Elope. Please.

17 Mar

My advice to everyone: Elope. Don’t do any of the wedding crap. It’s not worth it. It will just anger you.

– You have to harass people to get them to talk to you. Even though you are going to spend thousands of $
– Your priest will make you feel like you’re having a shotgun wedding because you didn’t go a year in advance
– Forget the fact you don’t even live together.
– People will renege on their promises and leave you scrambling
– As soon as they hear “wedding” dollar signs pop out of their eyes and they will charge you 10x more.
– You will become exhausted dealing with this junk

Thanks to all the wedding ceremony crap taking over my life the last two weeks, I forgot to apply to a grant that I really really wanted.

FU wedding planning!!!!!!!!!!!

If we didn’t already put down money on this ridiculous thing, we’d cancel. We thought a ceremony with all our family and friends would be nice, but it’s just become a pain in the ass and a huge expense. We don’t need a ceremony to live happily ever after and too bad we can’t back out now.

    You should maybe look into a wedding planner, because that really sucks that you missed out on your grant application…so sorry to hear that!!

    I wish you the best of luck going forward…!

      thanks so much for your comment. We can’t afford the planner. We’ve looked into it. Just gotta suck it up and deal. Had to rant to someone, thanks for listening

    I’m sooooo glad another bride to be feels like this. It’s not so bad at the moment but a couple of weeks ago I wanted to call the whole thing off! Weddings are NOT all sweetness and light, they take up far too much time and it doesn’t help when you have a fiancé with no input either! Xx
