I'm so excited I just had to share with everyone! FH and I have been stressing over when we can get married. Everyone wants to see us married and it would make way more sense financially to just get married (we're both still in school). We really want to get married this summer but it was just not looking good. We are still not sure we'll be able to afford it, but we now have hope! Our biggest expense was going to be the photog. The venue is free (our church), the officiant probably won't accept the money we try and pay him (he is our pastor and has becoming a very close friend), and my FMIL is making the dress so I'm only paying for materials. After spending hours on here yesterday(I should have been studying but I'm a great procrastinator!) I found a recommendation for a local photog that I hadn't heard of before. Long story short we found a photog, whose work we like, for under $500!!!! We had originally budgeted $1500 and it was going to be hard to pull off. But now I feel like this wedding is so much more doable!
