My turn to answer these questions! I have been searching high and low, and have found some potential venues, so hoping we are able to book soon!
- How many vendors have you looked into? Which ones would you like to hire?
I think I have contacted minimum 100 venues, most probably more than that, looked into a majority of them (in the sense of obtaining quotes, etc).
- How many vendors on WeddingWire did you contact?
Including venues, officiants, caterers, and bridal shops: 94
- If you visited or booked them, share some pictures!
We have visited three so far, 1 of which was a no-go. Two require some more thought and working on the budget/guest list: Lordia restaurant and La Vieille Brasserie. I didn't take photos of those last two, but there photos online. We would require a caterer for La Vieille Brasserie.
I am planning to visit at least two more venues, hopefully they can become potential contenders, it has been a long time without finding something that fits the budget. I know my partner is becoming frustrated, has his own set of wishes, our parents have very different opinions, and their own set of expectations, all of which is becoming hard to navigate so I hope that we can settle on something soon.
