Last night, I booked our honeymoon cruise to the caribbean. Yes, I wanted a european cruise instead but FI wouldn't settle for anything but Indigo. This past few months, we've been trying to put money down for our first home. But each time, we feel like we've reached a starting point, another deposit has to be done or another vendor needs to be paid. So...this morning, I said, why not cancel our DW wedding and have a surprise wedding here?!?! We are friends with a manager of a restaurant here. The restaurant has a beautiful rooftop in Santa Monica. We can invite people for an engagement brunch and have a short and sweet ceremony right then and there.
I never wanted a fancy wedding...thats why i wanted to go to hawaii. All i wanted was our families there. Times are tough right now. FI and I are lucky to be in stable fields...but for our families, it's not so great. So is it wrong of me to present this idea to my FI? would it be wrong of me to do this now?? we are still 6 months out.
