Congratulations! You’re now engaged and you’re looking for a venue to have the big event. After years of receiving helpful feedback from brides and their parents, I have put some thoughts together in order to help make the process easier for all the parties’ concerned. I only wish that I would have known some of these things when my daughter got married! Costs are always important, and by choosing to have an outdoor wedding, you are letting Mother Nature help provide most of the decorations, thereby saving money.
