Decisions, Decisions.

We checked out a few more wedding venues on Saturday, and after a 24-hour or so period of thinking, thinking, thinking, we have been able to narrow it down to two – wonderful – options. The place I thought I really wanted is off the list, primarily due to cost and logistics. I just don’t want anything overly complicated or too expensive. It doesn’t fit with my mantra of the whole day, which is simple, elegant, and fun. The venue itself would have been those things, but spending the money and getting there would have been stressful.

And stress is something I want to avoid as much as possible. For example, if we chose a venue at the top of our budget, and more people RSVPed than we projected, we would have been really stressed at the prospect of having to spend thousands of more dollars than we wanted. But if we choose a venue way under budget, and have no problems with the RSVP, we can upgrade the food or something else instead. We definitely prefer the latter option.

So I guess it wasn’t that difficult of a decision, once I got past the feeling that I should have wanted that venue. But now we’re down to two, as I said wonderful, options, and it will come to down to price. One is a great deal, and the other is a little classier, but also a little pricier.

Once this decision is made and coordinated with the church, I’ll be ready to move onto other things. But not until then. And I really dislike when wedding talk spirals out of control and people ask me a million questions like what my schedule for that day will be. Uhhhh….

That’s where I’m grateful for M who gives me a sympathetic smile while it’s happening, and laughs about it with me later. And that’s also how I know we’re going to be just fine, fancy venue or no.

    […] spent most of the week weighing our venue options, trying to decide between two great options. And I kind of stressed about it way more than I should have. I mean really. It’s a venue. […]
