How Much Does it REALLY Cost to Get Married? - Planning our Courthouse Wedding

Let’s just cut to the chase. Weddings are expensive AF. You go to hire a vendor, get a quote in your inbox and cry. I saw a fellow blogger equate wedding planning to crying over spreadsheets, and I hate to say it, but I’m in the same boat. If you have been following along with my wedding plan, then you probably know that we are having a destination wedding in June. People keep saying to me, “Oh, it’s just a destination wedding. It can’t be that bad.” Well, let me tell you. It is. I picked a stunning venue with delicious food & cocktails, beautiful wedding invites, all day entertainment, and a top notch photographer and videographer, and I’m paying the price.

Ekkk! I finally got my butt around to making a mood board for our wedding. This post was originally drafted two months ago when we first got engaged, but alas, I finally finished it. Long before the proposal, Andrew and I had debated between eloping and a small destination wedding. We knew we wanted one or the other, and after the proposal we landed on a small destination wedding.

Our Engagement Story

Our Engagement Story

I can’t believe it has already been two months since our engagement! Where in the hell does time go? Back in July, Andrew and I had started planning weekly dates as advised by my amazing life coach (more on her and that experience coming soon). We alternate back and fourth on who plans the date. It was mid-august and Andrew’s week to plan the date.
