Farm Weddings

July 10, 2009

Today was a very exciting morning. I woke up, did pilates, had McDonalds to cancel out calories lost during pilates, and discovered the amazingness of farm weddings.

Get ready for a visual overload. These dinners are done by a group named Outstanding in the Field. They tour around the world, working with chefs, setting up meals in natural settings, with their signature long white linen washed tables. They did one near Houston just outside of Brenham at Jolie Vue Farms. Unfortunately, Jolie Vue does not host weddings unless it’s their own family member.

However, Outstanding in the Field does handle private events. At $180/head for their usual public events, I’d imagine private events are pretty pricey too. But if we have it at a farm, perhaps the venue price would go down, and we can put that money towards good food (my favorite, as you all know from our Italy trip!)

Since the recent changes from the Wortham Center happened, we’re having second thoughts about where we should get married. Basically, they are heaping on a bunch of extra fees that we didn’t know about when we put our name down for the place. In addition, they totally changed what they said about the catering, which is frustrating, not to mention expensive. Thankfully, we didn’t need to put any money down to reserve the space. It’s still an option, and we may still have it there. But as of right now, we are considering and very open to other places! See this post for our other ideas.

What do you think are the pros and cons of having a farm wedding? Bathrooms? Weather conditions? Animal disruptions? đŸ˜›

    I’m so confused – I thought y’all had the venue and the date set for June 26 at the wortham center?
