Wedding WorriesPosted: September 18, 2012
My fiancé and I use the same computer from home so when I grabbed the computer to check my face book (which I’m on rarely anyways and need to get better about this!), I happened to see his cousin was engaged. I asked him if he had noticed and dropped the subject. The next morning he brought up the fact that he hoped that his cousin wasn’t going to get married next year on our wedding day and went to check her page. (I think he’d had a dream about both weddings having ended up on the same day at the same time) Apparently it’s this November. Um okay, now I kind of hope we aren’t invited to the wedding. Is that horrible?
My reasons: we need a few months to budget things out. Money is tight right now (our own doing but we want to save for the potential move, our wedding, debt and just to save of course) so it’s going to take some tricky maneuvering to be able to budget a gift (which as we gave his other cousin $100, I would think we need to do the same amount-they are in the same family). And of course, do we have suitable clothes? I do but most of his clothes state the company that we work for—probably not awesome attire. Then we need to figure a way out there.
Plus if we do budget in the money for the gift, it’s always hard to let it go as its money that could have gone towards our wedding! (Oh that just sounds greedy now)
Of course, this could all be worries for nothing. And I could be over thinking everything anyways. We might not be invited and would therefore not have to worry about it. I just don’t want to offend his family as our wedding is coming up. So it’s this weird thought process that keeps going through my head of worries that shouldn’t even be in place yet.
Eventually we want to have a gift fund in place for things like this but that’s relatively low on the list right now!
