Trying to find a place to have the darn thing

So, this week, I've been hired to find a place to hold a birthday party in June. I love research, so it's fun for me, but this stuff tends to be kind of frustrating for the person I'm working for. What you tell someone that you want, and the picture in your head can be kind of different. You might want a place with a balcony, but not if part of the balcony looks over a parking lot. You say you want a huge room, but not with that carpet! I always try and tell people that the process might take a while - start with three, and go from there. The first three sites usually gives me a better idea of what to really look for.

In other site news, one of my summer brides was mulling over how NOT to invite kids to her wedding. Liability issues with the site, mostly - the wedding's outside, around a big pool. However, not inviting children is considered, Emily Post-wise...somewhat rude. I'm all about having the wedding you want, but I just made her aware that she might piss some people off. You just have to decide if it's worth it to ya.
