Wedding anxiety


Eloping is sounding better and better with every new outrageously expensive wedding bit I look at. Geez, all I want is to marry the man I love. That's it. I don't want to put on some big elaborate show and entertain my guests for hours. I'm not feeding you anything but cake, so just get over that right now. Heck, I might not even have favors. It's just so FREAKING expensive!! Seriously, people in the wedding business should be down right ashamed of themselves. Especially photographers. I mean really. When you charge upwards of eight hundred to a thousand, if not two, I really don't know how you sleep at night. You're robbing me blind here!! To make it worse, my parents and his parents are going to try to pay for it. Well, neither one have much money at all. When you add in that my family is going to be helping support my brother in his paternal endeavors, I really would rather not put this extra strain on them. His mom is a single woman of somewhat meager means. Neither Daniel or I have much money. Okay, we have somewhere around 5 dollars... maybe.


I seriously start to panic when I even think about it. This is not the wonderful wedding experience I dreamed of and heard about from friends. I just get literally nauseated thinking about it. I don't want to do it anymore. I just want to marry him. That's all. That's it.


Why not elope, you ask? Well, my friends would be hurt(they've informed me of this much), my family would be upset (a few of them have also informed me of this), and I can only imagine how his mom is going to feel what with Daniel being her only son.


Oh hello rock, I didn't see you there.


And oh my, what is that? Could it be a hard place. I think so!!

I am so sorry love. I know how you feel. It is a bit overwhelming. You will come through with it. As far as photography...do you know anyone just starting out? A lot of new photographers like to charge very little so they can build up their portfolio. Who takes pics for Calvary Hill? See if you can get ideas...I am sure someone there is/knows a photographer.
As far as food...girl, cake is all you need. Especially if you have it during the day. People don't expect anythinga nd if they do, they are dumb. :D I didn't have favors. I think they are a nice way to say thanks, but it is just another thing to spend money on. Check out ebay for decorations. They have lots of stuff.
Let me know if I can help you find anything, ok?
Love you!

I'm sorry it is so stressful Emma. Let me know if there is anything that I can do to help. I love you Em and if I come down before your wedding, I will do what I can to help. :) I am so excited that you are getting married!
