Should we have a wedding?
Question by bluedreams1810: Should we have a wedding?
My fiance & I have been together for almost 7 years. We’ve been engaged since Sept. We’ve planned this whole wedding for May 2009, we’ve put down $ 2000 on our vendors. For the wedding we will still owe $ 6000. We also wanted to go on a really nice honeymoon, which is going to cost an additional $ 6000. I lost my job 3 months ago and now we are just getting by paying our bills. I’m worried we will not have enough money for our wedding. We’ve thought about doing something more low key at a family member’s house, but to caterer it and the tent and table rentals, it’s still somewhat expensive. I just really wanted to have a small nice wedding/reception where I can wear a wedding dress and have close friends and family there and a photographer, but I can’t seem to find anywhere or be coming up with any ideas. We really want to get married by May, but we really can’t afford what we originally planned. Any suggestions?
-Neither of us have very big families.
-Probably only about 30 people would even attend our wedding.
-We really want to make sure we can afford our honeymoon. I almost rather have that.
-The most important parts for me are me being in a nice wedding dress, fiance in a nice tux, a nice background for the ceremony, and a photographer to document it all.
-We live in southern PA.. if anyone knows of any local spots in Gettysburg, Hanover, Harrisburg, or even in Northern MD.

One thing you could do is to go on and plan your honeymoon and budget for that first since you said that the honeymoon is really important to you. Then, you can figure out how much money you could comfortably spend after that. That way, you could know exactly how much money you can spend on the actual wedding and reception without sacrificing the honeymoon that you really want. That could kind of determine how big of a wedding and reception you would have.
