I work part time (full time isn’t an option) and am already paying 40% of my take-home on debt repayment. He is just finishing up some financial problems. I just had who knows how many thousands of uncovered health expenses last week with a heart scare (I’m fine!). The barrier for me is the reception.  There’s a place I’d love to have it but the rental would add $500 to our reception bill. There are a couple restaurants in the area (it’s a small coastal town) who could do our reception in-house, which would probably save us lots of money. Still have to check into it, and still waiting for the Proposal…we are continuing to talk about our relationship and our future. Sigh. Good news: the venue I love is only $60 (an adorable, tiny, historic church that holds 60) and I’m sure we can get a friend to be ordained and be the officiant for free. Maybe his folks want to pay for the dinner?Best of luck to you.

I’m right there with you. I’m ready to get married, but financially I’m not sure what we are going to have to work with. I’m not going to think about it yet…. and see what happens when we talk to the fams.  My fam won’t be able to contribute but I think his “might”.  We’ll see

My mom has already said she is paying and my SO is so in debt and lost his job a month ago that he cant afford a ring right now which is the only reason we arent engaged.

  • Wedding: December 2012

Yay! How exciting. I also thought I’d have a massive 150 person wedding, but now I think I want a more intimate celebration with our nearest and dearest. Although this the size of our families, and how close we all are, it will still be around 100 people. Sigh.
