Wedding Update

So I figured something out the other day after visiting our very first venue...Wedding's cost a shat load of money and we don't have any of that green stuff sooo...No Daddy Warbucks in our back pockets to help so I've just stopped planning. I just don't see a wedding happening.

Something in me just kind of fell apart. My heart dropped when I started adding up the numbers and then it hit me. We really can't afford a wedding. It's kind of sad. I needed to get that off my chest though because it's going to hurt every time someone asks me when the wedding is. I don't know. I won't know. Maybe a couple years after we've been able to save.

I don't know when I'll be able to resume stuff...maybe we'll save for a year or so and then decide. I'm a bit jaded and upset about the whole thing. I got so excited when we decided to start planning and now that all those plans are silly nonsensical dreams I'm crushed. Whatever girly girl I was starting to conjure up is over and done with.

Jersey's trying really hard to keep my spirits up. He's still on the prowl for inexpensive shortcuts, but I keep reminding him we could get shave here and there and we still wouldn't have the money in savings to make it happen.

The funny thing is once I made this decision all I see or hear is wedding crap. Ryan Reynolds and Blake Lively throwing a surprise wedding made my ass twitch. I wish I had that kind of cash floating around where I could just hire someone spur of the moment to put together a shindig. We're going to a wedding soon and I'll probably bawl my frickin eyes out.

If you've managed to get hitched and were able to have a ceremony and reception pat yourself on the back and then go kiss your spouse because you're lucky. You're already ahead of poops like me.


  1. nothing happens over night girl. Plan a little here and plan a little there and in time you will have it all done, paid and ready for you to walk down the isle!

  2. It was hard, but we managed to pull it off all on our own on the cheap. We had to do a TON of searching for the best deals. And it doesn't happen over night. We saved up until the day of the wedding! I'm sure some people would turn up their noses at some of the choices we made, but in the end we were happy and that's what matters.

    In the end though, it was perfect for us and yours will be too. I know exactly how you feel. Don't throw in the towel yet!

  3. oh no!
    i'm sad to hear you say this!

    i really hope that you can find a way to honor and celebrate your love.

    My marriage is so much better than my wedding/reception was.
    I'm just glad it's not the other way around. :)
    we got engaged in May and married in July...of the same year! Mormons are funny that way) So you can imagine with that kind of timeline we didn't fit the sterotype that magazines and websites advocate, haha.

    Anyway, I wish I had an awesome answer or useful tip, but just know that I'm thinking about ya, and hope that your spirits will lift and your creative wedding juices will start to flow again! :)


    1. I like the part about your marriage being better than the wedding...:) Great perspective!
