A friend of mine got married 3 years ago, civil ceremony, had her PPD this year now she wants to plan this over the top new Years party for 2012.
She is getting a DJ, sit down dinner, photographer- pretty much everything for a wedding just for this party.
She spent about 25k on her wedding and is willing to spend that amount again. She wants to charge people $300 to get into her party- just so she can make the money back plus get a profit.
I told her she was going through withdrawal and I think she is obsessed with planning parties.
She now wants to become a wedding planner/ event planner and is going to school for it now- the thing is she doesnt have any money for any of this. Not for college, not for throwing a party, nothing.
Does this sound like someone going through withdrawal? Does she need a kick in the face and have someone tell her to just calm down. I think it's great she's going to school, but choose scool and don't do a party.
Also her wedding wasn't great... the venue screwed up a bit, it wasn't her vision- so I think this party is a way for her to have a re do.
Should I just be supportive, sit back and watch all of this take place or try to snap some sense into her?
