I have no idea where to start
How do you know where to start? Recently engaged although been together for 9 years with 2 kids.
H2b would like to go abroad but im not keen as it'll be too stressful I think.
We have started looking at venues but im not sure whether to stay really local, or go 35 minutes away or 2 hours.
I feel like we don't have enough guests (is that a common worry?) & a lot of them don't have loads of money so I don't want to put them out to travel or stay over night for my wedding and I worry they wouldn't come.
Another reason for not going abroad is that I dont think.people would come and I want a nice atmosphere for our day.
So we are going to look at venues but no idea what date to set as they are all so confusing with the pricing. I wish they would just say it'll cost £x amount but im getting very confused looking at the brochures.
Also my dad has very kindly offered to give us something towards the wedding but won't say how much and I don't want to outright ask as I don't want to seem grabby.
I have already asked my 4 bridesmaids and h2b best man and we know which children will be in the wedding.
Date wise I would love it to be August 2019 but worry we will regret it as we wont have much spare cash each month with saving.
So the next date is may or june 2020, it just feels so long away! But I think this is what we will aim for. Means financially we will be less stressed. Also the kids will be older and hopefully easier on the day I would think
Budget wise I'm thinking 15-20k for everything.
Apologies for the rambling post. This is my first post and just thought id get all my thoughts out to see if anyone has any comments. I have never been interested in getting married until the last couple of years and even then I didnt think about the actual day so really have no idea where to start or what to do .
