Hi my name is Shannon and I just got engaged and we are looking at oct of 2012 for our wedding. We live in hemet but if we can find locations in the riverside area or heading towards orange county that is fine we have fmaily that lives in the OC but we live in the Inland Empire. Both of us are college students and i'm a mother of 2. which makes things even more interesting. But our biggest thing is my oldest child is a cancer survivor. Alot of our money goes to getting my son back and forth to his appointments for oncology othopedics and every other appointment under the sun. We are trying to stay under $3000 for our wedding and this is just location and a small reception. My fiance wants me to have the wedding I've always wanted because my last wedding was a big bust. And my life has changed so much in that time. If anyone has any suggestions please feel free. i'm also trying to find tea length wedding dress and am having one heck of a time locating something thats affordable.
