First of all, breathe. πŸ™‚

Secondly, could you perhaps follow through with the arrangements you’ve already paid for and then do the rest of your wedding at a cheaper cost than you anticipated? Darling Husband and I were really broke when we got married, and we were able to achieve our dream wedding with less than $3,000, even with 150 guests! And no, we didn’t feed them only crackers. Haha πŸ™‚

Do you have friends and family who could help you pull it off with a bit more DIY than you had perhaps originally planned?

Are the deposits refundable? It sounds like you might be better off doing a courthouse ceremony and an intimate dinner with close friends and family, maybe save the big wedding for a vow renewal. Big weddings and parties are nice, but you shouldn’t be feeling financial stress because of a wedding.

Well, while I can’t tell you what to do month twin, what I can say is there are many other bees who are here. Some go forward and make it work, some downscale, some put it off.

But I understand wanting to be married more than anything and not wanting to put it off any  longer! And it sounds like you didn’t run into this thing half cocked, your ducks were in a row.

So I’m sending you good vibes and hugs to your corner of Ohio. I  hope you can keep your date and get the wedding you want.

You mentioned Christmas, as well. I think your friends and family will be understanding if you don’t make a huge ordeal out of gifts this year being that you have so much to pay for. Try making gifts; a knitted scarf or an intimate scrapbook will mean a lot more than a gift card anyways!
