- Wedding: November 2012
First of all I would like to say that I am very happy for all of those brides out there that get to spend 30k, or even 20k+, on their weddings. Good for you, you guys have money and get to make your day as amazing as you want! This is nothing against you.
However I can’t help but get a little bit jealous. I try so hard to be grateful and thankful to God of what I have been given. So hard. But I can’t help sometimes but feel a little bit bitter, or jealous, or whatever the word is, that my wedding budget is likely to be under 3k including everything but honeymoon. And for my family, that is A LOT of money. At first I was going to have to pay for it myself but my dad decided to help. When I told him the average wedding is 30-40k he about flipped a b. He is giving me a 5k budget but he has to COME UP with that money, and I doubt that will happen, so I am doing my best in planning to keep the wedding itself under 2k and I paid for my 1k dress myself.
I just can’t imagine having 40k laying around to spend on one day. If I had 40k, I would by a new car since my SO and I share one. I would also probably put a downpayment on a house.
It’s just crazy to me. Anyone else feel me?
