Paul and I went to our ceremony venue yesterday to check it out and pay the final amount due. I have been worrying about everyone fitting into the small space, especially extra visitors who are coming for a look. I have also been worrying about dragging my dress down a gravel path to get to the door of the venue, especially if it’s raining and muddy!
I had all my fears put to rest yesterday though. I found out that the cars can be driven literally to the door step of the venue, all I need to do is step out and under the veranda, and they will be there will an umbrella for extra security if it’s raining. We also could see that there will be plenty of space for all our invited guests, and any extras will be able to fit, although they may have to stand on the veranda, instead of inside with the fire.
I just wish I was loaded, there are so many things I’d like to do to make it extra special for our guests. I thought it would be awesome to have a little cafe, because it’s going to be cold, and people could get hot chocolate, tea and coffee. We’d also love to have champagne and nibbles at the ceremony, but we can’t really afford to pay for what would be like having two receptions.
I think it will still be a very lovely, low key wedding ceremony, in the surrounds of an old building with Paul and I standing next to the fire. Of course if it’s a beautiful day we’ll do it all outside, but I kind of like the idea of the fire indoors. It’s what we always said we wanted.
12 days to go!
