Let the wedding planning begin!

Almost three weeks later and I'm still sorta in shock about this whole engagement thing. We haven't really thought about much planning just yet other than setting up an appointment to take a look at Mac's family's church in Franklin. We are wanting to of course do this wedding as cheap as possible because we are also house hunting as well now. The day is about us and not about how much money we can spend on it to impress people. That is soooooooooooo not me!

For now, all I have done is contact some catering companies about pricing information and I also took a look at what it is going to cost to make my wedding invitations. (Which I am soooo stoked to get started on, even though I don't need to worry about those right now!) We are going to have to save money for a down payment on a house and a wedding so I'm sure this year is going to be a little stressful for us. We had agreed to pay off any debts we had before getting married and we are more than halfway done with that. My SUV will be paid off in April and my credit cards are just about paid off to that lovely $0 balance I have been working so hard to get to.

Wish me luck. I'm trying to not get stressed about money so I'm going to have to do whatever I can to keep myself calm and collected.

You're going to rock this whole thing out with class! :)

Check Puckett's off the square. We checked there for our reception, but had too many people to book it. Boo! I know they have catering available too- all in one location.

And congrats on house hunting too! Fun times going on in your life, no doubt!

Thanks! Yeah, we took a look at Puckett's but we are most likely going to have too many people for that.

I was so bummed when I found out the max capacity! I told Bill, "We're cutting 50 people right now."


Of course, that didn't happen.
