For Molly and Charlie, Congress Hall was the only wedding venue they looked at. “Back when my sister was getting married, my mom and I found Congress Hall and instantly fell in love with it,” said the bride. While Molly’s sister ended up not getting married at Congress Hall, she confessed that in her heart she knew it was going to be the perfect place for her and her future husband..
Another difficult wedding decision is choosing the right vendors. By using weddingwire.com and advice from friends and family, finding the perfect vendors was a breeze for this couple. “I tried to find two to three good options for each vendor and then decide from there so as not to overwhelm myself with options,” Molly said. Molly and Charlie stress the importance of having trust in vendors, especially when it comes to planning a destination wedding. In an effort to get more bang for their buck, the couple also stuck to a strict budget for each of their vendors.
Preparing a wedding can be a stressful affair, but with a little luck and hard work, anything is possible. As for overall advice for all you destination brides and grooms out there, Molly and Charlie had this to say: “Remember to enjoy the day, if one table number is missing or one candle isn’t placed right, you’re the only on that will notice, so just try to enjoy!”
