So I'm posting today with great excitment in my life. Last night, at midnight, my boyfriend and I got engaged. I knew it would happen eventually, but I didn't expect it to be quite so soon. Of course I said yes and I'm super excited to be engaged and begin planning our life together.
My question is this. In a couple of weeks I'm starting my final semester of my MSN program. I know it will be CRAZY busy and I realistically probably won't have time to dig my heels in with wedding planning until May. BUT, we really want to get married in October of 2014.
Knowing we're both relatively poor financially speaking, and that the venue will most likely be an 8-hour drive away, do you think we could pull this off? I've never planned a wedding before and really know very little about the whole process. We wouldn't want anything crazy big. Maybe 50 guests tops - and done very simply at an outdoor venue. I know it may be better financially (and perhaps with my sanity) to wait until 2015, but I hate the thought of waiting another - almost - 2 years.
