Wait for a few years and have a more extravagant wedding?
Basically, we were due to get married September 9th 2012 just gone, I was planning a big flashy wedding, then I got pregnant! Our first baby is due October 2nd 2012, therefore we postponed the wedding. I won't go to details, but due to maternity leave and finances and what not, now I can basically afford $1000 to get married in around march. I already have my dress, all wedding rings, suit. Will make EVERYTHING myself (invitations, bouquet etc), the only things I have to pay for is food (barbecue in our back yard), some decorations, dress alteration and celebrant. I will decorate my back garden with fairy lights and borrow tables and chairs from everyone and anyone, have some fires going, music, cook all our own food (potato salads, corn on cob, meat, veggies), best friend will make wedding cake, Dad has expensive camera and will take pics, we'll buy a bunch of cartons of beer and bottles of wine...
Or like I said, book a date two years from now and start planning my extravagant ($10,000+) wedding? We are renovating, have a new baby on the way, I don't know if that's such a smart idea, plus I just want to get married now! But it also scares me to plan a wedding on $1000, that would go in a flash. Don't know what to do!!
Thanks for any advice
