I didn’t see my engagement coming. My fiance and I were both living in our parents’ home on Long Island with no hopes of ever moving out. You can’t get engaged if you can’t live on your own, right?
We had been planning to move to North Carolina since December 2009 and our chance came when I was offered a job at a satellite office for a former employer. Suddenly I was signing paperwork, putting in my resignation and planning a move to Raleigh, N.C., which is 550 miles away from my hometown of Holbrook.
In the midst of all that, Chuck, my boyfriend of two and a half years, decided it would be a great time to pop the question.
So here you find me planning a wedding on Long Island with a guest list of over 150 people on a tight (and I mean TIGHT) budget of $15,000 from over 500 mile away.
New posts will be published on Tuesdays and Fridays, with a smattering of stuff in between if I so feel inspired. I want to keep growing and expanding so keep checking back because change will be constant. I’d love your feedback on what I can do to make this blog better.
I am now taking submissions from brides to showcase their budget wedding. Please contact me if you are interested in sharing the details of your big day.
