Well Ladies, I just added up again how much this wedding is going to cost. I have been pretty ...
So we hit a super snag in our wedding planning. Even though we've been engaged since July 2009 my parents want to hold off the wedding for 3 more years.
My parents do a lot of investing since my dad is retired. Since the stock market crashes last year, my parents still haven't recovered a lot of their losses. I was always told growing up that we had funds for our weddings. My sister got married in 2008. Originally we were planning to get married in August 2010. That obviously didn't work out.
So we started saving last year so we could help with the cost of the wedding. I don't want to put off the wedding anymore. My fiancé and I don't want to elope because traditions are a big part of our families but going from 15K to 10K and then even less than that has put a huge hinderance on our dream wedding.
We put the down on our reception venue, and we are waiting to hear back from my church. I don't want to lose either venue because our date is fast approaching. I'm stressed out and I don't want to take out loans to fund the wedding because we want to buy a house soon after.
Our dwindling funds have me stressed out!
