So FI and I are paying for everything ourselves. Neither of us make much money because we are both students. We have no financial help towards our wedding. FI and I are slowly realizing that we really can’t do this on our own and we do not want to take a loan. But we just don;t know what to do. Every month some bill comes up. We never get a chance to really save for the wedding. All of our deposits are taken care of but now it jsut saving for the rest. What do we do? FI was talking to me today and said maybe we should just cancel the wedding and elope but I do not want too. I have waited my whole life for this moment and feel we both deserve it. I just needed to vent to you Bees because I am sure many of you can understand 🙁

Is there any way that you can cut down expenses and have a smaller less expensive wedding?

What about postponing the wedding? Or is there any possible way that you could ask for help from any of your family? Can you change your venue to a less elaborate one; maybe a park, a hall, or someones backyard? Your wedding doesn’t have to be elaborate. If you can have it at someones home, you could even have a potluck, if you have enough guests that live local. My FI’s sister and her husband had their wedding in their backyard and their food was spagetti and ceasar salad. We brought the salad. There are a lot of ways you can cut costs, if you can put your mind to it.

I agree about the small wedding with close family members. It sounds like you do want a wedding… it wouldn’t be fun to regret not having a wedding. Either way just make sure it’s about you and your future husband. Good luck with your planning (wedding or elopement)!
