Yes, it is true!
My fiancé and I have decided to get married. We did engage in June and since we want a summer wedding, and don't want to wait too long, we have decided to go for August 2010.
We have already started to put together the invitation list and pulling together a budget. Both of these things are essential to the planning and very tightly connected. Many guests requires a huge budget and to be straight forward that is something we can't pull off.
At the moment are we looking at about 70 guests and a budget between 100 000 and 150 000 Swedish crowns (10 000-15 000 $). That is not including the honeymoon. I know, it is a lot of money! I hope to be doing some parts myself to keep the costs down.
We have already started to look at a church and where to have the reception. We have two alternatives, either in my hometown (where we also live at the moment) or my fiancé's hometown. Both are small, lovely rural towns close to the sea.
It is pros and cons with both of them, but as it looks at the moment my fiancé's hometown has most pros.
In a couple of weeks will we go there to visit his family and have a look at the churches in the area and where to have the reception.
