Plans (B)

Looks like the wedding might have to be pushed back to the Spring. There's just no way that we can afford the exorbitant prices we're getting from the caterers. To make things worse, we have to use a caterer from an exclusive list approved to work at our venue. Slim pickins for lots of dough. Not good, sir. Not good. $115 per person for hors d'oeuvres only, no sit down dinner, no buffet... and that doesn't even include the bar! Sometimes New York sucks. Keeping this Brooklyn-centric is almost impossible. I don't like postponing our wedding because of money. I really resent it. The wedding industry is a racket and it's putting my panties in a bunch. Looks like a change of venue and a magic bag of money would save our October date, but not much else.

This is us where we really want to get married. We had it booked for the last Saturday of the season. *sigh*

Also, someone I overcame a personal hurdle for recently promptly became an ass once again and disappointed both MT and me. No, it's not who you think it is. But now, that person is cut off and out of both of our lives. It's kind of sad because I like to think that people are always a little better than their behavior, but this time she's proved that she's not - again. We've known that for awhile, but there was some hope left. Not anymore.

Now it looks like it's on to the plan(s) B. Got any suggestions?

My Plan B: elope! It seems to be the only affordable solution to get married. How about MT's parents' place? That area of the country is pretty in the fall.

Regarding the woman you cut off: it's not me, is it? 'Cuz we haven't spoken in a while... :)

I like the elope idea. But then throw a helluva party afterward. Or you could start a paper route at night and save money for the next six months? :-)
