As a just-engaged gal about town, I'm discovering that choosing a venue could be considered the most important decision to make when planning your wedding since it defines the atmosphere for the big day. That's why I love the idea of these upscale bridal shows that provide you with an intimate look at the space and its staff. Since my options are still open, you can bet I'll be checking out New Albany Country Club's Wedding & Event Open House this Thursday, March 24th. The event is from 4 p.m. 7p.m. with hors d'oeuvres and cocktails plus a private tour of the facility. RSVP's are required. Call 614-939-8533 or email meganp@nacc.com. If you attend, consider these practical tips from our wedding experts to make your decision easier! --Liz Warren
