So here goes, My name is Lewis and I am soon to marry my amazing fiance Steph, we are both from Scotland and met 10 years ago where we shared a McFlurry from McDonalds.....who said romance has gone. I'm very new to this and have been searching the internet for ideas on how to help raise some funds towards a wedding to make my fiance be so happy.
A little about us
We have gone about life in a very different way to others, we are both in our mid(late for me) 20's and due to work commitments where we have had to relocate 5 times in the space of 9 years around the United Kindgom we have never really been able to save for a wedding. To top this off we now have 2 of the most beautiful boys aged 5 and 2 and wouldn't change them for the world. At present I have had to take a job 700 miles away from home where I am travelling back every fortnight to see my future wife to be and my amazingly strong boys who look after their mummy when I'm away. obviously this is extremely tough as I am missing out on the very early stages of my boys lives and Steph has to cope with me being away but unfortunately this is the only way we can survive to pay the bills. We both work in order to live as I'm more than aware everyone else does too so this really isn't a begging message.
What these funds will do for us
Neither Steph or I have a big family, infact I only have one member of my family left so we had to think long and hard about what we were going to do about a wedding ceremony. We couldnt afford to invite all our friends as we just don't have the income in order to pay for a reception etc so we have decided upon a very small cermony with family only, this will include Steph and I, then our 2 boys and 5 more adults. We don't live in a grand area so we aim to stay in a large house which will accomodate us all in the scottish countryside for 2 nights and have the cermeony in the garden with a BBQ to follow. This is our way to keep costs to a minimum. Stephs mum and dad have kindly agreed to pay for the holiday home and Steoh will be getting her mum's wedding dress which she wore over 30 years ago altered to wear on our magical day so we are left with the rest to raise.
Wedding Car: £250
I don't even know really what to say now in this bit, all I want to do is try and give Steph teh wedding of her dreams. I know already that she is slighlty disheartened by the fact that she can't invite her friends and that breaks my heart. Ever since we met 10 years ago I knew she was the girl of my dreams and taht I wanted to spend the rest of my life with her. We've been through some very tough times with family problems and she's stood by me every step of the way. this day is my way of saying I love you and showing how much I care. I try to put money aside to pay for this but with 2 boys and endless fuel to travel home what is left at the end of each month is minimal. I eat beans on toast or ceral everyday just to keep costs down and have lost endless weight doing so (you may think thats a good thing but there is nothing to me).
I'm not even sure if anyone will read this or get this far in the posting but if you have thank you, thank you for even taking the time to read this. If you do decide to give then for that I thank you even more from the bottom of my heart. This really is a last resort and as a very proud father and husband to be believe me when I say this has taken a lot to post. My pride has had to take a back seat.
Thanks you so much
