- Wedding: September 2012
For petes sake. I think my Fiance is testing my sanity! lol.
Our wedding was originally suppose to be April 21st (2012), but some things happened with his job and we pushed it to June 15th.
Fiance is a truck driver. Up until the end of this month he just has his permit and is running with a friend of ours and getting experience in. I have been waiting and WAITING for the day he gets his CDL… which is going to be the next time hes home. (end of the month)
Now he is telling me that everyone is telling him not to branch out on his own at the begining of the slow season because he might get himself into a rut money wise. Which I totally understand, and appreciate their advice. Just one problem. Staying where he is- driving with our friend- does not bring in enough money to pay for the wedding. (around $8000)
The good news is.. the ONLY thing I have my deposit on is my dress. So much has gone wrong with planning this wedding that I have been too scared to really book anything because I’m afraid its all going to get ruined.
His dad was suppose to help us with our deposit on our venue and that fell through, and on top of that he has told us he will give us $5000 in Feb/March towards the wedding, but no offense to him- I’m not holding my breath on that.
I kind of want to just go elope and not tell anyone what we are doing, but Fiance is like “my sister did that and I won’t do it to my family” “cant we just push it back?”
I have felt sad and disappointed since like early yesterday evening. I thought it would go away when I went to bed (because normally thats how it works) but I still feel that way this morning. Almost like I want to cry. Normally I’m super happy-go-lucky.
I know that it’s not the end of the world to push it back, and I’m not going to be losing out on deposits and stuff so thats not a big deal. Its just the fact of the matter. Plus the wedding isn’t the only thing its effecting… So I think that’s making it worse too.
I was thinking about trying to get a second job and just pay for it myself!? Maybe that would work.
blah! thanks for listening to me whine a little.
