Does anyone have any suggestions for a wedding with approx. 30-40 guests?
I have a venue but my coordinator is not willing to help and basically told me that she doesn't care if I cancel with her.
There's a lot more to the story and she really screwed me over about a month ago so now that I'm asking her to do something she is very uncooperative and unresponsive. She is always TOO BUSY to answer my emails and won't respond for a couple of days until I finally have to call her.

I need a place that is not ridiculously overpriced for my small wedding.

If you don't know of a venue, a restaurant with a private room or area might work.

Thanks in advance!!

Hello!!! You sound exactly like I sounded almost 2 years ago. I had a rough beginning with our first planner. I gave her the deposit and never heard from her until I contacted her. However I did find another and they were GREAT! It was called Forever I do weddings-call and speak to Stacy or Annette, they are the Best!!!! I had the ceremony & reception at the Emerald Grand and they have a private beach for small ceremonies. Sadly it rained from the moment we left Tx until right after we said I Do so we didn't get to use the beach. Either way, contact Stacy/Annette- they are really helpful! They will help you find a venue even before you hire them or send them any money! Let me know if this helps, and congratulations!!!!

I thought the same thing, that a destination would be simple. :) probably a little simpler than a regular wedding bug I do believe more stressful because you're not there all the time to see what's going on. Have you been down there to look around?? Do you plan to go down before your wedding?

That's exactly it! It's really hard b/c I can't just go and get answers or look at the venue.
I went in May and thought that would be okay, but I may need to go some time this month or next to look at/for another venue.

My photographer was a huge help. I planned every thing myself , but Blu Event was great at arranging the officiant and beach setup. I rented a house on the beach and had my wedding there. I had big day event rental deliver tables and chairs and I catered in the backyard.check out Mari Darr Welch for photography and she can give you suggestions on who to go to. She's amazing and so talented, plus from destin with contacts :)
