Planning a wedding is very exciting especially if you have a big budget. But in my case, my husband seems to be uncooperative, we are planning to get a church wedding but he's very reluctant because we have no sufficient fund. both our families pressuring us and wants us to get married in church. i hope that they will help us financially.

Yes, i may say that it is very stressful really planning for a wedding without the suffcient budget. Why dont you talk to both parties your family and his family if they are willing to contribute financing your wedding if they demand that you both should get married in the church. If they cant help with this then maybe your husband to be would just be happy to do the civil wedding which will be less stress for you and at the end of the day its the both of you who'll get married and pay for everything. So its up for you and your partner to decide with this and not anybody else.

yeah its very true, now, we already opened up our financial problems to our families and they are willing to help. Same thing, its just stressful thinking that i will really stretch the budget to fit and cater the event!

Hey miyara, Have you ever considered hiring a wedding planner? You can usually find one on the cheap, or even sometimes a close family friend will do. Sometimes, having a third party involved can help negotiate better prices on things you need (flowers, favors, gown, etc.)....at least that's what I found when helping to plan my friends. Her florist gave her a very high estimate, but after negotiating with a wedding planner

This is your wedding and you do what you want. Is this both your families' wedding? No, this is your wedding-bride and groom. If you don't want to get married in a church, don't do it. If you give in to your family's demands, you will end up very unhappy and stressed out. You have the right to get married wherever you please. Get married on a beach, on top of the roof, or on a beautiful garden, or just fly to Las Vegas and pick your choice of wedding chapels! My spouse and I flew to Las Vegas and we never regretted it. It was just the 2 of us and a female witness we picked off the street. All of the funds were paid by us. We didn't ask our families for financial support. We got married where WE wanted and did things our way. And if you do things your way for that special occasion, you will be happier! I don't know if you are relgious. If not, it doesn't make any sense to get married in a church.
