Since I've been on. Some of it was that my firewall wouldn't let me on...
Anyway, in the mean time.... I got married!!! We were having problems saving money for the big day (2 Jul 2017). Every time we saved, we had to spend it on the kids, or on the house, or whatever. So! We decided to have a very small, backyard wedding. We invited all of our friends and had a wonderful day!! I think in total, between food, alcohol, and the tent/tables/and chairs we rented, I think we spent a total of $2k. We had a total of about 50 people come, including immediate family and close friends.
So for me, the most important things were my husband having a bit of those 'getting married' moments (seeing me walk down an aisle, having his family there etc). I felt that food, family and fun were the most important things. We told our guests to dress like they were coming to a BBQ, but that yes, we were getting married too.
So, here's some pics!!
