I will try and condense this as much as possible……
Last Feb. my best friends daughter became engaged. In March my bff passed away. I stepped up and was there for them. I asked Katie (the daughter) when her wedding date was and she said when Kyleigh was about two(their daughter) so I didn’t worry. Kyleigh is 10 months now. One month ago Katie informs me that her Fiance wants to get married now! He wants to do a courthouse deal and thats it! I knew that Katie wanted a wedding as Katie, Anita(her mom, my bff), and I had spent hours looking at dresses and talking about the wedding. Katie was going to do the courhouse wedding because Anita was not here to help her and they have no money. I know this was something she would regret. I told her this and told her if she wanted a wedding I would help her and pay for what I could. I don’t have money either but I love katie like one of my own and had to do something. We talked Fiance into giving us 30 days! We have the dress of her dreams paid for. The reception venue is paid for but it is only the room, tables, chairs and table cloths. Thats it. Cakes are also paid for. I have depleted my savings (obviously it was a small saving, about four thousand is all. I still need plates, napkins, silverware, glassed, food, drink, music, decorations! I also have no idea how I’m going to decorate for the reception since we can’t decorate/set up the night prior as the room is booked. and I will be at the park (ceremony site) helping Katie. Oh yes, I have her hair appointment and make up appointment consulted and scheduled. colors are black and white. oh lord I am really stressing out now.
I’m lookig for any thing or any help would be awesome
Thanks in advance!
