- Wedding: July 2013
So I just got engaged two weeks ago and we have been planning for a wedding this summer. Being engaged is supposed to be exciting, which it was at first, but now it’s so stressful and it’s only been two weeks. First cause of stress was my fiance’s sister is getting married in the summer also, so we had to rearrange the date we wanted. Now we have been looking at July, but my fiance is stressed and wants to move it to December. I don’t want to wait that long. We’ve been looking at getting engagement pictures done, and it’s stressful because it’s so expensive. Both of us are in college, and my parents are going to be paying for most of the wedding, but they don’t have a lot of extra money around. His parents are expecting this lavish wedding, and it’s just not a reality. So he’s taking what he’s seeing from his sister’s wedding and wanting to do all these things for our wedding. Also we’ve already had a talk about how I haven’t been listening to his opinions about things, but I feel like most of those are because I’m trying to be smart financially with wedding stuff. I don’t see the need in paying so much for something if we can get it a little cheaper with a little extra work on our parts. I think he would rather pay the extra money and have it be easier. Any advice to a new bee?
