I have been very quiet with my wedding posts recently because there was just one hurdle after another! When I arrived in Germany for our 7 week stay I thought I had it all planned out the date, the church, the priest, the venue….And then this happened:
Oh yeah outside our planned venue they knocked down a house, surely that will be gone by start of next May I hear you say? Well, it would be IF it would be an ordinary building side where the old house goes and a new one is getting build. Unfortunately it’s a bit more complex and the owner of the land wants to sell to the parish of the village who would love to buy it but money is an issue. And so we are expecting this picture to last for a while. I just can’t see myself having a venue where I go outside and stand right next to a big pile of gates and rubbish. So off I went to find a new venue and somehow I just run out of option.
Until my Auntie suggested to pop by a nearby restaurant with attached hotel whom had a freestanding hall right next to their hotel which had round tables, a little stage, a bar and space for 190+ people which is plenty and best of all its open end so we can party till there is no tomorrow!
So 2 days before I flew back home to England I had secured a new venue with my old date. Or so I thought!
Back home and having attended our sons upcoming school information evening we realised our date is nowhere near a school holiday…..yep you might have guessed we had to move the date. Thankfully the venue was more then happy to move the date to a later one! Phew!
So now with a new venue and a new date I only have to slightly change my Save the Date Cards (oops…thank god I haven’t send them out yet) and then it’s all ready to go!
So I am happy to say (once again!!) Let the Countdown begin!
I now have exactly 365 days to organise the biggest day of our lives!
Let the madness begin!!!
