Can't find Venue?
Me and my fiancee are going through madness trying to find a wedding venue that fits our style and budget. He prefer a hotel which isn't bad though the one he like is booked for our date so we would have to change it. But it hurts me to do so cause I want my date. Other venues or beautiful but so costly, and we wanted to find a great package deal should we change our date to save money and get the type of venue we want or should we shop around cause he's not a big help and I know nothing about planning a wedding and it's so hard trying to start from anywhere.

Hi Johnetta,

First of all congrats!

If you all have your budget figured out, I would say shop for a planner who has an all inclusive package. You can save money that way and perhaps get the venue of your dreams. If you can not find a planner in the area in which you would like to get married check out some of the video, dj or photography companies. They sometimes have an all inclusive package for services.

Best of luck!
Lets us know if we can answer any additional questions.

The Ashton Depot in Fort Worth is very pretty.

Also the Old Red Musuem in Dallas is pretty.

The nice hotels in Dallas are expensive but well worth it.

I'm not too familiary with Fort Worth hotels.

If the venue you have found is what you and your fiance really want and fits your budget, change your date. You need to make sure your Officiant and ceremony site are also available on the new date. If you really have your heart set on the original date, hire a wedding planner to help you find the venue but you need to realize that venues book anywhere from two years ahead of time. You need to act quickly though because ten months is not that much time to find another venue. Let me know if I can help. Charlene Libertini, Your Day Your Way!
