So FI and I are 11 days away from our wedding day…and I have had a moment whe re I kinda wish I eloped and just went on an awesome honeymoon.
I am sure that the wedding day will come and it will be so amazing…but it is so expensive, especially where I live.
I forgot to budget for tipping the vendors (photographer, maitre d, bridal attendant)
I am upset because I am going to have debt after the wedding is over. Its not a lot, but I was hoping to walk away from the wedding scott free…
just venting bees….

I hear you. I’m just about a month away and all the “little last minute things” add up quickly. Just wedding beauty prep costs an arm and a leg. I am leaving on vacation the very next morning, and I though I had all my finances in check right on budget….until I found out my dog needs surgery now I’m stressing more than I already was. I originally wanted to elope but didn’t (long story) I’m like you I know my day will be amazing I just don’t want to go in debt by having it. I wish you luck and know your day will be incredible

@Ms_BlueBear: Yes! The last minute things and I thought we had a good budget to spend on our honeymoon but we might have to dip into the money we get from the wedding and I was hoping not to do that.
do you have insurance for your dog? I do and I find it to be worth the money. Its called Pets Best and they cover up to 80 % of the bill. Only thing you wont get reimbursed for is medication and the office visit. I know it might be too late now but, might be worth looking into for the future

I hear ya. It’s a little different for me because I’m already married due to immigration paperwork but I’m having a big wedding and because most people dont know I have to pretend like Im not married and this is it. This last week has made me really want to spill the beans and just be over it but I know it’ll cause more drama then there already is so keeping my mouth shut it is.
I just want to wear my dress and get drunk and not care anymore.

YES! That is where I’m at as well!! Found out tonight FI invited 4 people to the wedding without telling me. He verbally said something like “hey bro, wanna come to my wedding?” and then says to me “Oh yeah I forget to mention that to you”. DEEP BREATH IN….

@AirForceWife78: I actually said to SO the other day why didn’t we just elope? Oh wait! We did….
I’m going to go buy a yoga game for the Wii tomorrow I think. I can’t do another month of this stress. I’m realllllllllly glad I made a massage appointment for the thursday before the wedding!

I feel the same. Everything is adding up and there is still so much to do!!! I looked up Vegas elopment packages the otehr day!
@AirForceWife78: I’m pretty sure my FI verbally invited a ton of people to our wedding! I’m still not sure how many. I only find out when someone texts or emails me asking when the wedding date is or saying they haven’t received any information. Our venue only fits 100 people max! I told FI to clarify this with everyone he invited.
