My 'hubby-to-be' and I just got engaged this past month. We are both really excited and are looking forward to everything. I know we need to decide a budget and a date...but we are finding it hard to figure those out.
The budget will be the most difficult, since I know my parents will be chipping in some money; however, I can't get an exact dollar amount. Also, according to my mom, I need to invite the entire family (list up to over 200 people...my 'immediate' family only [the ones who come to all family functions]). I know that is crazy! It's not even close to the amount of people who will be 'deemed important' and invited; if I follow my mom's ideas. This is really difficult because I do know that it will be a small budget.
Next, the date is next to impossible to figure out for us! Between work, and my grad school program, it's hard to find a date that won't be booked. I know we could wait until I am done with my grad school, but we are also trying to work it out so that he can move out of his current apartment and into a place for us. His lease is up in about 10-11 months. Any suggestions would be welcome!
