Seriously! I love that word. I mean, how is it possible for someone to convey so much thought, attitude, frustration, support, anger, love, and genuine emotion with just the simple tone of a word? Lovely.
That said, I have found myself often discussing, dealing with, venting and just trying to understand the thoughts and reasoning behind some of the things people do and offer and say when it comes to my wedding planning process. Are you with me on this girls? Therefore, I introduce you to Seriously Saturdays...each Saturday I will post a brief thought or anecdote about something wedding related that just makes me say:
Today's thought: So when visiting venues we often asked when their peak season is...in an effort to receive any discounts for 'off season' booking. (see my post on venue interviews here) We were originally told by one venue that their off season months are January through April. Yea for us! We want to book in April. Then when we finally inquired about the pricing, they had a different venue rental fee for each one of those months! And guess what? The month of April was the highest of course. :(
So the fiance told me it would be a good idea for us to consider getting married in March because they would let us book any weekend in March for $1,500 less than the several dates I asked about in April. As silly as it sounds, March is a rain month in So Cal...April not so much (see previous post). I stood my ground and the fiance agreed to let me book my date of April 16th. But they told us if we booked the last Friday in March instead (just 3 weeks earlier) they would have given us the $1,500 discount. SERIOUSLY!?!
Have you had any experiences like this where it seems almost ridiculous how the wedding industry rapes us as brides? I mean, seriously! (excuse the bad analogy)
