- Wedding: July 2012
And we’re completely unsure of how the dang thing is going to get paid for! :-/ My dad just recently found out that come June 30, he’s basically out of a job.. he works for the Postal Service, and well, a bunch of people come June, will be losing their jobs.. And my mom is a real estate Broker, which is nice and everything, but money isn’t always a guarantee in her line of work.. especially with the housing market these days! And my fiance’s family is all into the “traditional” way of things, where the “girls family pays for the wedding..” Now, I understand this and everything but 1. His family HAS money, and LOTS of it.. they’re the ones that want it to take place where it’s going to be.. yes, I know it’s my wedding and should be up to my fiance and I, but to me, location doesn’t really matter.. all that matters to me, is that I will get to marry the man of my dreams! BUT, for them, it’s all about a dang show to their family..It’s happening at a country club, so it’s pricey. While we did price out a couple places, and for what we’re getting, we ARE getting a good deal.. but still.. I was down to just run away to Reno or Lake Tahoe and get married, but we got the evil glares when we mentioned it..
and 2.. his family is SO into this traditional bs, but I told my fiance, if they’re all into the tradition of things, his family is the one that should be paying for our honeymoon.. and when it got brought up, his dad said we could use his time share, and just pick any of the places it’s at.. BUT, we’d have to pay to get there and everything else in between.. now, I’m grateful that his parents are willing to give up one of their weeks to us.. but seriously!? Don’t sit there and keep talking about tradition, then try and say this.. I told my fiance, that we might as well just go on a cruise for our honeymoon, since yeah, the timeshare would be nice, but flights are expensive, and the cost of food for a whole week, adds up quick,,
I’m less than 4 months out, and honestly at this point, we have SO much left to do, and I have NO idea how ANY of this is even going to happen…
