- Wedding: July 2011
Hi Im Libragirl/ Angie I’ve been engaged since March 2010. After the excitement of the proposal I shortly realized that I dont really care for wedding planning. I have moved twice since the proposal due to my other half’s profession. he manages apartment buildings. So I had a solid savings plan. Because we lived rent free. Whelp he was recently laid off so we now have a monthly rent payment which kills my 1k a month saving idea. Not to mention the costs of moving twice. Any who. I love wedding bee I came here from the Knot… I didnt like it there for some reason. I am a budget bride and budget is really a relative word. But somehow budget to the girls on my local board still meant 20k on a wedding. So when i asked for venue ideas I got OUTLANDISH reccomendations which made me incredibly depressed. I hated the thought of a wedding. *other half wont agree to JOP or Destination, how i wish* Anywho I feel so much better here. You guys aren’t mean.
I’ve had posts in my head for days and never registered or logged in but here goes my rant.
Wedding planning SUCKS during PMS!
I have no venue Yet. My date is July 2011..actual date subject to change for the right venue price.
I made a deposit on a dress 2 weeks after getting engaged, I went by myself. 1 month later HATED it. I purchased it because of price not because i liked it so 250 gone.
Uhmmm had 3 bridesmaids all set. 2 days ago one back out. I knew it was a stretch she lives in Houston I live here and the cost of everything would be hard on her.
My 2 maids of honors *my 2 best friends live 2 hours a way in opposit directions. One in NYC and one in Maryland. We have yet to be all together.
Uhmm I look at the July 2011 boards and what theyve done so far and just smh.. cause i got uhmmm nuthin. No dress, no real date, no venue, nadda. Oh i have some Brides Invitations that I picked up at a Marshalls in Puerto Rico when me and the other half went shortly after being engaged. Oh no engagement photos.
But I have a beautiful ring!!!
Anywhoo Hi ladies! please keep me company while I watch Steel Magnolias. Perfect PMS movie LOL
