- Wedding: February 2012
Where to start…my fiancé and i have been together for 5 years and engaged for7 months. We are planning a February 2012 wedding. Neither his nor my family has been very excited about the engagement (they all said congrats) but every time I bring up the wedding they change the subject or just smile and say yeah you have time. Since the 6 months is now, I do need to start planning the wedding but it seems I have no help or support. On top of that Iam a state employee/ my fiancé is a school board employee so our money is limited as to what we can afford (the lowest was 4,000). My mother and stepfather recently gave us the down payment for a house; so asking them is out of the question. I have asked my biological father a couple of times, which he stated he would, but recently when I called him and asked him to help since I have to start booking locations, he now ignores my calls or talks briefly then says he has to go and hangs up (so I assume he does not want to help or can not afford it, and at this point I do not really want to keep asking). Iam willing to put off the February wedding until possibly the summer, but can’t since my fiancé’s younger brother had to get engaged two months after us and is planning there wedding for that summerL. I going to be 30 in 4 months and do not want to be engaged for two years just because we can not afford a wedding. My fiancé wants a wedding for his family and is against a courthouse wedding. I would prefer a courthouse wedding in a few months and then planning a small family wedding for the end of next year, but he is completely against it. Please help…any suggestions would be greatly appreciated.
