So what are the issues here? Number 1 will always be money. Weddings that cost between 50,000-100,000? Wow! How do people even afford this? I rather put that fund toward my future child's life. Or realistically, a nice vacation? No wedding reception plans for me haha. Number 2 is kids. I used to think, what's the point of getting married without having kids right after? I still think this. Maybe not right after, but soon. Someone once told me, it's never a good time to have kids so you might as well have them if it happens. haha I guess I'm ready for them then.
My plans? Get married within the next year in vegas. Give my friends and family 36 hour notice. Perhaps give my boyfriend 2 weeks notice lol. Have a blast in vegas. Go to Hawaii or somewhere tropical for the honeymoon. Start making Franz jr. and Rebecca by 30.
I know people say that the more educated (refined?) you are, the later you wait for marriage. But yea the idea of waiting till i'm 30 plus and raising kids while I'm all wrinkly does not appeal to me. Such little time, must get a move on on these plans! ;))
