- Wedding: June 2013
We were supposed to get married at a family friends barn, and they accidentally booked two weddings the same day. So they gave the date to the person who booked it first. Im trying to complain because honestly that is fair, but Im a bit disappoint especially since the wedding is June 22…not that far away and the most popular month to get married.
We are having a horrible time trying to find a venue to fit out theme (theme was rustic country & vintage) so we wanted the reception in a barn. Only problem is we started ordering decorations and if we dont do the theme we lost some money.
We cant seem to find a caterer, wedding cake, or even a DRESS for me. I feel so disorganized and unprepared, and on top of all this we are in the middle of moving.
Im kind of concerned about our wedding date now. He had family and friends that already took off work, and June will work because most of my friends will be out of college and they had plans already booked for August and Septemeber.
My mom never really had an interest in the wedding, not because she doesn’t like my FI, I guess this just isn’t her thing but she has also suddenly started telling me she will help plan in Jan. I just feel like it will be too late then since things get booked really early and neither she nor my FI seem to understand that.
Im wanting to just Elope, call it a day and move on. Too much stress trying to deal with this. My FI on the other hand is telling me we will regret it if we dont have a nice wedding, and he wants me to have a special day since I never have had a “day to be a princess” as he calls it (I missed graduation, both proms, and almost every important event ever). Its really sweet, but I have no clue how we can pull a wedding off in 6 months. I feel like its kind of impossible.
So advice would be appreciated Bees…should I elope, or does anyone think I can actually do this in 6 months? Has anyone ever planned a wedding last minute and have any advice?
