That would be really frustrating :-/ We are doing Destination Wedding too to save on money and hassle, I dont know what we’d do if that fell through…

@JLR1982:  I know exactly how you feel. Fiance and I were planning a Destination Wedding in Vegas. Which we are still having. But we were told by his parents that if we don’t get married locally we HAVE to have an engagement party — which will be about 200 people, so its basically a wedding reception. I’m still not a fan of this and hate the idea of having the attention of 200 people on me, for even 2 mins.

The engagement party is a big expense and I feel bad that both of out parents are shelling out all this cash. If it were up to us to fork out 15-18k this party would not be happening.

We’ve had to go through picking out a band, center pieces, the meal, invitations, and soon we’ll have to do a seating chart, engagement photos and etc. All the things we were planning on skipping have (and will soon have to be) done.

I just want to get it all over with, so we can look forward to our wedding in Vegas. The way we want to do it.

Just try your best to enjoy the process, as much as its stresses me (& FI) out, It has been more fun then I expected.. Once I send out our invites (The end of Aug!) I think I’ll feel like everything thats in my control will be 99% done!
