28 Must-Ask Questions for Your Wedding Venue

Awhile back, I got an email from the florist that did our wedding flowers. She said she has a client who is getting married at the Inn where we got married last August, and she had some questions. I, of course, was more than happy to give out my contact information, because have I mentioned I LOVE to talk about weddings? Even better when I can talk about our wedding.

There are just so many things about weddings that are easy to obsess over. The beautiful lacey dresses, the elegant or quirky centerpieces, the personalized touches that make each day unique. When you combine a day of love with all of your favorite people, booze, fancy food and dance parties, it’s hard to have a bad time. I think I may have missed my calling to work in the wedding industry, what a happy beautiful place to be!

We have been reminiscing about our wedding this week more than usual, due to a couple of super amazing, ridiculous things that we were so blessed with that came out revolving around our day. The first is this:
