Hello everyone! I recently introduced myself in the "Introduce Yourself" thread, but I'll do it again here. My name is Sarah and my fiance and I got engaged on October 8, 2010. We are planning a December 31, 2011 wedding. I was excited to find a place to chat with other brides who are getting married at or around the same time. Plus, this board seems friendlier than some of the other community boards... people can be so mean when giving their opinions on things that it was keeping me away for awhile. Anyway, I am glad to have found this board and look forward to corresponding with all the other December '11 brideds on here as our big days approach!
The issue I'm dealing with currently (and am hoping to find some insight on here!) is finding a church for our ceremony. We live in a small, rural town, which, despite it's size has MANY MANY churches. FI and I would like to have a 4 or 5pm ceremony since our reception is starting later and going on til midnight. What I'm running into is many of these churches have Saturday evening services and would not be able to accomodate our time. Also, some churches that don't normally have Sat. evening services are having a New Year's Eve service, around the same time we wanted to hold our ceremony. The reception site is a hotel ballroom. Our coordinator there has already told us we can use one of the other ballrooms as a ceremony site if we need to. FI is all about this, but I would really like to be married in a church. Has anyone else with a NYE wedding date (or just anyone in general) run into this problem? I would appreciate all comments and suggestions! Thanks!
December 2011 September Siggy Challenge-SHOES!
