First of all, congratulations!! It sounds like you are engaged to a wonderful guy and your wedding will be absolutely lovely!

Secondly, you sound like you have a great head on your shoulders and have accepted what will be and what won’t be. I’m sorry that you do not have the support that most people have during this time. I hope you and your future husband have a beautiful ceremony and a long, happy life together! I know your intimate wedding (ours was as well–under 25 people and I wouldn’t have changed a thing), will be everything you want and you will be surounded by people who love you and wish only the best for you! 😀

Congratulations!  And welcome to the Bee 🙂  My SO and I are also paying for everything ourselves, except we didn’t really hear it from our families before we decided.  We just expect it based off of our parents’ habits and how they currently support (or don’t support) us.

Nonetheless, neither of us want a big wedding… but we’re still renting out a venue for the evening for the ceremoney and reception.  Our budget is about $6k, and we plan on about 30 people being there.  It just suits us 🙂

Happy planning, and I hope you two find a plan that both of you can be excited about!
