I am loving life, especially since marrying Chris. I'm Mom to 6 year old twins boys that keep me busy and laughing every day. My life is full of fun, laughter, love and crafting!

Decisions, decisions....

So, we've been talking about our big day and I'm starting to think we're taking on more than we can manage. We moved to Canada 7 months ago, so we have had to find somewhere to live (currently renting, just put down the deposit for a new development), completely furnish our current house, get cars for both of us, set up secured bank accounts, pay to set up gas & electric accounts...and I love to cook so getting kitchen stuff has cost more than I'd hoped too. I stay at home with the kids, something we are both very adamant about, so only have FIs salary to pay for everything + try to save for the wedding. Anyway, our new house is bigger than where we are renting, it has a 2nd living room so we will need to get another couch/chairs/coffee table etc and our boys are growing at a crazy pace so they will need new beds too. I am starting to think about cutting back on our already 'basic' day - a faux diamond wedding band, my dad & brother doing photography (both very talented at it), no mini-moon but the big thing is our reception. We were planning to have it at one of our fave restaurants in Jasper, but I'm now thinking of going down to the river and having a BBQ. This is what FI and I have always wanted to do, but it didn't seem fair for our friends & family to fly all the way from England for a hot-dog!! My priority has always been my little boys, so I'm willing to sacrifice anything for them to have a comfortable home - but will I end up regretting it in the end?? I am not willing to change the date because I know as soon as we do we will never get married because there will always be something else more important!! Watch this space!!!........

Yup i am in the same boat!

money is tight i think everyone for the most part in this boat. But everything works out in the end!


I'm sure whatever you guys decide will be fantastic & in the end those traveling will be happy to just spend the day with you two & your son's.  I hear you about having to keep costs down as I'm in the same boat!
