Art Deco Meets Handmade: Make It Work

Hey guys! I know it’s been a while. Things have been crazy! We are planning for and paying for the majority of our wedding…and we have been on a strict budget to make it all happen. But, life happens and we lost one of our sources of income, so things got even more stressful. The past few weeks we have been frantically trying to make our wedding date work and figure out a plan to survive on just one income. But, in life something has got to give and it looks like it is going to be the wedding date. Obviously, we were both upset. While we are more excited than anything to get married, we want to make sure we are financially responsible and delaying the wedding is really the only option. It is really important for us to start our marriage together without resorting to adding any debt to make it happen.

Lucky for us the delay will just be a few months. What are a few months when we will have the rest of our lives together? Right!? We have been so strong for each other through this. The experience has given both of us more confidence in who we will be as a married couple: a great team! They say everything happens for a reason and I think this has shown us that. 09.13.14 will be here before we know it!
