- Wedding: September 2012
This is my first post so let me start out by saying hello!!
My fiance Rob proposed to me in November while we were on vacation visiting my parents (story and pictures to come!) and every since then I have been in wedding planning mode. Although I have ran into a few bumps or should I say road blocks.
My parents are giving us $8000 to do with what we will. Run off to Vegas? Ceremony and reception? It is up us. So I’ve run into . . . do something very small and pocket the rest or have what I’ve wanted for so long (but how?? $8000 for ceremony and reception around Chicago????). Mr. Firestarter’s mom said to wait until after the holidays and she will let us know what she can contribute. So my budget is let’s say $10,000.
Here are a few options we’ve considered. . .
The big ceremony and reception at a vineyard
A small wedding in North Georgia in the mountains (where he proposed!)
get married with just our parents and our MOH/BM somewhere tropical.
