We're creating this fundraiser as a way for us to pay for our wedding. As we both come from families that are not financially perfect, we are having to pay for this entire wedding ourselves. As neither of us were fortunate enough to go to college and get a well-paying job, affording a wedding while paying all of our everyday bills is becoming next to impossible. However, we want nothing more than to have all of our friends and family with us on our special day, so a big wedding it will be! We believe this is an opportunity not only for us to be able to pay for things upfront and not owe money later, but for our friends and family to avoid the hassle of having to pick out wedding gifts, etc. You can give us your wedding gift now and just show up on our special day to party!!! Delicious food, great atmosphere, and free drinks all night!! Woot woot ;) Oh, also anyone who donates to us will get to pick a song to play at the wedding!!! :) If you'd like to take a look at where we have decided to get married, you can go to www.astoriabanquets.com and take a look! It'll take your breath away!! I know it did to me, anyway haha! Please don't think this is a pathetic means to get anyone to feel sorry for us, if you can't afford to, or wish not to help this way, WE TOTALLY UNDERSTAND! We at least had to give it a try, though! Thank you so much for everything, we love you all, and hope to be able to see you on our big day!!!
