So what direction did we go with in our search? I’ll be totally honest since we’re all friends here. I started to get extremely frustrated in our search for a venue. Everything I came across needed too much decorating, was too expensive, had unappetizing food, had too many restrictions, didn’t feel like us, wasn’t available, and so forth.
Mr. Farmer started to feel horrible for me, and he suggested I take a break from planning. You’re probably going, “You guys just started planning and you’re taking a break?” I got so frustrated that I just didn’t want to do anything wedding related anymore. Mr. Farmer wanted to help, but he didn’t know how, other than to give me lots of wine and be a good shoulder to cry on.
Let me tell you brides out there, sometimes you just need to step back and take a breather. This was one of my first reality checks that planning is hard work. You’re not going to find the option that works best for you without a lot of hard work and shopping around.

I am going to throw you lovelies a complete curve ball and let you in on a little secret. We are NOT getting married in Minnesota like we thought. We are NOT getting married at a golf course like we had anticipated. Heck, we are NOT having it in a hotel ballroom, and we are NOT getting married in a barn. Well what does that leave?!
