I know that in life, weddings and babies bring on all sorts of unwanted and unneeded advice and opinions.
My fiance is a teacher, and for those of you who aren't teachers or in a relationship with one, it is hard. He works 10-13 hour days 9 months a year, our weekends are shared between games, grading, and dates. If we want to vacation, we can only do it when he already has time off because he's basically not allowed days off. And when your job gives you tons of freedom, it's a tough balancing act, one in which his job always win. I'm still adjusting to this whole, I'm a bride thing, but the one thing I've always known is that I want a winter Michigan wedding. But alas, I'm marrying a teacher so it can only be in December if he wants any time off.
However, I've recently had a couple people close to me tell me that while I should do what I want, that December weddings are rude due to financial stress that comes with Holiday Season.
I know technically, it's all about what I want, but truly what I want is throw a reception that our friends and family love.
