I'm Getting Married!


This Christmas goes down in history as the best one ever. Not only did I get a Wii Fit I got a Fiance. They are so close, I don't know which one is better. Not really, the Fiance is soooo much better.

My boyfriend, now fiance, decided to show up a day earlier then expected. And on that early day he proposed. So we are now getting married! So excited!!

To add to the wonderful holiday season we went on a cruise to the Bahamas over Christmas. The weather was perfect. Although the stores were all closed in the Bahamas for Christmas, we enjoyed the beach anyways. My fiance enjoyed the bottomless rum drinks more. And we both love our Ship on a Stick trophy we won for the scavenger hunt against the 9 year olds. lol.

After 5 days of being on the cruise boat I am feeling a bit of the rocking motion still. Wonder how long it will take for me to feel like I am off the boat. Also wondering why restaurants are expecting me to pay for my food now. Don't they know that food is free for you when you cruise? Or does that stop when you hit land?

With my fiance being in the military we are planning a wedding in about a month and a half. The last day of our trip was spent making lists and smoothing out the details before my fiance had to go back up to base.

So far we have decided on an outdoor wedding and our colors are Turquoise, Black and white. This wedding is definitely on a budget and short timeline. Two things that generally don't go together.

If anyone has any suggestions on how to make this process easier and more affordable please comment links and tips. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Hope everyone had a wonderful Christmas!

Congrats!

I got married on a budget, too. If you can get married in someone's backyard and have a BYOB (bring your own booze) reception instead of full-on dinner, it will help cut your costs in half. It can be classier than it sounds ...

Congrats on your engagement! I'm 8 months into my year-long engagement and I can't imagine all the work it would take to plan in 6 weeks, although I think it would be a LOT of fun!

A bit late in reading, but CONGRATULATIONS!! I am here to tell you that a wedding can totally be done on a teeny tiny budget. Just try to keep yourself from thinking that you have to have all of the traditional wedding "stuff". My wedding, including my dress, was less than $2,000. I only paid $100 for my dress, and it was gorgeous!
