Well Ladies, I just added up again how much this wedding is going to cost. I have been pretty ...
I've got just over a month until my BIG day and things are coming together nicely. Other than my lack of sleep I'm pretty proud of how much I have gotten accomplished, but I realize that this is the final stretch and crunch time is here.
Up to this point I have pretty much purchased all of the wedding items. Mainly because I research and find them. I almost always get input from Mr. C. because I realize it's his wedding too and I want him to be involved in the decision making process.
To backtrack, in the beginning of the planning process we went over how much everything would cost and he seemed ok with the prices of everything. We arent having a big extravagant wedding and I am trying to keep it under $6,000. His only issue was that we MUST have a nice honeymoon a no brainer for this travel agent :) I get great discounts from several resorts, so it wont be an issue. I figured that we could take the money that couples normally spend on the honeymoon and apply that to the wedding, thus the $6,000 budget or we would be having a $3,000 lol.
Now, with this being the time that everything is coming due, Im still footing the bill paying the caterer, the venue, the décor, Everything. We made a payment timeline, but Im the only one sticking to it.
I realize that we have A LOT going on right now with the moving, but it feels like hes the one with Bride-brain. Since Im a very non-confrontational person, Im having a hard time bringing it up and talking about it over and over again. Ill remind him to buy the rings or plane tickets or make a payment on something and get nothing. Part of me thinks that he may not really want this big of a production, but I figure this time around (2nd marriage for both of us) we should do it right and say our vows before God and make the commitment in front of our children, family and friends.
I really dont know how hard to push on this one matter. However, we can talk about anything- even the tough stuff. I just have to get the nerve up to do it. Somehow Ive got to get him to actually act on what we talk about.
