- Wedding: August 2013 - An amazing non-profit retreat
Whenever I’ve thought about my wedding, from childhood to now, I never pictured the big white wedding, the cheesy dj, bad catered food…. I’ve always pictured a casual wedding in a park, surrounded by family and friends, a potluck, flowing champagne, and kids playing nearby. My bf insists that the big wedding is important… he wants the fancy decor, the big flowers, the first dance, etc…
His wedding vision: $10,000. My wedding vision: $3,000. He says that he just wants to give me the wedding I deserve, but I can’t seem to convince him that it’s not the big wedding that I want. I’m not happy at all with the idea of waiting and waiting and waiting so he can buy a big ring and so we can drop tens of thousands of dollars on a wedding. I want to be able to go on a nice honeymoon, have freedom to still go out for dinner instead of budgeting every last thing for the one day. Am I crazy? He’s usually the practical one!!
