I just got engaged on valentine's day and planning a wedding for April 2013, so I was thinking, whew! I have a whole year to make all these decisions!
. . . turns out I'm already finding that so many venues are booked for next spring! I've been crushed
about how horribly expensive everywhere is and how they micromanage all your decisions!
My mom and I looked at the 1st venue that fit the budget ($2,000 and under) and it was fine, they're really flexible and lots of stuff like tables and linens are included. . . but I got home last night and just started crying because I feel like this is my only option and while it's nice, it's nothing like what my fiance and I imagined.
I'm not asking to ride in on a freaking unicorn and have michelle obama pour my drinks here people! Just to have a pretty place that will let us do things our way. If anyone has any scoop on venues in upstate SC or maybe even the Asheville area, let me know because I feel like cancelling the whole thing right now!
