Wedding Confessions

Ahhh Wednesday. Nice to see you finally get here. It's been a long week. Since I've hardly blogged, I figured today would be the day to actually have some substance of some sort. And it's Wednesday so I'm linking up with Cathy. Duh

These confessions will be about weddings and whatnot today. I'm trying really hard not to talk about it too much but it's so hard not to.

- I don't get how people plan weddings. I'm serious. How do you even know where to start?

- I just want to wake up and have it all planned out for me just the way I like it. I'm too indecisive for all of this.

- This sounds selfish and bratty but I don't really care. I want our wedding to be what the ideal wedding of my dreams looks like, because I'm only doing this once. And I don't think that's it's actually possible to pull it off. I don't want it to be extravagant by any means but dammit, I want an elegant, classy affair. That is, until our friends get wasted and turn back into pumpkins their normal selves.

- I really just want to go dress shopping already. I'm the person who's planned their wedding for years and years. The dress will be beautiful. I haven't even attempted to shed some of my extra baggage I'm carrying around so I know it's not wise. Plus, we haven't even set a date so buying a dress right now would be silly.

And I'm also gonna link up with Amanda and Danae because Blake said the stupidest thing to me the other night.

I finally got him to talk about our wedding. And I started where one should obviously. I asked him what he thought our budget should be. He said relatively cheap. Well that's no help. So I said "what's relatively cheap to you because it might be different to me?" His reply....$2000. Yup, my lovely finace said he wants our wedding to be no more than $2000. Cue instant bratty attitude from me trying to explain to him how much we would have to spend on certain things if we had that budget. Like the fact that his tux could only cost $12. Or that, we only had $20 to spend on our rings. Lord help me. We may not be married for awhile.

- One more confession, if he sticks to this, we might just elope. Unfortunately.

1) ain't nothing wrong with eloping :)

2) if you decide on a traditional wedding, book the venue (or caterer), photographer, church and dress first. everything else can wait

3) you can forgo the real profesh photographer and hire a newbie profesh photog. they're looking to build their portfolio and won't charge as much

4) make everything....invites, save the dates, bridesmaids dresses...that saves you tons of $$. go to new hair dressers (who won't charge as much), same with make up artsist or do your own.

and blog about your wedding if you want! it's your blog, you do what you want :)

thanks for linking up!

haha i dont mean to laugh, but that story about $2k hilarious. my hubby didnt want to spend more than $1k.
sigh. if i could go back and do it over, i absolutely, 100% would do what i wanted and go to a courthouse and then to dinner with my nearest and dearest. seriously, the actual day + night itself was amazing but the leading up to it, the planning - worst time of my life. people butt in like never before, everyone gets nasty, everyone takes everything personally, you're bound to forget something or someone.. uch. seriously. i hope that your family and in laws and friends do not make this stressful for you, im sure it will be amazing! just stick with what YOU want and you will be fine.

Oh man... he might need to add another zero to that budget!

Stephanie said...

haha we're opposite! Not that John and I are engaged, but he's made it clear he wants a big expensive wedding with me in a poofy white dress and I'm all STOP WASTING BUCKETS OF MONEY ON A ONE DAY PARTY when we can just elope in Vegas and I can wear something trashy and flip flops. I suck at being a girl sometimes.

I don't think I could plan a wedding. I don't have the patience for color schemes and all of that. I just got married in a courthouse.

Amanda - Voyage of the MeeMee said...

The thought of planning a wedding makes me cringe. Pete and I will probably end up eloping.
And I'm dyyyying at his idea of a budget! bahahahah

Kerry @ Till Then Smile Often said...

That is a really low budget!! I totally want a small intimate wedding if I ever get married but even that is too low.

Amanda Elizabeth - Meet @ the Barre said...

Don't worry all men say the same thing....Mark didn't want to spend money on a wedding either that's why we made it for well over a year away so we can save little by will all work out!

Lmao at the $2,000 budget! I'm a cheap-ass at heart but when it comes to something as important as, oh, the first day of the rest of your life together - I say fuck the budget, let's get crazy! Lol.

So glad to find another blogger on the wedding-planning path! We can compare notes! Hahaha. Oh, and I printed this planner to help me get started with the whole thing. Maybe it'll help you too:
