36 days til the wedding and I'm regretting even planning this thing. We should have just had a small simple thing at the nursing home in the garden with my grandma present with the family. But no somehow I got talked into spending money we don't have on this wedding. Yes it could be hormones talking since af just arrived but seriously why spend all this money on a wedding when you could have easily just did a simple jop in the garden? I mean for 100 people invited to the wedding catering is $1,500. Photographer is $900. Cupcakes $350. My dress $250 without alterations that are not done. Decorations $500. Flowers $600. Df doesn't have his tux or suit. Flower girls have their dresses, thank god for employee discounts, ring bearer doesn't have his. My mom doesn't have her outfit. Df's mom isn't even coming. There are many more things I could go on about but seriously our budget is $5000. We are almost there. Not to mention that our registry emailed me saying "sorry but there are items on your registry that no longer exist. Please delete these items." Well I looked into these items and it was 50 out of my 80 items. So I had to re do my registry. Also my wedding ring was stolen 6 months ago and no claim could be filed so now I have to find a new one.
Sorry I don't mean to sound so bitter about the wedding. Im looking forward to it but I'm just at a loss for why couldn't we just have done the simple route?
