After living together for 8 years we have decided to get married. I could be happy going to court and getting married but my husband wants to fly to Puerto Rico and make a wedding with everything with all the family. I’m going crazy because I’m trying to work with a little budget and planning everything from Massachusetts. We have decided the colors: red, black and white. We also know we are going to do the ceremony and reception in my in-law’s back yard. They have a big back yard in the country side and you can see the ocean from it. We are planning to rent a 20×40 tent because we are trying to plan a small wedding (50 or less). I’m stuck!!!! I NEED IDEAS, I NEED HELP… I NEED TO KNOW WHAT I SHOULD DO… I NEED A LOT OF STUFF. I love my partner, we planned the wedding years ago but had to canceled it because my daughter was really ill and we used the money from the wedding to pay the hospital bill were she spend over one year. Today im blank… i need help… ADVICE
