How long have your been dreaming of your wedding day and what was/is your Dream Wedding? I am not one of those brides who have been dreaming of a winter in wonderland wedding. I have always dreamed of the life after marriage – the children and family, everything that comes with the untity.

Approx. Wedding Budget? $10,000

Who’s Paying for Wedding? Markand I

What happens if you go over budget? We will just keep buying until everything is bought.

How helpful has the groom been (or not) in the planning process? The Groom is really good at telling me what NOT to buy, but as far as planning what we are actually buying and the order of service he is not to involved.

Tell us about your family. How have they been involved in the planning process? My family has been OK, lately a bit flakey and not really being there for me. Some of them are becoming very selfish and forgetting whose day this really is.

What’s the worst thing that could go wrong on your wedding day? That no one show up to the wedding or reception!

Define the type a bride you will be.  I am definitely a laid back kind of bride in that I don’t show emotions, and it takes me a while to get upset. I want things a particular way so I have been called controlling, and with this wedding I think I have taken it up several notches.

What disagreements have come up about the wedding? The groom doesn’t want me to get a second dress for the reception because he says its unnecessary, and the décor has become a problem as well because he doesn’t want me to get things that are perishable, like an ice sculpture

Has the engagement/wedding ever been called off, or in jeopardy? 
The wedding at one point was in jeopardy because of finances. We weren’t sure how we were going to pay for the wedding and at one point had no money to pay for it at all.
