What I learned tonight...

Been doing some wedding research and am fairly amused by what I'm finding (not surprising as I can be oblivious sometimes)...
  • September is the most popular month to get married in San Diego
  • A nice garden property that looked great is actually owned by a cult (thanks to them for having a footer on the website saying operated by... and thanks to wikipedia for explaining what the group is all about - apparently public reaction to this cult actually prompted the "anti-cult" movement in the 1980s)
  • Hotels minimums for Saturday nights vary wildly... one was 20k another was 7k. 
  • April is a month in which I may be able to negotiate a lower rate (according to the hotel that has the 20k minimum)
  • There are places out in the country that advertise "theme weddings" for which even the staff will dress in costume (think Renaissance Faire)
  • Photographer's websites are the most entertaining way to find wedding ideas, be it locations, necklaces, netting hats, etc.
  • It's going to be really hard to decide things as there are tons of great options locally
Next, I will do the research on the other towns we are considering (also full of options!). This really couldn't be more fun, considering one of my favorite things to do is look through pictures, and this provides a heckuva reason to do that.
