- Wedding: March 2013
My fiance wants to elope- wedding is just getting to stressful, I have a bridesmaid that cant fit into any dress (shes a size 24) our minister just cancelled on us do to prior arrangements being changed to our wedding date that he cant get out of. My fiance’ job is very slow right now and is closing for 2 weeks in December. We have cut back as much as we can- we changed our day and location, being off season saved us ALOT, my brother in law is now going to DJ, we changed caterers (saved us half) our photographer and videographer are free (very close friends of ours). I want to have my family and close friends there– we have sent out save the dates and my invitations are in the cart ready to be paid for, but Im scared to send them out that we wont be able to pay for everything! Neither my family nor his family can help in any way. His parents will give us $500 for the rehersal wedding. Only my sister (MOH) has bought her dress.. HOW DO I CUT THE WEDDING PARTY BACK TO JUST MOH AND BEST MAN AND MAKE IT SMALL AND INTIMATE?? HOW DO YOU WORD YOUR ANNOUNCEMENT AFTER I ALREADY SENT OUT ALL THE SAVE THE DATES FOR A DIFFERENT DATE?? Do I just say that due to unforeseen financial problems we have decided to have a very small and intimate ceremony with just our family ( but have a close “family like” friends there too) I need to get something moving, and Im stressing out!! Its all I can think about and its really taking everything out of me!! PLEASE HELP!! Every lil bit of advice is greatly appreciated!!
