So I just might have made one of the most grown-up, responsible decisions to date......We have completely changed our wedding plans and hopefully with this change it will save us about $10,000 (or more). I've been bouncing ideas around for quite some time but just recently decided to voice them and when it comes right down to it.........It just doesn't sit well in my stomach that we were going to spend such a large amount on the wedding. We've got a new house and our project list for improvements keeps getting bigger and bigger as we find more ways to build equity. I think I would rather take the money we would have spent on the wedding and put it into home improvements. Some of you may think I'm crazy, but I've got to do what feels right for me (and Don).
So as of last night........we have decided against the grand hotel, crystal chandeliers and ballroom that takes your breath away. Instead we are going to have an outdoor, down-to-earth, more casual event. Even up to the last minute I wasn't sure if this decision was right, but when I woke up this morning and felt like the earth had been removed off my shoulders I knew this was the right thing to do.
If it's even possible......I'm even more excited for our wedding today, then I've been the past 8 months since we've been engaged! I'm proud of Don and I for having the courage to stand up and do what is best for US........
