Wedding Series- The Venue

Why helllo lovelies!

It’s been awhile since I have had the chance to sit down and actually write a blog post but I’m back!

As many of you know, I’m getting married soon- September actually… so I decided to kind of start a “wedding” series. Hopefully you all enjoy my wedding series and maybe it can help you out even at some point planning your own wedding.

The first thing we did was of course find my venue, all I knew was I wanted to be married on the beach and when I say on the beach I mean toes in the sand. Conveniently the only venue that did weddings on the beach was the hotel my family stays at every time we visit the beach.

As we were checking out from our vacation my mom and I mentioned having a wedding there and they gave us a information folder with all the information we would ever need to know about having a wedding at their hotel. As I looked through the packet I knew I wanted to be married there- my mom knew that was the place also.

We did some thinking and looking at numbers, when we settled on a date we called the Wedding Coordinator and booked the venue for September 16.

The venue included the upstairs restaurant for the reception and neither of us had seen the room so we scheduled a meeting time and made a meeting time to view the room where our reception would be held.

Oh. My. Gosh. Talk about beautiful, there’s a cute little room off to the side with hardwood floors and that’s where the DJ and the dance floor are during the reception. We are also given use of the outside deck which faces the ocean… major heart eyes guys.

My wedding is a Sunday afternoon wedding, 11-4, perfect sunlight pictures and hopefully perfect weather.

As of right now, I’m leaning to only serve mimosas and beer no hard liquor… it’s early and I want my wedding to be classy as possible… don’t get me wrong, if you serve alcohol at your wedding more power to you! It’s just a decision I’m going to have to really think about.

Along with the venue comes with the colors- linens, flowers, cake etc. As of now I’m thinking blue jean blue, burlap brown, peachy pink, and like a leafy green. More natural colors.

The linens have been a hard decision for me but I think I have finally picked which color out of those I want to use, buuutttt you’ll have to wait and see what I choose closer to the date!

The wedding coordinator has made the venue much easier. She will take my decor the night before and put it all up for me and get my whole wedding ready for me and all I have to do is show up to my wedding. That’s another selling point of my venue.

Along with my venue, on our anniversary every year we get a free nights stay at the hotel, free of charge just because we got married at the venue. Yes I’m serious- a free nights stay at the beach… I’ll take it!

Well, that’s my “Venue” post… hopefully you all enjoyed it and maybe it helped you out! If you have any questions feel free to leave them below!

XOXO,

Ashley

I’m Getting Married???

Hello loves! I’ve been MIA for awhile but all with a good reason 🙂 My fiancé and I have been engaged for 2 years and I have finally decided to start planning my wedding! 
My family and I were at the beach a few weeks ago just on a family vacation and we saw a family packing up their wedding materials. Something inside me sparked because I thought and thought, the hotel gave me a wedding planning packet and I have decided to get married on the beach! 

I’ve decided a small beach wedding is what I want, I’ve always dreamed of getting married on the beach. I want a small wedding so there will only be 60 guests. I’m happy to announce that my wedding date is September 16, 2018! 

I have been so excited planning small things for my wedding and planning where I want to honeymoon… I’m happy to announce we are going to Disney World! I’m so excited for all these events and the changes in my life… and marrying the man of my dreams 🙂 

Well, that’s where I’ve been and what I’ve been doing! I hope you all are well! 

XOXO, 

Ashley
