I don’t really know what happend, one day we are talking about a food truck and plastic cups for wine and today we are looking at a venue that my FI loves! …uhm..what the EFF happend here?
I’m getting sucked in again, I want a wedding we can afford, I don’t want to sell my organs for a wedding, or eat dry bread for the next two years…
It’s so easy to get carried away when it comes to weddingplanning, we are getting married on september 13th and we need to make some choices NOW, but what to do…Do we go with the venue and not worry about decoration and buying drinks and food ourselfs of do we stick to the original plan and do it anyway? I’m so confused right now, I just want to give up and just have a nice dinner with friends and family and call it a day…
Just a mild rant from me, but tell me bees on a budget….did you go for price or convenience?

If that would make you happy, then that is what you should do 🙂 It’s so easy to lose sight of what really matters on a wedding day: the two of you being married surrounded by people you love…and having fun 🙂
There is NO shame in a simple wedding 🙂

We have chosen an all inclusive package so that we don’t have to worry about a thing. It’s convenient for us. Everything in the one place.

@badabing88: No shame at all! I’m just wondering if I would feel like I missed out on someting later on…..Shit is just getting crazy right now and I’m feeling lost in the wonderfull world called wedding sh*tstorms!

@Dutchbee: Well, in any case, choose the option that is less complicated 🙂

@Dutchbee: I feel you.
When we first got engaged, we were looking at spending around £6k/$9k, and having our reception at a local pub, not having a fancy photographer, doing loads of DIY, getting a dress from the high street, etc.
Somehow, that has spiralled to £24k/$36k (ahem) and now involves canapes, a 3 course sit-down meal, a plush venue, a top photographer, a string quartet as well as a band and DJ, designer outfits… Etc.
For us it wasn’t about convenience or price though: my parents offered to pay, very generously, and after some major discussions we decided to go for it as we wanted one big, special day; we don’t want children, so this really will be the biggest/most special day of our lives, and we wanted it to be as damn near perfect as possible.
I think that ultimately though you should go with what you want, and what’s right for YOU; I often wish we had a huge garden and could have had a reception at home, but, it wasn’t going to happen 🙁

@Dutchbee: Personally I would love food from a food truck….it’s a little something different and so much tastier than standard wedding food. I’m having plastic cups at my wedding. We could have spent a lot more money but my priorities were great food, yummy drinks and fun. All that other stuff no one remembers.

@barbie86: Ow DEAR! That quit the difference! I hear you on the garden though…to bad we live in tiny houses here in Holland…with equally tiny backyards, that’s not gonna happen!
@jessdoxy: I love foodtrucks…It gives a certain kinda charm I believe! We are still in doubt about this whole thing and at this point I just stopped giving a F*ck…I just want to get married to the love of my life…the rest is just icing!
@badabing88: Less complicated…I don’t think anything about a wedding can be anything less than complicated…..I’m letting it go now, trying to get back to my I don’t care state of mind…It will get better…and If not….wine will make it better! 😉
