I’m still new here, I’ve had a couple posts and the response from everyone is amazing, this is a great place for information, support, and advice. So here is my latest problem:
My boyfriend and I have picked out the ring, and I’m leaving the rest of the proposal up to him. (I know it will be sometime VERY soon)
We want to get married fall of 2014, after we graduate College. After the wedding there is a good chance we’d be moving across the country because it’s highly likely he’ll be offered a job with intel. (he’s a computer scientist and our University has a partnership with them) This is great security for our future and it would be great to explore the country while we’re young, the only problem is paying for a wedding.
We both have jobs (20 hours a week because we’re full time students) and as of now our parents have pretty decent jobs too. I was talking with my Mom about wedding plans and she suddenly told me that it’s very probably my Dad will be laid off in the coming weeks. This is terrible news, even though they both have jobs they really need a two person income, especially with wedding costs. My older sister has had two weddings in the past 5 years, and they pretty much paid out of pocket entirely for it.
I know my FFI parents will help out, and i’m saving like crazy (for a car + wedding) because I know we have to get married after graduation, especially if we will be moving across the country.
I just wanted some advice on planning a medium-large wedding ( I have an GIANT family) on a very tight budget.
Let me know any tips and tricks you used, I could use all the advice you lovely bees could give me!
Thank you so much!
