I need to vent - I don't want to do this anymore

Recommended Posts

Celina I'm sorry that you feel stressed. I know a lot of people go through this especially as it gets closer since you really need to crunch numbers. But I promise that it will all be worth it in the end and you will be super happy.

I feel the same way! Now that the wedding is almost here I'm kinda freaking out! I have paid for most of the wedding myself, probably about 50/50 with my mom, but I have done every bit of planning.

 

You really do just have to look forward to the wedding and what it means. This is not just any other day, it's your wedding day so it should be treated as something special.

 

I've passed on lots of dinners and outings, but I keep telling myself I'll see those people at the wedding.

 

Men in general, or so it seems, just don't get it. I don't even think it matters what "it" is! LOL

 

Hang in there!

I think the trick to not getting down is to make living cheap more fun. Plan some cheap social events so it's not like you are stuck not doing anything because you are saving. You friends might be relieved to save some money & not need to go out that night too.

 

Instead of a group dinner out we'll do stuff like make a big batch of pizza crust & all make our own pizzas. Then BYOB & you have a cheap, fun party. We do board games instead of movies. We workout together, go for hikes, go to the gardens...I'm sure there are more. But, it's very possible to live cheap & still have a lot of fun. Today was a friends b-day. she is really trying to save so her & her husband can start a business. So instead of going out to dinner tonight, we met for lunch. We all brought our lunches from home & sat outside in the nice weather. it was much more fun than dinner at a restaurant.

 

The trick to being happy & living cheap is to be creative about it so you don't feel like you are sacrificing anything. Atleast that is what works for me.

In the end, it's totally worth it. Focus on the good stuff. It should help you get out of this slump and get excited about the wedding and trip.

As for your MOH, I think honesty is always the best policy. IF you can't afford it, you can't afford it. She should understand. Also understand if she can't afford it either and ends up not going. smile03.gif It will get better!
My FI is JUST LIKE YOU! I spoke to one of my BM's and she said she would give me the gift of $200 to help out my MOH. I can't find it in me to take her up on her offer. I have to really think the MOH problem out. She is the only one of all of my friends and family that I want there; that's why this is so hard for me.

You are right - it is something special and should be treated as such. I am going to keep your quote handy (next to all of my pics posted around the house) as a reminder. smile03.gif

    • The cooking method can double the calorie content of a meal, so learn about healthy cooking without having to add extra fats, like using a steamer,  a rotisserie , a slow cooker , a pressure cooker, a grill. Once you cook your own meals, you can control the calorie content because your control the cooking method and all the ingredients. A lot of people are overweight because they keep eating food that they did not cook.
    • I have stayed at Dreams La Romana and Dreams Dominicus.  The two resorts are very different in style and decor. A few comparison points are below and fact sheets are attached for both.   Both resorts are approx 45 minutes from Punta Cana airport, close proximity to Saona Island, Catalina Island and Altos de Chavon. Top championship golf courses in the Caribbean are just minutes away including Teeth of the Dog, Dye Fore, The Links and La Estancia – all designed by world-famous Pete Dye. Restaurants are similar at both resorts.  Both offer the Explorers Club for Kids.  Dreams Dominicus  Brand new resort and in 2016 488 rooms (however additional construction was underway) More contemporary style & decor Good beach area Rooms were very nice Preferred Club located in main lobby and adjacent to main pool & beach front Food was good Center plaza area with nighttime entertainment Main lobby is small, but outdoor bar off lobby is nice Dreams La Romana Originally built in 2003 & opened as Dreams La Romana in 2008 756 rooms Recently renovated and new preferred club adults only lounge & pool added  Rooms are more traditional Caribbean decor Grounds are very lush and tropical Good beach area food was good    Dreams Dominicus fact sheet.pdf Dreams La Romana fact sheet.pdf
    • My sister has done it but with the destination wedding, only super close family members and friends came since it was expensive and farther. It was great though.
