- Wedding: April 2014
I am a brand-new bee, and just got engaged last Wednesday (9/19/12) I am super excited, bit overwhelmed, as I am sure a lot of newly-enaaged ladies are. Tentatively, the FI and I are looking to get married in early spring of 2014, but I don’t know where to begin; I know I need a venue and all that, but do I need to get that before I officially have a date? ( I mean what good is a party with no venue!?) Are engagement photos mandatory, and if so when should they be taken?
My FI makes decent money, but he wants to put it toward a honeymoon.. I, started a new career last year and its taking longer than I had hoped to get established, so I have not been working consistently. I just dont know how we are going to afford this (my folks can help some, but I feel bad asking since they’ve already helped me out with nine million other things) I am trying to just enjoy this time, and be happy.. but yikes, its a lot!
Sorry, I intended this to be an introductory post but apparently it was a vent-and-a-half!! I’m already on ‘The Knot’, and have one of those wedding checklists.. is there anything else I should/could be doing? (besides taking abreath, lol)
Any advice would be much appreciated, my fellow bees!
