As I recently told a kind lady opening my business account at RBS, I’d much rather elope than have a big wedding. I adore my fiancé and like the idea of a big party with all of my school friends, getting wine drunk and dancing the night away after eating copious amounts of food dipped in gravy, but also I absolutely hate being the centre of attention. The stage fright is real in this one.
Unfortunately David has veto’ed my plans to do a runner, and so I am learning to embrace the idea of a big wedding with *gulp* the entirety of my extended family present. In doing said embracing, I have begun researching venues. And as is my way, after approximately 30 seconds of googling, I have found the perfect place – an award winning rustic barn conversion in Lancashire.
Obviously I have now decided that this is ‘the one.’ But there is a problem – David’s friend is getting married there this year. We have been invited. David is, in fact, the best man… Is it OK to borrow another guy’s venue?
All I know for certain is this: Wedding season just got competitive.
