- Destination wedding
- Small ceremony followed by a celebration with family and friends
- Large traditional wedding that requires a LOT of planning
Here I am now needing to try and plan a wedding, obviously with help from my mom and one of my best friends jill, a diy and crafts extraordinaire, so that will help. However, what you don't know (but they do) is that I'm a HUGE procrastinator. Horrible...as jill said to me the other day, I am the queen of procrastination. So you can imagine how this could go.
Sorry for all the verbage- I felt I need to provide a back story. Anyway, the first you have to do in planning a wedding is figure out the venue and date. Ok- seems simple enough. So far it hasn't been too bad, but honestly, getting Mark to do things like this is like pulling someone's teeth out with a pair of pliers. I mean, does he think I want to spend my weekend doing this? Not really. Anyway, we've gone and checked out 4 venues and I think we've found the one. Soo excited by this. Can't wait for this part to be done. Wedding planning stuff I can get into- selecting wedding colors, looking at bridesmaids dresses, flower girl dresses, planning out decorations, and whatever else you can imagine. I've created a series of boards on pinterest capturing some of my favs.

Mark and I had considered 2 venues in Plymouth as we wanted to consider getting married down or by the water. We had looked at Plimoth Plantation and John Carver Inn. The ballrooms didn't feel big enough even though they could seat a wedding our size (probably have between 100-120) and would be cramped & crowded with dancing. Also, Demetri's function hall looks really grand and the fixtures and furnishings are great all on their own. That element was lacking in both of Plymouth wedding venues.
Now I just have to convince my parents...
