- Wedding: April 2014 - Rebar
So ladies i am officially engaged! yay! and we are planning to hold the religious ceremony on 03.21.14, which is fairly soon. I just got engaged two days ago lol. FI (yay!) and i have wanted a short engagement for several reasons and we are not looking to change the date.
With that been said…i am planning a small simple and classy wedding. We originally had plan dinner at a restaurant with about 20 people. Close family and friends. But my FMiL suggested she had several people she would like to invite. And my parents as well. With everyone included we have 46 people! close to 50. Still fairly small wedding but larger then we had expected. So we have narrow it down to two places that we will be holding the wedding reception. Rebar in Brooklyn and Old Westbury manor. Both hold a very different feel. Not exactly sure which one we will pick yet. FI is more geared towards Rebar which is a more unique space but for some reason old westbury is somethign that my heart lights up a bit more. ANyways we are both working on a very tight budget…as well. So lots of thing to keep in mind!!! As you can imagine i am stressing just a bit. O and on top of that FI is moving to our first apartment. We have absolutely no furtinure and we recently just bought out dining set and bedroom set which was expensive. Lots of going on…i recently got a promotion as well. The work load is a bit on the heavy side so no time for much.
My question to those bees that are engaged is what suggestions or ideas can you provide to a bee that needs help planning a wedding in 2.5 months!
I got the venue part done as well as the potential guest list which will be confirm by my parents and FMIL this coming week.
Thanks ladies for hearing me out and for allowing to vent… its been a very intersting two weeks! exciting!
Also one more thing…FI is crazy about having our civil ceremony on 03.17! ST patricks day! I am not sure why i agreed but i did over coffee on the new years day after we got engaged. He is super excited about it. Lol i have no idea what i have gotten myself into. lol
