I am most looking forward to dancing with my SO and I really don’t understand going into debt to have a lavish wedding

RobynEileen:  Thanks for the new thread ๐Ÿ™‚

I don’t get a lot of the ettiquette rules that I see on here, and sometimes when posters are all “shock horror” I’m just thinking “you what, really?”. It’s made me realise that with the exception of our grandparents (one set who will be upset if we don’t marry locally, and the other who’ll be upset if I don’t invite XYZ) that my family is very relaxed about it all. Of course that doesn’t mean that everything will be stress free ๐Ÿ˜‰

I’m most looking forward to sharing our happiness with family and friends.

  • Wedding: September 2019

I’m most looking forward to walking down the aisle and seeing his expression when he sees me. Its going to be magical. 

I don’t really get engagement parties. I don’t think they are super common, but my brother had one… ehhhh. Not my thing.

  • Wedding: City, State

I would love to join as well! I am most looking forward to exchanging vows in front of friends and family, as we pledge our lives together! 

lauralaura123:  My negative was the same as yours, I don’t see the point of going into debt for a lavish wedding! There are better things to spend your hard-earned dollars on.

RobynEileen:  How did the talk go with your SO? I know your last update was that he had bought a car. You also mentioned earlier that this upcoming weekend was the last time he could propose without it interfering with school.

To follow up from the last thread, my fav is the Caro 74, but there is something about the Jeff Cooper I really really like! He has the final say on the design. I told him maybe he could find a happy medium. (Top Jeff Cooper, bottom Caro 74)

He finally agreed to do preengagement counseling. I know we communicate differently and I’d feel so much hotter going into being engaged already having gone through counseling instead of hoping we don’t hit any bumps after spending money on a ring and telling everyone. 

I think I’d be looking forward to….. the honeymoon. Does that count? Lol with all the wedding stress you can finally relax with your brand new spouse! I don’t understand bridesmaid/groomsmen/flower girl/ring bearer, grater toss, aisle runner, why everyone wants to watch the couple dance and shove cake in each others mouth. When people make fun that the groom is “trapped”, I especially hate that one.

sequinhat:  Both of those rings are gorgeous! Thanks for sharing pictures. And I agree, pre-engagement counselling can be very helpful. It gives a couple new techniques and tools for communication, and encourages discussion of important issues.

  • Wedding: December 2017 - Courthouse

I really need to get better about not mentioning weddings! I feel like I’m jinxing myself because my boyfriend knows I want to be surprised so I REALLY need to try not to mention anything! Ahh it’s so hard! 

 

And I am most excited about the honeymoon! Haha. I want to take a long European cruise. I really don’t understand weddings in general. We have already decided we are either going to elope somewhere nice or just do a courthouse wedding. But I will admit, I love being a guest at weddings. I am always the first one to cry!

RobynEileen:  Any news?

I’m starting to feel like I might not want all of the parts of a wedding that I thought I did, but we’ll see when it comes down to it.

Next weekend is when I thought it would happen but now I’m really unsure!

I am looking forward to the reception. Our group of friends really knows how to have a good time and I can’t wait to have everyone together (Our schedules don’t line up often so we never get to hang out as a large group anymore). I don’t mean to offend anyone, but I don’t get how people spend a large amount of money on certain things for the wedding. I’m super cheap and thinking about spending money on a wedding dress nearly gives me a panic attack. Like that is __ months of groceries or ___ electric bills.

MissZ31:  I think the same about money but also I’d rather spend more on a few things to get exactly what I want, and cut out things I’m not fussed about.

When I was younger (Ha, I’m only 28 now) I used to be a bit of a quantity girl, but now I favour quality every time ๐Ÿ™‚
