Not gonna lie--2013 has been a ridiculously awesome year. I started my own business, we bought a house that we are renovating, and we got engaged. We set a wedding date for September 7, 2013. Our families can't afford to help pay for the wedding, and, as it turns out, weddings are EXPENSIVE! But you know what else is expensive? Starting a business and buying a fixer-upper. We have no money left to get married. I know you're thinking--well, just wait a little bit to get married, but I'm 34 and would like to get married so we can start a family next year.
All of our money is tied up between the business and the house. Because I just started my own business, I'm not eligible for any sort of loan because I have no proof of my income. My finace is self-employed and has only lived in the area for two years. Before he lived here, he was in school and was making enough to pay for school and go to school. He's 32, btdubs--I'm not robbing the cradle or anything. We are age-appropriate.
So we would really like help paying for our wedding and having some money set aside so we can start a family. Our wedding isn't going to be anything crazy. Just close friends and family. But we want it to be nice. The money would go towards everything wedding related, and any money left over would be for savings for when we have a child.
Anything you can do to help us out would be appreciated beyond belief. I'm an incredibly hard worker and we are living out our dreams right now. But we could really use the extra help to make sure everything happens.
