I’ve been engaged for over 6 months, and still no idea what to do for the wedding, I need some serious help! I’m convinced I was born without the “bridal gene”. I’m extremely happy with every aspect of my life, except the fact that I have to plan a wedding. All I’m interested in is spending a weekend (preferably) or an evening with our friends and family to celebrate our life together. My fiancé and I are actually considering skipping the ceremony - we would leave for our honeymoon right after the party and get married on a beach, just the two of us.
Here are a few things important to us:
- Food! – we are big foodies (thank god for good genes!), I would like our guests to enjoy the meal. I always thought that if you go to a wedding where the food is terrible, that’s all people remember, not the dress or the decorations, just that they went home hungry, or worse.
- Location – we live on NY Metro area and would like to find a place within a 2 hour drive.
- Hotel accommodations – we would like to offer our guests the option of spending the night.
- Activities – ultimately, we would like to have a sort of local destination wedding. A place that offers activities for people to spend the weekend and enjoy themselves. Kid friendly, of course.
I’m sure there are many other things I haven’t mentioned that will need to be planned out. Right now, I’m trying to start off with a location, and not really sure where or how to begin searching. There are so many options, how do I figure out which is right for us? Does anyone have any ideas or suggestions?? Any help or advice would be much appreciated!
