- Wedding: May 2011
I thought i had plenty of money to work with for the wedding. Both of my parents are being very generous with their contributions so Fi and I don’t really have to pay for anything ourselves, though we have some money too so we can if necessary in case we go over.
Today i sat down to add some more things to our budget, little things that we’ve picked up since the last time i updated it (musicians for the ceremony, ushers gifts etc.) and as I was adding those things, i noticed my old total was $500 shy of our total budget!! $500!!!! that’s not enough to pay the extra musician, the ushers gifts, *the alcohol for the reception!!* (oh yea…forgot to mention, i’m really bad at this whole “planning” thing. These past two years have been a TON of fun with that!), etc.etc.!
<freak out mode> OMG WHAT AM I GOING TO DO? Oh wait… </freak out mode> i totally misread my spreadsheet. we have $5000 left! not $500. *whew*
Did i mention i suck at planning this shindig? Anyone else have incredibly stupid freakouts too? I’m dying to know i’m not the only one struggling to slap together a 1/2 decent show and getting in my own way at every step 🙂
