Visited the Venue

I drove 3 hours to visit our venue today. Ive seen it in photos but to actually see it in person was breath taking. I want this to be my venue so bad. I even gave her a $500 deposit to hold our date. The part I don't like. It's $4000. That includes tables, chairs and white linens for 100 guests. There is a bridal suite, bridal party suite and a grooms suite for everyone to get ready. Since we want an outside ceremony the chairs will have to be rented which totals 500 for 100 chairs and then a 200 delivery fee. Use of the venue for 8 hours the day of the wedding. (im not sure this is going to work). Free 1 hour rehearsal, free 2 hour bridal shower, and no charge to use the venue to take our engagement photos. Of course this is just using the venue for free. Problem is the venue is so far away there will probably not be a rehearsal nor will we use the venue for a bridal shower because of distance as well. She did say she would add another hour if we didn't want to use one of the free items. So that is 9 hours. And there is a honeymoon suite that is normally $200 a night that she is going to give us for free that has a full kitchen and she will serve us a continental breakfast. The picture opportunities are stunning. Here are a few photos.

My jaw just dropped open at just the first picture you posted.


I pity you if you've decided not to go with this venue because I don't how anything could compare against this place. 


Some of the restrictions and costs are more than annoying, but if you can find a solution around them....


How did the conversation go with your FI?

The conversation went very well with my FI. His mouth dropped when I told him the price. Of course I showed the photos first lol. He told me whatever I want we will make it happen. THIS IS OUR VENUE. He did have a few questions which I am emailing to Bonnie at the venue. He is always telling me he wants to be my fairy tale and as soon as I pulled up in front of the castle I knew this was where my wedding was meant to take place.


@MrsCaleYoung I told him I would get another job to save more if I needed to. He says that isn't necessary so here I go over the budget again. I bet I go over that thing at least twice a week.
