    What is a "buy as you go" wedding?

    I don't fit any of those criteria, I'm just curious.

    Pretty sure "buy as you" is you buy what you can for the wedding, when you can.

    Hi smj...no kids here but I'm 24 and am having a small wedding and can definitely relate to FMIL problems...oh that lady drives me bonkers!

    ME ME ME omg did i type this post LOL
    i'm 23

    i have and 3 yo girl and FI has a 10 yo boy (they both live with us FULL time) and  he also has a 3 yo boy here everyother week

    i'm having a small outdoor wedding (45 people) in 1month 5 days. i don't work so i started watching a few kids so we could pay for it.
    i planned the whole thing myself and i'm not really sure how it's going to turn out...hopefully beautiful but i'm scared cause i really didn't think there was too much to plan.

    AND i really thought my FMIL liked me until our huge fall out in july and now she hates me and is no longer having anything to do with us including not coming to our wedding

    I can definitely sympathize with not knowing what the HELL I'm  doing lol. Don't want to pay for a wedding planner so I'm just "flying by the seat of my pants" hope it doesn't backfire on me in the end Frown

    I'm kinda in the same boat!

    I have 2 kids (ages 7 & 2) and FI has 2 kids (ages 8 & 10).  We are gonna have a small wedding and we're buying stuff as we can.  And I will be shopping at WalMart and everywhere else I can find cheap stuff!  I have no idea what I'm doing...just trying to pretend like I do.  And I don't have a problem with my FMIL it's my mother that I am having the problems with!

    All four of our precious babies!!

    No kids
    ~having a buy as you go small wedding
    Yes, I still have no dress, theirs no tux yet and I just buy what I can afford at the moment and I'm still saving, we're only expecting about 10people
    ~ not knowing what your doing what so ever lol
    Absolutely
    ~ feeling very overmwelled
    Yeah I feel like I'm doing twenty things at once, on my own, and just hoping for the best
    ~Not having the best relationship with the MIL
    My future MIL died before I met my FI so I never had a relationship with her. But I've been in contact with FI's stepmom and she's alright, aside from insulting my niece, I believe unintentionally, during our first conversation.

    Hey there bride to be!

    Everyone has their own unique situation. The most important thing is that you are marrying the love of your life. You don't have to have an elaborate wedding, just do what you can and enjoy your day. I wish you the best!! :-)

    I'm another one who feels like I could have wrote this post.

    im 24 with a 3 year old. We just got engaged in July and arnt getting married till nov 2011, but we thought with the date so far away we would have some time to save, not at all the case in Central Florida. So we will be buy as we go too. :)

    I do feel overwhelmed but I think that once the check is written for the venue and i have the date it will be easier from there ( fingers crossed)

    My FMIL and I started out rocky but me and FI have been together 5 years and honestly now she is the person I turn to for help and advice for most things( wedding planning is no longer one of them since she is hellbent on catering my wedding LOL )

    Your not alone :)
