I have seen a growing trend in wedding blogs and have decided to join in. I am hoping that someone, if anyone reads this, can help me out.
I am 22 yrs. old and live in the Nashville, TN area. I have recently become engaged to my college sweetheart. We met almost a year and a half ago on a RANDOM snow day in North Carolina. (I love snow so this was positively the BEST way to meet my FH, R!) We are looking to have our wedding here in the Nashville area…pending our current unemployment status. Sad.
It is also our plan to create our dream wedding on a modest budget. My fiancee, R, and I are determined to make this OUR wedding; not just mine, and not just his. That’s the point of getting married…isn’t it? Recent studies, found by R, have said that the average wedding in Nashville costs $26,000 or more. We are hoping to spend $10,000 but would LOVE to spend less than that.
At any rate, this will be our story. I want our children to be able to look back on this and see what Mommyand Daddy went through to get to where we’ll be then.
We do not have a wedding date right now. Our main goal is to get jobs. We are, however, looking at a Summer 2011 wedding. R’s family is from New York so we’re hoping to plan the wedding over a 3-day wedding to give them an extra day of travel and avoid having to miss too much work.
