First Thing is First...

Hello fellow readers,

So, for this entry I decided that we must start with one of the first steps in the wedding process... the venue! The venue is such an important part to the wedding because it truly sets the tone, budget, and theme for the whole wedding. MyMr and I have a very tight budget with the current economic crisis and whatnot, so it was very important for us to find a location that would either allow us to have our own caterer OR have very inexpensive food packages.

It took FOREVERRRRR for us to find a venue. Everytime that we would find a place, it would end up being about $100 a person (JUST FOR THE FOOD) or it wasn't available when we had hoped it would or the venue rental fee was insane.

Finally, when I thought we would never find a place, we stumbled upon Riverwalk Golf Course. This place is AMAZING. We have to use their food, but it is VERY reasonable (about $30 a person) and the venue fee is VERY small ($500). The place is gorgeous! The woman in charge of booking events is absolutely amazing as well! Rachel at Riverwalk has been an amazing help. She not only responds to my emails in a very timely manner, but she also has given me great advice for making the wedding day go smoothly. She is phenomenal.

All you readers out there, just know that I understand that choosing the venue can be a very high stress time. There were plenty of times where I thought we would never find a place within our budget. Have faith that there is a place out there and it is going to be beautiful no matter what. After all, all that matters is that you get to marry yourMr. :)

Since so much talk in the post has been about Riverwalk, the link for the day will be the link to their website:
