Ugh I hear ya! I'm so so so thankful to have a 2014 date as well - I'm buying a new truck next week, looking at a house, etc etc as well. I wouldn't be able to do a 2013 date without ending up in a straightjacket.

we're getting married in september - courthouse wedding, coffee and lunch after, 12 guests = perfect for us. my bff is flying in from chicago tomorrow and we're spending a long weekend dress shopping. i'm so excited and SOOOO happy that both ryan and i don't want a big wedding or any of that. you put the word "wedding" onto something and all of a sudden things cost 10x's as much. ridiculous!

I am at a loss as to what to look for in a venue. Is there a magical list of things I should be looking for and asking about? What are some of the little minor things I should take into consideration when choosing a reception venue?
I need more info about what you are looking for before I can offer advise. Small, large? Outside vendors, inhouse? Dance floor? Outdoor, indoor etc etc.

Ours was simple, beautiful, and full of nature - we had less than 100 guests, married in our little country church, and the reception was held outdoors, but under a huge stone pavilion on a lake in a County Park. The food was simple and delicious, the guests were happy, comfortable, and could roam the lovely grounds as they wished. We had a disc jockey who tactfully knew what we wanted and did a good job with the bouquet toss/bride and groom dance, etc... It was very beautiful, and only about 5 hrs long total. July 7 12 yrs ago, and just like yesterday. Our friends still say it was the nicest wedding they had ever been to. Oh, I must add...... there were 2 Mounted Park Rangers who rode over briefly as we ate, and that was, of course, a lovely bonus :)

Inside, about 100 - 150 people. Dance floor, room for sit down meal, must have a bar... umm I would love if they did catering but I am open to bringing in an outside caterer. I have my own dj.

See these are the things I need to know to think about lol.

Do you see yourself in a golf club, or fire house? Does it need to be pretty?

I am thinking that some kind of golf club/country club sounds like it would fit with what you want.

For me, I wanted to feel like I was in a fancy living room, so I got married in a very old B&B, in their front room.

Congratulations, crimsonsky! What a stellar day!!! I couldn't wait until the last fitting and bring mine home, hang it up in my room, and dream about our big day aproaching! I'll never forget the look of adoration on my husband's face as I walked up the aisle when he finally got to see it - so excited for you! :)
