In 48 Hours...

In 48 hours I'll be just about ready to head to the church to marry Mr Trifectagirl.  The weather forecast is rain in the morning and cool.  We've had late cancellations., and we've had a change in cars due to mechanical issues.

And as of this morning, FMIL doesn't seem pleased with some of the plans. 

We had intended to fund the wedding, and a European Honeymoon ourselves.  However, as Mr Trifectagirl's been out of work for about a year, we have considerable budgetary constraints and in order to get assistance from my parents to fund the wedding, we've had to drop things we wanted to do totalling about 1/3 of the original budget.  Part of the cull included the coursages for FMIL and my step-mother, and flowers for the reception.  The lack of coursage is what seems to have miffed FMIL.  We're also not getting our big honeymoon, which would have been over and above the wedding costs.

Thankfully our florist includes a throw-away bouquet for me, and a spare button hole for Mr Trifectagirl, so we'll give her one of those (but haven't told her this).  We'll make the call on the day.  I'm thinking the spare button hole pinned to her jacket since my father is getting one. 

Having baby J really has realy  helps deciding on what is really important, and what isn't. The biggest thing I've learned in the planning, is that the most important thing is that we're married at the end of it.

  1. So true that you need to focus on what's important for you and your family! You're responsible to your FMIL to love her well - but you're not responsible for how she responds to choices you had to make! :)

    Happy Wedding!!
