- Wedding: August 2012
FI proposed last month, and has mentioned that he wants to get married before the end of the year (as he’d like to TTC then, as well). We’ve come to the conclusion that we’d like a very intimate affair (immediate family only, and maybe a couple of friends–bridal party–not even grandparents, Aunts/Uncles, etc.), but we’re not quite sure where to go from there..
He’s mentioned a JOP wedding, with a restaurant reception afterward, but TBH, that’s not really my cup of tea. Don’t get me wrong, the only thing I really care about is becoming his wife, but I can’t shake a DW out of my mind. He’s wishy-washy on the idea, since he’s pretty sure a few of his most imporatant people (brothers, and a groomsman) wouldn’t be able to afford it, but I thought I’d take to the boards to get some input..
When you were researching a DW, where/what were some of the cheapest packages you found? What did it include (for how many people)? What was the overall cost you wound up with.. and, how did it compare to what you budgeted?
