@adkellstrom88:  I’m so sorry you are having such a hard time! Chin up and remember to do what you want to do for your wedding! If you want the 100 person party, it might still be possible.  I have a friend who had a 200 person wedding with a 8k budget (VERY hard to do here in MI). 

Let us know if you need any help with anything! This should be a fun expirenece for you!!! And let your mom know your feelings!

@adkellstrom88:  you can pull of a large wedding on a budget, it is possible but it requires work ! decide what you really want and then look at your budget and try to include everything/find alternatives/omit certain things that are just not worth the money to you. 

Im sorry to hear about your FI overhearing that conversation, seems to me like maybe mom has been holding in some feelings and now that its getting close to time she cant hold it in any longer. consider havin a talk in person with her (idk if that would be plausible without knowing details of ur relationship) but I would definitely clear the air because its goin to be awk/uncomfortable for him around her until you do.

@adkellstrom88:  I just wrote a blog post on doing a large wedding on a budget! Is money the only thing holding you back from planning a big wedding or would you rather a small wedding for lots of reasons? Were any deposits lost because of the change of date and venue? I know wedding planning can bring up family drama but I really do enjoy the wedding planning process.

@adkellstrom88:  Wow I’m so sorry you’re going through this! 🙁 Planning a wedding can be tough, and the added stress isn’t exactly welcomed. You can do a big, lavish wedding on a budget, you just need to know where to look. Call in favours, if you can. My DJ was my father’s ex-girlfriend’s dad. My in-laws bought our cake. My aunt made our cupcakes. My hair/makeup lady was a friend from high school. All of that was free for us, and our wedding wasn’t even $1400. It can be done. I hope it turns out for the best, I really do 🙂
