Our daughter is engaged! That's the good news. The flip side is that, gulp, there's going to be a wedding. And we all know how much those can cost. We're going to be in serious DIY mode - from invitations to decorations - to keep things reasonable. DS1 has already come through with a friend who will play the piano and whose mother has offered to be the director at no charge.
The big day will be in October. That means we've got 10 or so months to save enough to make this a cash-only event. That's the goal. It's a big one given our situation. But I think we can do it. Wish us luck!
