- Wedding: May 2013
Usually on something like this I would go anonymous but I get married in 9 days (eek!) and I just don’t care.
We had everything for our wedding beautifully planned. The cake, the decorations, dress, food, favors, all of it, I was so excited! Now, it just hasn’t gone as planned. I’m still excited about getting married, do not get me wrong!
We have already taken care of the big stuff for this wedding i.e. food, cake, dress tuxes etc. It’s the details, the decor, the favors that are no longer happening. We had some major financial problems come up within the past 2 months that have hurt our monthly income tremendously. I don’t wish to go into details but let’s just say we have lost nearly $1300 of our monthly income. Most of which was to go to paying for the details of the wedding. We had been paying for stuff out of each of our paychecks and now just don’t have it to cover the rest of expenses. We are still getting married. Like I said it’s only the little things such as the rest of the decor, the small favors, (of which i still hadn’t decided on so it did help me make a decision, just nto the one I wanted) our beautiful honeymoon suite at the hotel we are getting married at, that sort of thing.
I guess what I’m trying to figure out, is that okay? Is it okay that I won’t have beautiful decor, just some fake flowers in a vase with water? Is it okay that my guests won’t get any favors? I still plan to send them beautiful thank you cards with our photo in them.I just feel like it should be more. Is it okay that instead of a beautiful suite to spend our wedding night in it will probably be just a hotel room with a jacuzzi tub and half a continental breakfast, lol.
Like I said all majors have been paid for, photog, DJ, food, venue, cake, dress and alterations, tux, even a keg of beer and the champagne toast. It’s just the small details I see all over these boards and silly pinterest, it makes me feel that my wedding won’t be…good enough.. for lack of a better term.
I am so happy to marry my Fiance and I cannot wait to be his wife, take his name and finish out this wonderful life we have together in wedded bliss and I know that’s the important part, my wedding just seems like it will be lacking… I don’t know, silly woe is me post I guess. Thanks for reading if you made it this far. 🙂
