So it's been over a year since Fiancé has asked me to marry him. the next few weeks right after were all full of excitement and joy and thoughts of wedding planning bliss...key word is thoughts. I have totally been avoiding it because of school and building up myself to become an entrepreneur and such. Now that the semester is over I didn't have the free time I thought I would because of a myriad of other obligations. But enough of the excuses! That's for another post...
I'm finally ready to start looking at some venues after getting a little nudge from my friend who got engaged a few months ago and is already booking a place for 2015. I feel a wee bit behind if I plan on having it next year. The whole process seems so daunting; especially since she told me of the prices she has been quoted for venues which was enough to make me cry; $10,000 - $25,000 just for venue and food.
Is a party to celebrate love really worth being that much in debt? (to which my answer is no, ha) Not to mention the college loans looming over our heads. After hearing that I was just about ready to call my aunt Sally in rural VA and tell her I'm having my wedding in her backyard. I did find a few contenders that fit within what I think is a fair price, so Zack and I might actually be able to look around and book a place by the end of the summer!
I'd like to here from you about your wedding or your dream wedding; was it worth it in the end? Do you think no price is too much? I'm looking to stay within about $15,000 in the state of CT. wish me luck.
