I don’t know how much this will be but I have been stressing out about where and how I will get married. Right now my fiance and I will have a living room elopment with his grandfather ordaining us in November. We wanted to do this because we want his grandparents to be a part of us getting married and due to health reasons they cannot really leave their house. But I don’t want to give up my dream in having an actual wedding ceremony and with my family (my family won’t be there because I live in Texas and his family lives in Ohio).
The plan is to have a ceremony after I graduate from my undergrad. I just don’t know where- most of my family is in California or Arizona whereas his Family is in Ohio and Kentucky. A part of me wants a small intimate wedding (because I feel like most people woudn’t come and because of costs) but I want a traditional-ish wedding. A wedding with an recption and feel like there should be at least 20-50 people there for that to work out. (Is that odd?)
I’m a college student and we both don’t have a lot of money so I’m very limited. There is no way I could do a big fancy wedding like you see everywhere. I am just with a simple woodland/DIY wedding . I’ve thought about holding a reception at a church that I grew up in my hometown as seperate from my intimate wedding but I still don’t know. I know in life you can’t get what you want but this one things I’ve always looked forward too. (Never been to prom, never had a high school graduation ((I did online school)) and I missed out on a lot of things I feel like everyone else experiences).
Can anyone relate? Or has any advice? I know I just rambled.. Needed to get some stress off my chest. I so badly want to start planning a reasonable wedding but I can’t even start when I don’t know where to even begin! I don’t even know where I could have it.
