Venue Viewing

Mr. Newport and I are in love with our venue, The Atlantic Beach Club. Since our engagment, we have gone to visit, at least 5 times. Our Wedding coordinator probably thinks we're crazy. I apologize every time I ask for another visit and assure her it is the last time, and she tells me to come as often as I'd like. So I do! I know it sounds a bit obsessive, but the first time we went was to meet with them and look at the place, the second was to sign and show my mom, the third was to show my bridesmaids, the fourth was to show my dad, sister and future brother in-law, the fifth was to show FFIL and FMIL Newport.I know certain people show the dress to multiple people prior to, but haven't heard of many showing the venue off so much. I think it's interesting to see what are other bride's favorite aspects of the wedding are that they like to show off.

Anyone else gone through something similar where you love showing a certain aspect to everyone?

How beautiful! I wish that I could get married there! Mr. Shopaholic says that we're never going through that again, but I would LOVE to get married every week...& yes, I too showed my venue numerous times. The first, my mom & I went, then my preacher & his wife, then Mr. S. & my mother-in-law, then the bridesmaids, then the photographer & other vendors. Thankfully, we got married at my church campground, so we just showed up (outdoor wedding & reception so no one had to show us around). Good luck & enjoy this time--it will be gone before you know it!

I don't think your crazy at all. AT ALL. This is your wedding! You should be able to go and visit as much as you want...and how often as you want until you feel confident that everything is under control. This is your year!!! Eat it up!!

BTW - it is so beautiful. Perfect!!

Why not go as often as you like! As beautiful as it is I'm sure it costs a pretty penny so enjoy it!

Oh my gosh that looks AMAZING! Thank you for the warm welcome to blogworld, I was clicking through links on Heidi's page and when I saw the quote on yours I couldn't believe it, I knew someone had to be thinking like me out there!! Haha! Loved your Disney story by the way, 2 trips, I can't IMAGINE how mugh you must have been going crazy! People have been trying to guess when he's going to pop the question for over a year now, and at first I'd just say "no, probably not" and not think about it. Well now I ALWAYS think about it, drives me nuts.

Good luck with preparation and love every minute, I look forward to reading more as your fairy tale unfolds!

Ha I am the WORST at showing off the venue. I have collected dozens of photos from other weddings at my venue and everytime I find something new, I always email it to people at work and friends. Probably a little obsessive =)

That's a beautiful venue! I love showing people my venue too. It's weird because most of my family has already been there, but a lot of my friends haven't. Trust me, you're not crazy! I love your blog :-)

If i lived close to my venue, i'd do the same. I live 3000 miles away and the venue i'm eyeing, i've been to at least twice and sent others to see as well lol

BEAUTIFUL!

i also visit my venue religiously! we have a 19month long engagement, so I made sure to visit often the year before the wedding date to see what the outdoor weather was like. i have probably visited at least 10 times with different people. so, if you are crazy, so am i!

I've visited Atlantic Beach Club and it's beautiful. I love how it is right by the beach. I understand why you would want to show it to people. If I live in or near Newport, I would be visiting my venue more often too :)
