I just need to talk about this, I'm so upset...
Sorry for the wall of text, I just need to get some advice and support. Let me start out by saying that my parents have been absolutely amazing and have helped us pay for half of the wedding. I have a decent paying job, my FH not so much, but he works hard and as much as he can. I recently had to get some tests done (stomach problems since I was 12) and had to miss 3 unpaid days from work. I don't have PTO yet, unfortunately.
I still have to pay for the rest of the photographer, hotel for honeymoon, flight tickets, florist, tickets for Universal (honeymoon) rent, and regular bills.
I have already cut down on food, flowers, guests, no DJ, no alcohol, and pretty much everything that I could. I know I should have saved up more, but weddings are expensive! I did not anticipate being sick, and missing those precious hours at work I needed to pay for everything
We have contemplated asking our vendors if we can pay them when we get back, pawning our personal items (xbox, tv), cash advances, and just flat out cancelling our honeymoon. (sadly, the one way flight tickets already purchased are non-refundable). My mother wants to do a "honeymoon jar" at the wedding, but I just feel like that's begging.
I know this is just a rant, but I'm so distraught, and don't know what to do. I feel like this is all my fault for not saving more.
