The main point of the weekend was to check out a couple of venues and go DRESS shopping! So, on Saturday morning, my mom, sister, aunt and I went to look at two venues and then did about 3 hours of dress shopping. I say, with great pleasure, that I found the dress. I wish I could post a picture for the whole world to see, but unfortunately, Adam likes to take a looksy at the blog from time-to-time. I can say, however, that if I wouldn't be strangely out of place, I would wear that beautiful gown every day from now until... well, forever! :)
I wish that the venue shopping was just as satisfying. This is quite a difficult process! I thought I would walk in, fall in love and put a deposit down. Yeah... no. Adam and I did some research before I travelled last weekend and we found two places that we LOVED.
1. The Keeler Property
It's brand new... check out the story here. Such a cute idea...
2. The White Room
After looking at those two venues, we all decided that I definitely needed to look at many more, especially to compare the total package at the end of the day. So, with that being said, there are about 15 venues that we are looking at right now. I wish Jacksonville had a little bit more to offer- the venues that we like have either been used by other brides that I know, are too pricey or are missing the charm. I think I'm going to build my own venue in Jax. Anybody in? :)
That's the news on my end. How was everybody's Labor Day weekend?
