This whole trying to plan wedding thing.... good lord, is it difficult.
And I'm not talking about a fancy-schmancy wedding, although in my secret heart of hearts, I'd love one. But we can't afford $30,000--and actually, a lot of Americans can't for that matter.
But right now, I'd just settle on being able to find a rabbi to marry us who DOESN'T charge $750 for his services (that is the CHEAPEST I've found), as well as a location to get married in.
Does anyone have a lovely farm or outdoor location in NJ that you'd like to let me use for one day, for a reasonable fee? =) Or perhaps you'd like to rent me a ballroom with all the extravagant catering... but naah, that's in my dreams. =)
Thanks for listening folks.
And may I recommend this wonderful website, www.indiebride.com; I find that there are so many people on the message boards who are going through the same trouble we are, with it being an interfaith marriage, and then not having a fortune to spend. It makes me feel much less alone in this whole confusing wedding planning mess. =)
