The Venue And the Save the Dates

Since before this wedding planning business began, I had it in my head that my top venue was The Yellowhead Brewery. They have a great tasting room and event space full of exposed brick, pipes running along the cieling, and a full sized bar of course. Windows look on to the stainless steel brewing equipment, and the space feels both elevated and casual. They also have a full sized stage with sound equipment perfect for the live band we want.

I was super pleased to discover, after officially contacting them a week or so ago, that thie rental rate is extremely affordable! We set up a time to meet this past weekend and again discovered that not only was it affordable, but the rental agreement is transparent and straight forward, they have a baker on staff who will work with us to create the perfect dessert menu for our dessert only wedding, and the event coordinator will do all of the set up and take down for a small extra fee. Uh, hello, dream space.

With every single Saturday already booked for next summer, we jumped on an availble date in early July (which was a necessity for visiting family members who will already be here in July and are not able to fly out again).

With our date booked and our deposit paid, I quickly ordered our save the date 'business cards' from online printer Moo.

Once our save the dates have gone out, we can happily shift our focus from wedding planning to settling into our new home and puppy searching! Haha, it's going to be a busy, but amazing year! I don't plan on doing much wedding related stuff until we move to the next consultation faze in January!

A couple things left to do before then:
  • Interview and book a photographer
  • Have our engagment photos taken 
  • finilize the guest list 
  • and go dress shopping!
