- Wedding: April 2014
So I’ve been on a little bit of a hiatus from the Bee for a few months… school, work, and a serious lack of any ability or drive to wedding plan have all contributed to this. But the FI and I are officially back in wedding planning mode seeing as it’s now been exactly 1 year and a few days since we were first engaged and haven’t been able to make any solid commitments.
Our major hang-up is that we’re on a seriously tight budget. I mean, seriously. We’re looking at absolutely less than $2,000 for photographer, cake, ceremony, reception, food, supplies, decorations, tux, etc.
I emailed back and forth with a church and we’ve filled out the application and need to mail it in. Problem is, FI doesn’t want to commit to it until we’ve seen it… which is proving difficult because it’s still being built and won’t be ready until pretty much our wedding date. The pictures the church has put up on Facebook of their progress so far have shown evidence of excellent workmanship and acute attention to detail and I don’t see a problem with commiting.
I’ve contacted many catering companies and other vendors but everyone has basically told me to call back after new years is over. Understandable.
I guess I’m just posting here, now, because I feel really alone in wedding planning. Yes I have my FI but he’s not as… I don’t know, enthusiastic? about getting things done. He doesn’t quite “get” that we need to tie up these loose ends sooner than later.
I try talking to my matron of honor but like usual, she’s too busy. We made plans to actually sit down and talk about the wedding one day next week, but 1) we’ll see if she actually makes it and 2) we’ll see exactly how much wedding planning we can accomplish in the span of a day. *shrug*
So I’d really love some “been there: here are my tips…”, hugs, or whatever. 🙁 Ground control to Major Tom…
