“Confessions of a Future Bride” | Post 4

I want to thank you all so much for following this series. It’s been a blast thus far.

In these next few #weddingwednesdays post, Rachel will be talking about the venues that she visited and ultimately let you in on the venue that she chose!!! She’ll be adding her likes and dislikes for other future brides that are in the wedding planning process with her. Every bride has a theme that they go with for their wedding day. You may actually like and want to go visit one of the venues that she has visited!! So lets take a look at her first appointment.

Post Four – The Venue #1

Okay, so I finally have my ring..

Then I chose my dress..

The next step was to set a date! I did know that I wanted to get married in June… So I needed a venue.. Of course the lovely Erica sent me a million and a half venues to check out. I had a few in mind, but we will start with the first venue.

I first checked out Novellas in New Paltz. I had never heard of this one but it looked super pretty in the photos.


Arthur was the best fiancé in the world with the planning! He is super busy with all of his sports that he plays, but when I asked him if he would mind if I went to check out a few without him, he said that he wanted to go along 🙂 {Love him}

So we went to check out Novellas one day after work. It was very pretty and also affordable. I loved the bar area and the hall; very pretty chandeliers and mirrors and such. It wasn’t out of date in the slightest which I sometimes feel that halls are. It didn’t have the Venetian feel to it that I am not a fan of. It had a very pretty outside area that could be used during cocktail hour. 

A new hotel is being built right next door which will be awesome… I love the idea of being able get ready at the hotel, walk next door for the wedding and back to the hotel for the night. The negative is that the hotel was set to be open in May and that was just a little to close to June for me… I did not want a construction zone viewable from my wedding.

One negative on the venue is the the cocktail hour area seemed very small to me. The outdoor area could be used for cocktail hour, weather permitting, but it was just a very tight area.

Next week… Venue Number Two…
