Instead of feeling overjoyed and excited about my engagement over Christmas, the reality of planning a wedding has hit me.
My partner and I come from families where homelessness and poverty are commonplace. We have worked so hard in our lives to get to where we are today and want to go into the future together, learning and growing.
But we have to live paycheck to paycheck right now, for the most part. And our parents do not have the means to significantly assist us with this next step.
So how do people in this position manage to actually have a wedding? It feels so daunting and like we should just forget it and hit City Hall. I never thought I'd ever get married so this isn't something I had been planning to consider.
Can anyone help by offering unique suggestions and tips on making this work? Overwhelmed and need some positive support!
