisting on paying, but I would like for us to do it on our own, so the budget is undetermined.
But if we have to bring in a caterer anyway (maybe), would the price difference even be a lot in your experience?
How long did it take you to find a venue?
And does anyone do a church hall anymore??
BTW, this is a suburb/small town in a not great area, and it's not local for me or my family, so there will be time constraints shopping around.
