I am completely feeling overwhelmed with the wedding planning process and I haven't even gotten started. Of course we haven't even begun to set things in stone yet because I am just browsing at the pricing for everything and thinking to myself, "How the hell am I supposed to afford this?" Even having a small wedding really has things starting to add up- We our paying for our wedding ourselves. How is everyone else affording such an expensive day? Am I the only one asking if this is really even worth it? One day at roughly 15k and thats low balling it- Is it worth it to put ourselves further into debt. My parents are not in the best of health so I feel like if i want a wedding they are present at this needs to happen sooner rather than later, I've always wanted a wedding. I'm the kind of girl that doesn't want to miss out on the wedding experience of the dress with the flowers. My family doesn't get very many joyous occasions to celebrate so I would love a wedding but the money has me stressing and taking all of the excitement out of it. I don't think any of my other friends would understand what I am going through right now and even though the fiance is being supportive I am not sure what I should do... its just a bummer how much things sky rocket for one day. Any one have some tips or any advice?
