- Wedding: October 2009
I am running out of time and need ideas and Help! We are getting married on Oct. 25th. We had budgeted everything so we could have the wedding that is redneck style but our way (I was to ride a quad down the isle and now do not even have anything to wear) and we wanted to pay for the people that could not afford to come, we took care of that months ago when prices were great and was slowly paying everything else as it is out of state. We had it all planned to where we would have our bills paid for the month and Nov. rent paid prior to leaving for the wedding Oct 22nd. But I fell down my stairs and torn up my knee. I ended up having surgery which I lost work hours for, then I was worried about the wedding and bills. I work for a non-profit helping people save there homes for free. So I went back to work and then due to using my knee to soon I ended up with a blood clot in my leg. Understand I am the only one working right now. My fiance was in Law Enforement and due to his VA Disability he had to quit and now is going back to college in a retraining VA program. All was well until my injury. I have to have injections in my stomach for 10 days plus use a walker and this has caused such a hardship we may have to cancel the wedding. This is not what we want to do as we have planned for so long and we have 40 people coming who have already paid air and hotels. We wanted to make sure we had everyone covered to where now we are short about $4000 and what I am looking for is ideas to raise quick cash so we do not have to call it off. we are even short on our home bills. We do not have credit cards do not believe in them and now we would not quailfy for one anyway. any ideas would be so greatly appreciated. We do not have much to sell as we sold most items when I had my head injury 1 1/2 years ago. Yes we come from hard knock school but we have always gotten by on our own with no help. This is the first time I am stressed about money and if I get to get married or not. I have not even thought about if I get to walk by then I have to cover one thing at a time.
