- Wedding: April 2014
Posted this in the wrong section before.
Relieved in a good way though. Sorry if this turns out to be long.
So, back in early 2011 Fiance and I talked about where we want our permanent residence to be. We had settled upon Charleston, SC, he used to live there, its closer to his mother, and personally I will live anywhere but where we are now. He spoke to his boss about the steps for a relocation would be and his boss said he would put in a good word in the Charleston office and would get back to him. Well of course after not hearing anything for a long time we went on with our wedding plans. Stressful wedding planning..but ill get into that in a bit. Well just today his boss tells Fiance that if he is still interested in the relocation then the Charleston office offered him a position and would like him there by the new year. Talk about we were ecstatic!
And then we talked about what we would do as far as wedding planning. A move from St Louis to Charleston, SC is expensive enough. We brought up a lot of options that still involved the wedding
1. Accept the job, move to Charleston and have a smaller wedding in our new hometown (mind you the guest list was already small)
2. Accept the job, move to Charleston and elope
3. Accept the job move to Charleston and postpone the wedding a year so we can still have the wedding that we want to have
4 Do not accept the job, stay in St. Louis, and carry on as normal with wedding plans for New Orleans.
Basically we will opt for anything other than option 4 but we are leaning towards option 3.
Now to why we were both kind of relieved. I am just now barely a year out from the date we want to get married and Ive dealt with nothing but stress for the last, say, 3 months. Not on speaking terms with one of my sisters, finding a dress is hell, my family really doesnt care about the wedding and neither does his (thats why the eloping sounds so sweet).
So in a nutshell we are so excited about the move, this is where we wanted to live but didnt want to just up and move with no job security behind us.
Im relieved and sad about the wedding stuff, but I feel that getting our kids who are about to be school aged set up in the permanent residence is a tad more important…right?
