- Wedding: September 2011
Oh I am so over some aspects of this wedding (this is a bit of a rant so please forgive me, just need to rage).
Venue research has recently reached a rather large impasse. Dates are looming, season is booked, money is an issue. We found a venue recently, however, it is 4 times the amount that we originally had planned for, it is only open because of a cancellation. Options are a bit limited here right now.
However, Fiance wants to throw the budget out the window. Which, as one can imagine this has super stressed me out, we will have some large budget issues coming up after the wedding that we are aware of as well. This prompted a phone call to my mother, which I probably should have known better to do, but I did(who last time I talked to her about money at the wedding told me “if your goal is to just have the cheapest wedding, have it at the gas station”) (to make it clear, I have no problem spending money on this wedding, I just want to spend it on the right things and make sure no one in either family stresses money because of it).
She told me that no matter what I shouldn’t accept any money from my father, as he did not contribute to my sister’s wedding. My step mother had already approached me and told me that she and my dad would like to help out what the could. I certainly do not want my sister to feel badly, but I suspect that my mother’s words are more of her issues with my dad, not my sister.
I feel like Fiance isn’t helping me work on a budget that would WORK, that it is hopeless to find a venue, and as much as I am trying to ignore family politics it is getting harder and harder.
Sorry if that was rambling and sounded more like whining than anything, but its just frustrating.
