Frustrated, my Fiancé and I can’t seem to get started making any plans or decisions on our wedding / honeymoon and it’s getting to me.
I’m lucky that she doesn’t want or need a huge wedding and is open minded, but we still want it to be special and nice. She can only get off work in the fall and spring so we are thinking March 2014. We don’t have a lot of friends/ family and we are on a tight budget so we were thinking either elope or destination wedding or do something small and leave for honeymoon, or elope and throw a party in the back yard later on the following summer or something.
Her family is happy for us and all but they haven’t shown any interest in helping us with money or planning. My family is hard up for money too, my Mother has offered us the use of her Timeshare club exchange through RCI, if anyone if familiar, basically we can have one or two weeks someplace in the catalog of resorts for our honeymoon, and my Sister has offered us her Airline miles, so that will probably get us there if we choose to take it.
So the question is how should we proceed? Should we just book the honeymoon and figure out the rest later?
Right now we are looking at this place in Mexico that looks just ok.
But we want luxury there are better places than these above but the better places are all inclusive, but I feel like the all-inclusive places are a rip off, most of them want an extra $200 – $450 a day per person and we don’t even drink really 🙁
Am I being too picky? or cheap?
Can and should we just get married at the resort?
We also were thinking about a Caribbean cruise and just let the cruise line do everything and marry us. We could invite our close family and if they come they come and if they don’t then no biggy right.
I don’t know what would be better. We don’t want to cook, we want to relax and be pampered, I don’t want to be pressured to buy anything like a condo or whatever they do.
