- Wedding: September 2014
We are insanely blessed with so many talented and generous people in our lives who are helping us throw a smallish (about 120-130 ppl) mostly family wedding.
My Dad was supposed to pay for only the big stuff (up to approx $5k) but now has been sneaky and is contributing so much more including (I think…Like I said sneaky LOL) part of our honeymoon. He could not pay for my college education as planned (my mom was diagnosed with terminal cancer my Freshman year of college so my college fund went into keeping her healthy and with us for an extra year! Wouldn’t trade it for the world!!!) My mother paid for my dress ($1K for everything including alterations) through a fund she set up before she passed.
My stepsister is our photographer and is not only gifting her time but also the prints (Crazy generous!). My FI’s BM’s Mom is doing our invites with calligraphy ( Sooo generous!). Our good friend is gifting his talent as a DJ (again so blessed!). Even our venue is being really generous and accomodating by gifting us the transportation for my bridal party and out of town guests to and from the wedding.
Like I said we are really, really blessed!
