Well, I have been thrown in a loop last night and could not sleep at all! My dad may be layed off at the end of March due to downsizing from this new health care law. Part of me think he won't be layed off, but the other part of me think he just might be. When I was talking to my mom she was crying her eyes out telling me how bad she feels that they can't help out with the wedding because they have to save every penny they have. Which I understand and I want them to save their money. My dad has a military retirement which pays all the bills, but its going to be really tight for them. So I told my mom not to worry about it and the back of my mind I was thinking "Oh crap!"
So now, I have to buy my own wedding dress and I was playing around the idea of breaking down and actually doing catering and renting table clothes, but now that is out of the window. My fiance and I can cater if we really want too, but we are trying to pay off bills so we are more financially secure when I student teach.
So, the plan was the have sandwiched (the cocktail bun kind with real ham and turkey, not the lunchmeat kind) cheesy potatoes, corn, different salads, taco dip, chilli or some sort of soup and the other side things that you usually see at a reception. We are not having booze due to my fiance's family not being able to control themselves.
Now, with the table clothes. We are buying the nice plastic plates from Sams, the ones that look like class and as well as the drinking cups. My colors are brown, burgundy, and ivory. I have silk burgundy flowers already purchased. I am thinking I just should use plastic table clothes, but I was also thinking about using burlap.
Our wedding is on two o'clock in the first weekend of October, at an old farm stead with the barn converted into a dance hall.
Need some help and advice.
