Bigger isn't always better.
The process of finding a venue actually reminded me a lot of a classic childhood story you may have heard before. It's called Goldilocks and the Three Bears. The future husband and I saw venues that were toooo expensive. Then we saw venues that required toooo much work. Finally, we found one that's juuuust right. Now, let me explain what we learned along the way.
But this fairy tale wedding option doesn't come cheap.
Picking a venue is a big deal. It's expensive, it sets the tone and it's the fulcrum on which everything else hinges. Having attended a few weddings yourself, you may be tempted to think picking a perfect wedding venue is a stroll in the park. Not quite.
