I haven't posted here before, so let me do a quick intro.
My name is Donna. Have been engaged for awhile, but have just recently started trying to pick out our wedding plans.
When it has come to making some sort of definite wedding plan, I have been all over the place. I've wanted a winter wedding at home, then I wanted a beach wedding in the Bahamas, then it was a spring wedding back at home, to a beach wedding in the Outer Banks...I think you get the picture.
Well, just recently, I've decided that I am without a doubt a BEACH BRIDE, but I want to be able to have most of our family and friends with us on our big day. So that's where I am now. I'm working on trying to find a venue for our wedding and have a question.
Having looked all over the internet, nothing about OC flatters me to have our wedding. I don't want a hotel reception, I want a nice, decent priced venue. I want a water front ceremony and basically have my dinner plan picked out...it's just about finding the caterer/venue that can make it happen.
Thru all of my research, no venue has really struck me as...I have to look here, except for one...still waiting to hear about prices...and that place is Herrington On The Bay! My only predicament about saying yes (again, depending on prices) is that this is the location that my brother and his wife were married at. Is it tacky to use the same venue. SIDENOTE: Our ceremony would be at the same part of Herrington that their wedding was, but instead of using the tented ballroom they have and used for their reception, I would use one of the rooms at their yacht club house onsite for our reception. This would change it up somewhat.
Still, is this too tacky?
Sorry so long and thanks in advance for your responses!!
