So, I’m in a predicament. My fiancé and I are planning to get married October 2nd, 2021!
I have two venue option. Both are free and available for us to use when we’re ready.1. Fiancé’s family Backyard- it’s somewhat not levelled, we’ll have to fix that close to the time.- it doesn’t have space for my little ceremony I wanted to have- the background has a lot of trees and what not going on (it has character) however, not much space
2. My family friend’s Farmland- lots of space - can have separate areas for the ceremony and reception- it’s about 30 minutes or so from where we live- the roads are dark at night since there are no lights
Additional ish to stir up my challenging situation: my parents (mainly dad) are telling us to get a tent. We don’t really see the need for a tent. They mentioned that in case of rain 🌧. But we have to think about permit, they are sooo expensive (got a quote and it’s almost to $3000 just to rent it. Ugh. Not only that, my dad called a meeting with my fiancé and I, and my fiancé felt attacked as my dad was addressing everything to him (as he wants to keep it in the backyard). We said no, we weren’t going to get a tent. Also, my dad said if there is no tent, he won’t be coming at the wedding OR he’s speaking generally that people need tent and people won’t come if there isn’t any.... I’m still annoyed at him for that comment. So I’m so confused at this point.
So, with that backup information. My predicament is really trying to figure out which option seems better and do we need to think of a tent? I was only thinking of a small wedding and it turned into a next level challenge.
Help a sister out! Sorry for this long read. Much appreciated! 🙏🏾
