These are the words of a newly-wed bride I talked to last month. She had tried to plan the outdoor wedding of her dreams. She told me that a couple of weeks before the big day even came, she was sick with worry and was crying herself to sleep at night. Why? Because she had too much to do - it was crushing her!
Well, she made it to the big day in one piece and everything was going as well as it could. It ended up raining and they stayed fairly dry under the tent, but the food was cold (it was outside after all) and her friend to promised to serve drinks during the reception had to stay home with her sick kids! Luckly her brother jumped in and tended the bar, but I told her she could have saved herself a lot of work, worrying, and trouble if she had talked to me from the get go.
If you really want to have a wedding day that you, your family and friends will remember, find someone who will do most of the work for you. Choose the wedding reception venue and caterer that will provide you with everything you're looking for. You need it to be someone you can trust with the experience to serve you best. Call around and talk to a couple of different wedding venues/catereres. Ask them lots of questions and make them go into detail. Don't let them strong arm you into signing a contract right away. Do a side by side comparison. Look for:
