Went to see a couple of wedding venues, both lovely in their own different ways. As with everything it all comes down to your own particular taste. As this is dd and fiance's wedding it will be their final decision, and as yet they haven't got back to us to say if either one was going to be suitable.
One thing I do know for sure, is that I do not know enough about weddings and how they run. It was quite interesting to see what both people who gave us the tours had to say; and both had excellent advise and do's and don'ts. As one of them said, fall a few minutes behind at the beginning of the event and if you're not careful it could snowball into being hours behind............
It will be interesting to see if they pick either of these places or if they continue to search for that perfect wedding venue. We are going to a bridal show this coming Saturday, so I am hoping that will give us insight into the ins and outs of weddings.
When me and dh got married, it was at our local church. The reception was held in the market hall with a dance/disco afterwards. All very simple and nothing fancy. My dress and the bridesmaid's dresses were ordered by mail and we had someone make them up. I have no idea why we did that. I don't remember going to a bridal store and trying dresses on. Mind you I was lucky and my parents paid for everything.
We spent our honeymoon night at our home and then we went to Tunisia for our honeymoon. No idea if it was for a week or two weeks? I am guessing a week and I know we stayed near a place called Hammamet. A lot of people came down with food poisoning, or with heat stroke. I of course got the heat stroke, as you had to haggle for everything in the markets, so I was in my element there!! Poor dh ended up having to take a Kamikaze taxi ride to find a pharmacy for me as I was that sick.
One funny thing I do remember, was the staff used to come into your room every night to spray the place with mosquito repellent. I am sure they knocked first........they must have..........but then they used to just barge in regardless. Our room was next to a couple who argued a lot as well.......also there were a lot of Germans staying in the resort, so when we went on bus tours, they would point the place of interest out in German first and then English..........by this time you had passed the point of interest.
I remember how blue the sea was and hot it was there. Never been back, and why we chose that place to go in the first place.....because it was different from the usual places. It was the first time that dh had flown or been abroad.
It's funny when I started writing this post I had no idea what I was going to write about.......
