And hey, if you need some assistance in DIY projects give me a shout, as I'm sure most on BDW will tell you!
Finally...I know from experience how difficult the long engagement can be. We will be nearly 3 years when we exchange vows. It was painful at times, watching newly engaged friends get married long before me, but we did it! And we get a tropical wedding unlike them! HA! Hang in there...price everything out, and most importantly, take a deep breath! *HUGS*

She has the dress custom made and her father was paying for it and she didn't even like it when it came it that she switched it to another dress that was even more expensive and she still didn't like everything on it so she has things changed on it!

My advise to you is this......... still down with your FI and have a serious talk about his ex-wife and the wedding. When discussing his ex you guys need to find a way to tell her that although you would never deny the child anything, you would like to be consulted before any extra expenses are incurred. I would check with your insurance company they probably would cover your portion of the expenses. But you also need to express that next time you what to be advised before hand and also to be included in any decision making. I am not sure but I do not think you are liable for extra expenses after the child support unless specified by a court order. But again who would deny a child something he really needed. But I say this because we went thru my FI's child getting extra dental (cosmetic type stuff done, completely unnecessary) and billing us. When we questioned the dentist he told us that his ex asked for it. Since our benefits did not cover it and it was not medically required we did not have to pay. She tried pulling this in many different ways.
As far as the wedding goes if you want to do it sooner rather than later then I suggest you dig your heels in! I say this because there was always some money excuse that always came up. So I ended up waiting almost 22 years!!!!!!!!!!!!! Don't make that mistake. But what I do suggest to you is to reconsider other things. Maybe change the location or star rating. Remember Mexico has a lot of issues right now. And there are a number of other location you could look at that are just beautiful and maybe more cost efficient. You still have time. Talk to a TA and ask them about the most cost efficient place and the requirements. Go into a travel agency and pick-up all the book and look thru them for your prospective dates. A lot of resorts do wedding but are not in a special wedding booklet. You may be surprised. It will also give you and idea about the cost for the trip.
Good Luck I hope everything works out for you
