Enjoy the journey of planning. If you start getting too stressed out, back off, slow down your breath, and then regroup. If it does not feel right, then don’t do it.

Comparing apples to oranges !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Make sure to do a site walk at your venue before signing on to any venue. I have found pictures and videos do not always give you the full picture, and there are many pictures out there that give a false impression.
