My name is Nick, I’m on here to request some help to make a dream come true for my fiancée, Alyssa.
I'm in the U.S. Navy. After doing a deployment to Afghanistan, I was diagnose with PTSD and was diagnosed with compartmental pressure of lower extremity, and after going through two surgeries to 'fix' the problem and 2 years of seeing a psychologist, the navy may medically discharge me. I’m currently in limbo and await response from big navy on whether or not I can stay in or will be kicked out. This adds a lot of stress on our family. We have two 5 year old girls, one from my prior marriage and her form a prior relationship. I know this sound like poor me stuff but this will help you understand why I’m wanting to do this for my fiancée.
I know, I am the main reason for her stress, as most of us guys are, and not to say that other girls are able to deal with stress, but Alyssa, my fiancée, has been my ship in rough seas and my compass when I was lost. She is amazing! She disserves so much which is why I want to do this for her. She wants to do a small picnic type wedding and with our budget it may make it hard to do, we have budgeted for$ 2,000 and we are requesting our friends and family to donated money to pay for our honeymoon instead of gifts. I would love to help make this happen and every little bit will help. So, I’m not asking for much and if you can do money then ideas or ways to get discounted or lightly used material would be helpful as well.
The biggest things we are looking to get help with is the venue, we will be doing it at a park its only $325, but if we could get enough just to pay that it will help a lot. Other this are a little money for decorations, and rental for speakers ($125…we will be our own DJ), chairs (we will have about 40-50 people). Last will be food, do help with keeping our cost down she want to cook herself…she’s the bride she has too much to have to worry about all this plus cooking and we have no family that will help b/c they live to far or aren’t…supportive, so if we can raise a little to go toward getting creating done it would help as well. Thank you in advance for anything you can offer to help me make this dream wedding come true for such an amazing soon to be wife and friend. God bless!
