@kittyfinn:  I’m about 10 years over 25 but what’s helpful is not to compare your lives to others.  Even now I still have to tell myself that on a daily basis.  Whatever you can do, wherever you can go, enjoy it for you and your Fiance, not because someone else is doing it.

  • Wedding: July 2013

Awww I hope everything will work out for you, it is YOUR wedding, I am sure the bridal party will manage to get along for this one day, at least I hope they will. I also have two bridesmaids that dont like each other, one is my sister in law and the other is a very close friend. Sometimes I wish i could just take it all back and elope too. I dont like being the center of attention, we just started planning my bridal shower, and the thought makes me so nervous, dont know what Im going to do at the wedding lol!!! I definetely can not afford a honeymoon either, so maybe we will save for a trip and go for our one year anniversary. Gives us something to look forward to. I hope everything ends up working out for you, I keep thinking I am in an awful situation, but theres always someone got it worst no matter how bad you have it, best of luck!

  • Wedding: December 2014

I don’t know if this will be helpful at all, but maybe?

I’m 22, my Fiance is 24, and we literally just figured out our wedding plans and set a date. It’s December 20th, 2014, and we’re doing it at Sandals Jamaica.

Here’s our reasoning- our budget will be about $7000. Our family lives all over the country. No matter where we held a wedding, everyone would have to travel, and $7000 doesn’t go far towards a venue, food, photography, etc. If we were doing a traditional wedding, I’d want to do it right- and I’m not a DIYer. Plus, we want a honeymoon!!! That’s just not going to happen if we blow all of our money on the wedding.

At Sandals Jamaica, we can stay 8 nights, all inclusive, for $3500. Seriously. If we get 10 rooms filled with guests, the wedding is free. Now, it’s not going to be a big fancy affair- just a ceremony and an hour long reception with hors’doeuvres and sparkling wine. Plus there are some other small perks, like manicure for bride and massage for groom, private dinner the night before, etc. So, let’s say we throw $1000 towards tasteful, small, upgrades, and $2000 in flights- that’s $6500. 

I don’t know what your budget is like, but if it’s anything like mine, this might be a viable option for you!!! We’re basically “eloping,” but with only our closest friends and family. It’s actually exponentially more affordable for us to get married in Jamaica- even if it seems extravagent. 

Something to think about?
