I love weddings because it is such a beautiful thing to see these magical moments of love in which people come together to share in the excitement of a day that will eventually be cherished forever. But the reality is that weddings come with plenty of stress and pressure. The planning, decorating, and hosting of a wedding are usually the most stressful things that a bride and groom will ever experience.
There are over 500 wedding ceremonies in the United States each year, with most of them being held at the same place. But let’s face it, that’s not nearly enough venues to accommodate all of them. So how do you find the right venue for your dream wedding? You can do your research or you can do the planning yourself. We’ve both done the research, so we both have a pretty good idea of where we want to have our wedding.
One thing we know is that there are some couples that love to travel and plan their wedding out in advance. We’re not saying you can’t have a nice ceremony, but you can’t have the same wedding you had in January. Our wedding was in April, so we can’t have our wedding in July.
Well, in that case maybe we should have a smaller wedding. Maybe we should have a less extravagant one.
The reality is that wedding venues are more of a decision than a destination. There are a ton of options out there, but if a couple is looking to hold their wedding in a specific location, they should always make that a priority. So if you want a wedding in the middle of the city and need a hotel, that is the way to go.
The problem comes when you start to focus on only those options that you feel are a good option. It becomes, “oh, I am the only one who felt that option was a good option.” For us, it became, “I feel we are the only ones who feel that option is a good option.” That is where we end up with a lot of weddings that are in the suburbs, have a pool, and are a bit dated.
It all comes down to asking oneself, “Do I really want to spend this money?”. If you don’t, you are spending money you don’t actually have and you are also spending money that you don’t know where to get.
This is what happens when you have a wedding venue in the suburbs that is not in any kind of public good space. It becomes, I feel we are the only ones who feel that option is a good option. That is where we end up with a lot of weddings that are in the suburbs, have a pool, and are a bit dated. It all comes down to asking oneself, Do I really want to spend this money.
I think we have to stop talking about weddings and start talking about weddings that have pools and are dated, like ours. Because if you have a pool and are not at a venue, you are setting yourself up for disappointment. You are setting yourself up for disappointment if you are in a venue that has a pool and has a dated venue. The pool is going to be outdated. They will have different rules and procedures than the last couple weeks.
Yes. And the date is going to be outdated. When the guests are there, they will have to do all those things you are asking them to do. The venue is going to have their rules and procedures, and I really don’t know how many of them have pools.
