Good morning! Another short and sweet post today for ‘Wedding Wednesday’. Ps. If you missed it, here’s our engagement story.
After 6 weeks of total back and forth (and up and down and overall multi-directional insanity and stress) I am so happy to announce that WE HAVE A DATE / VENUE!
We are getting married on July 10th, 2021 at a beautiful venue here in Vancouver, B.C. I’m keeping the venue private right now (just for safety reasons – the joys of the internet 🤦♀️) but am happy to say that it’s in Vancouver.
It feels like the biggest weight has been lifted off our shoulders and we are both so, so, excited to move forward with wedding planning. I was told by a few friends that the most stressful part of their wedding planning was choosing the venue and I wholeheartedly agree. Add a pandemic and the fact that our families live on opposite sides of the country into that mix and you’ve got quite the stressful situation.
For any other brides-to-be venue hunting right now, I wanted to share my top tips for choosing a wedding venue.

Yay! for the next steps. Vancouver is beautiful I remember so your venue will be splendid too. Looking forward to more updates in the coming months.
Thank you so much!
Congrats on finding a venue!! That’s so exciting!
Thank you! It feels so good to finally have it!
Congrats on choosing a venue and date! The wedding planning process was so much fun for me. Hope you enjoy just as much!
Thank you Lizzie! Im hoping from here on out things will be fun / less stressful. I cant wait to try on wedding dresses! and pick a cake flavour lol
We kept our wedding small, well people wise it was large but we kept the budget small and used the help of friends for photography, flowers and food as well as music! Knowing people who could do those things for an affordable budget was the best decision ever! No debt.
Aw that’s so great! it sounds lovely. We’re having about 90 – 100 people so Im hoping to keep it relatively intimate feeling!
These are great tips!
