(decorated for a different event)
You can read the post for all of the details and pictures, but here are a couple of highlights. First, those beautiful chivari chairs are included for free. Second, there is no venue rental fee, no linens and table fee. Basically, the only things we pay for are the food and alcohol. And the food isn't outrageously priced at $70+ a plate. A middle of the line, delicious option, is only $20 a person, and we can do a kids meal for $7. Plus, we can bring in our cake lady, our own DJ, photographer, etc.
And it doesn't hurt that the ceiling is gorgeous, and it's on at a Country Club that we can use to take pictures after the ceremony.
And going back through all of my old posts I've realized I haven't really shared all that much about my vendors. I didn't do it on purpose, but I'm also from a little bitty town, and they're not well known vendors in big cities, so sharing with you won't really do much good. Although I do plan on doing an indepth review of everything afterwards. At this point I'd really only be able to tell you who I picked, and that's a little boring.
Hopefully this served its purpose for some of my new followers. I do talk a lot about my projects and ideas, and don't really dive into all the other aspects as much. So from now on I'll try and work on that.
I wouldn't mind designating a day to answering any questions I get during the week, so if you're wondering about anything else, or want to know more about my personal life, ask away! I don't mind =]
