I was just browsing the web for cheap ideas for flowers and wine and decor for our wedding coming up in October 2014 and I saw that a women started a gogetfunding.com page and paid for her wedding, so I thought it couldn't hurt anything. My wedding budget is really, honestly $0. With three children, a house, University tuition, kid's activities and the usual I don't have time or money for any of this. Why then are we getting married? Our children are currently in cathechism and we are very intent on raising our children in the church and believe in leading by example. We have worked hard to give our children the best we know how and want them to see that we practice what we preech. How can we teach our three boys about the sacraments if we are not living them? My husband and I (we are married through civil cermmony) were drug addicts in very unstable relationships, before we met. I became pregnant and we sobered up together. We are both high school drop-out and have both been homeless. We knew that this was not the life that we wanted for our baby. For a brief time I applied for Welfare and being raised on Welfare, knew that I had to make a change. A short time after applying for Welfare, I found I was pregnant with my second baby; my boys are 13 months apart. While pregnant with my youngest, at 20, I obtained my driver's license and my G.E.D. With a six month old and a one and half year old, I enrolled at community college. I began working as a Counseling Assistant on campus. My husband at my side, supporting me the whole way. I started working for the County and shortly after received my A.A. in Business. We just purchased a home so that our boys could know a stability that we never had at that age. I am enrolled at State University and am pursuing a Bachelor's in Accounting. This is not just a celebration of everything that we have overcome, but something that we believe is right to do. We are planning on having a small wedding and don't need much. We would like small honeymoon, as we literally have not had one weekend away from our boys since I gave birth to the oldest. And we have only really been away from them when I was in the hospital giving birth. We have been dedicated parents to our children and need a small break from the soccer, football, baseball, school, homework, cook, clean routine. There was a time when we releaized that we could not be together as a couple until we both took some time to focus on ourselves; until we both took a step back and saw that we really needed to grow as individuals before we could grow as a couple. We have not had great examples of a marriage and are really winging it, but we are dedicated to making this work. It would be great if we could get some help to cover the costs. The hall is $1850, the food $1200 the decorations $!500, it is sooo extremely costly and anything would really help.
