- Wedding: November 2012
First of all thanks for all of the advice everybody…but now I need more!
I broke down and spoke to my sister yesterday because she lives with my mom (and she is harder to offend). She said they were just having a bad time (her ex is crazy and has been making threats that I didn’t know about o_O) and not to take it too personally. Well I am just going to guess that she talked to my mom because my mom called me and asked to see my flowers (I’m hand making paper flowers). Then surprise surprise she asks me to follow her on pinterest and she had made a folder for my wedding weeks ago and just hadn’t shared it!
So now that I’m all warm and fuzzy, she calls me this morning and says that she and my dad talked about budget and there were choices to be made (they can’t afford a super awesome graduation present and a wedding in the same year which I totally get and I love that they are asking my opinion). But then she goes back into the venue talk. She said we should sit down and talk about the budget once I figure out what kind of reception I want, but shouldn’t I know my budget first? Won’t that dictate some of my choices?
I’ve never done any of this stuff before so I’m not sure how it goes, but don’t you start with figuring out what you can afford first? And how do I ask her about it before I know where I want the reception?
