  • Congratulations and welcome! You have for sure come to the right place. These ladies have all kinds of information and are happy to share it.
  • Haha thanks Britt!  I'm gonna keep chatting in the fb group... I don't think I want to join another month board.... Ill stick with you guys :)

    FI and I decided to switch our plans because of financial reasons.  I am currently not working so we have one income.  I was supposed to start working in January and that money was supposed to go 100% towards the wedding... that plan fell through.  I have student loan debt and they took my tax return right out of my bank account, so we lost a substantial amount of wedding money there.  FI's job is 100% commission so he feels a tremendous amount of pressure in having to come up with the money himself in 7 months. He told me about the stress and pressure he was feeling so we decided this was the best option.  

    I don't even know where to start with all of this!  I am still feeling pretty overwhelmed. 
    Just to give you an idea of what I am trying to plan....  
    I am looking to do a simple beach ceremony.   Afterwards, I would like have a cocktail reception with just appetizers and drinks for everyone at a hotel/restaurant in walking distance.  I am going to stay away from anything that says "traditional wedding"  no sit down dinner, no centerpieces, bridal party...  Just a ceremony with drinks and lots of appetizers after to celebrate.  The only thing I am insisting on is having a wedding cake!
    I love south beach and am ecstatic to be getting married there.
