I went to a Bridal Show here in Hickory on Sunday and holy bejebus that was crazy. There were a LOT of photographers, a few event planners, a few caterers, a few travel agents, and like 2 venues. I guess by the time most brides go to these things, they have a place picked out already. NOT ME. And neither of the places there could work for us. We are getting married in January. Advantage: better rates. Disadvantage: not too many places to have a ceremony indoors. I am not getting married in a church due to the fact that I wouldn't feel right just getting married in any old church. Jared works all day EVERY Sunday so it's not like we could pick a nice church and start going (we would plan on going after the wedding too...). The venue is the one big thing that has had me worried for a while now. And no, I don't want to push the date back any (I want to get married, darn it!). While the Bridal Show was nice because everything was pretty and I got some good info, I don't think I'll be going to another one.
I asked a coworker if there were any nice places to get married in Morganton, which is twenty minutes from where I live, and he gave me a great idea which I will look into. Carmen says now is the time to pick a place, so that's what my main focus is.
In other news, the Jason Castro show in Charlotte was awesome!! I got his autograph, got my picture taken with him, AND HE TWEETED ABOUT ME. Yep. That's right.
