Apologies in advance that this is a RANT.
$3,000 in the hole with my FI because this couple had a destination wedding. Next, we are invited to their AHR which includes a bad DJ, bad appetizers, and cash bar.
A reception is supposed to be a thank-you to your guests. Instead this reception turned into a dreadful way for the bride and groom to make more money. Cardbox was all set up when we first walked in.
