    First Wedding Meltdown

    First Wedding Meltdown 6th Mar 17 at 8:37 PM
    Sat here trying not to cry.

    When trying to go to sleep after going to the pub last September, my OH decided 'Did you think that marriage might be a thing you'd be interested in?' said in pitch dark at the back of my head counted as a proposal. I said yes, waited until he woke up the next morning to find out whether he really meant it and told myself not to be so stupid for feeling sad because I couldn't even see him, much less get the Wow feeling of somebody going down on one knee and proposing.

    It's now March and I'm not allowed to have a cheap silver engagement ring because he can't afford to buy one. He's self employed. Well, would be if he could get any work or people would pay him on time when he does.

    He asked the person I wanted to give me away (my Dad died years ago) to be his best man without telling me what he was thinking. If he had, I would have said so, as I don't have any family left.

    He needs to get a copy of his divorce papers because he's lost them, but can't afford to do it. He won't let me pay for them.

    He really wants to organise everything because his ex and her family left him feeling like a spare part from the moment he asked her. When I'm feeling mardy, I'm not exactly surprised about it if this was how he went about things then. They also paid for everything, so I guess they felt they could.

    I've bought a cheap dress that is shoved at the back of the wardrobe still in its plastic bag from Amazon. It's nice, but it's a £25 dress bought online. I can't take it out and try it on because he is always in when I get back from work and he says I'll have to buy a new one if he sees even a bit of it. It's going to take about four hours to iron it, as it's so cheap, they folded it up into a packet less than A4 size. But we don't even have an iron or ironing board since the old one broke.

    I've been looking up the prices for registry office things. I can't stand the idea of marrying here, as it's a horrible area, the registry office is horrible, the place is filled with drunks and the park is being dug up and flats put on it. Except for the dirty bit where the addicts go to the toilet and drop their needles. But even the fees for nobody else coming are too much for me to afford on my own. And then there's the paperwork, the booking, I can't afford to take time off work unpaid, no honeymoon as work would refuse permission anyway if they haven't made me redundant by then - I've just escaped it twice in the last year - and he might have a couple of days work either side of the date I wanted (it's the only thing I wanted, a date that was special to us) and we can't afford anything, wedding rings and shoes, a bunch of flowers, getting somebody to do something with my horrible hair and the cost of the bus fare home again.


    I didn't think anybody would ever want to marry me, I love him very much, but I really wish I could have had a romantic proposal, one I could have seen, I want to wear a dress that costs more than my bus pass, I want to look pretty for once in my life. but I just can't see how to afford all this in a million years, never mind eight months. And I'm going to be there all on my own. At least he has family that would come if we could afford to pay for guests.

    I'm not looking for thousands of pounds of stuff. I want to feel special, have flower petals thrown at me (I'm going to collect and dry them myself over the summer) and feel like I'm not second best to everybody else who can afford to pay their bills and get married. But I don't. I don't think we can do this. And I want to cry.



    Can somebody give me a kick?

    Why 8 months? Why not 20 months so same date a year later and that gives you some time.

    You need to get a new job or work out a way to make more money in your current job, or get a new job if that's possible.

    You don't need to get married in your local registry, you can get married in any registry office though the pretty ones might have less availability so you need to book quickly, especially if your date is on a Saturday!

    Your dress from Amazon is lovely, I'm sure it is and I've never seen it. Your partner will have to go down the pub or do a bit of over time to give you time home alone to have a twirl in it. You can buy things online to glam it up if you feel that you want to, my dress looked a bit plain until I found a belt on eBay and with the belt (white with pearly bits and sparkly bits) and a £7.99 tiara from eBay as well it really looks the part.

    Your hair, well do you have a friend who can do hair? My sister is the only person who can tame my mop. In Scotland we have a web site called 5pm where restaurants and salons post up offers like heavily discounted hair cuts and colours or nail and waxing packages, you need to pre pay and book from a list of set days and times, do you have a web site like that down south? If that isn't possible try asking your local hair dressing college if they have a student salon and get them to do your hair that morning (don't mention the W word though).

    I think you need to get some savings behind you, even just enough to cover the registry fees and the essentials like transport (surely someone can give you a lift?).

    Oh and don't iron your dress (well do if it's really bad but on low heat and be careful). The lady who did my alterations told me to just hang my dress in the bathroom after a shower and keep the door closed for a few hours. The steam from the shower will help the creases fall out

    I'm planning my wedding (in my head) as he hasn't yet proposed. He has however had my grandmas ring altered. So unlesss he plans to give it to a floozie he'd better be proposing.

    We don't have a house. And having seen his sisters wedding and knowing how much must have been spent I have no intentions of spending that. I like the idea of a registry office. He's religious so will possibly want a church. Her dress was at least £1500 and her dog shat on it after the event as it was strewn across the floor.

    I intend to have an Amazon dress. With a fabulous petticoat! I'm planning to have a house party to celebrate. My wedding cake will be a home made pavlova off. (I'm going to make one - ask my mum to make one and my partners uncle makes a legendary pavlova - but obviously not as good as my mothers).

    I hate the idea of people all looking at me. And if I get to make the deciding vote I'd like to get married in the smallest room our local registry office has so we can only invite 4 people to the actual day. I probably won't get away with that.

    Just because I'm planning something small and cheap (like the budgie) doesn't mean I won't feel like a princess. I'm serioulsy hoping we can do it all for under £1000. I'm hoping that can include some change for a weekend in somewhere dead exotic like Whitby (kind of local to us).

    If you're feeling dejected about it - consider putting it off for another 12 months. It gives you longer to save. Pay for one small thing each payday. And make things that you can use.

    Look on pintrest for super cheap and free ideas. E g painted tin cans with holes hammered in them. Very cheap. Look good and can be stored if needed. Some of the ideas you'd need to be Martha Stewart to pull off. But not all. Look around on gumtree for freebies and on fleabay for things shipped from china. They can take a while to arrive - but can be pennies.

    Also if you need your partner to know how you feel and understand this you may have to tell him directly. Some men are very intuitive. Most aren't. I intend to feel like a princess on a very tight budget - it can be done. I hope. Haha.

    The dressmaker who altered my sister's wedding dress told us that too.

    'A few hours'?

    We had our shower running for days, the dress was still creased to hell.

    I had to iron it whilst my OH supported it.
    It really was the most stressful thing I've ever had to do.
    I felt physically sick.
    Don't leave it to the last minute, Glaswejen.

    As for the OP's post - the man she's planning to marry sounds controlling.

    Rather than giving her a kick (see last sentence), I'd advise her to run for the hills.

    My dress got steamed in the shop, the advice was for a bridesmaids dress that got squashed in transit and it came out really quickly. It is a China cheapie so we knew it was a gamble but the material is really floaty and that's probably why it came out quickly. If it had taken ages I'd have probably attacked it with the steam thing we use for the kitchen. I'm sure someone you know will have one, mum and her church friends are obsessed with them for some reason.

    I don't know about controlling, maybe bricking it about the expense? If they're not a high income house and just about getting by then a wedding can be really scary to pay for. Everything is so expensive and no one is in a hurry to tell you to cut back on money.

    It's normal for men to get funny about seeing the wedding dress (or at least it is here in the west of Scotland), possibly not demanding a whole new dress but it is considered bad luck for a man to see the wedding dress before the wedding.

    For the engagement ring, if he can't afford it then he can't afford it. OP said he's self employed and struggles to get people to pay on time which is a problem for a lot of small businesses.

    I re-read the OP and wanted to add:

    Get your dress out the packet and hung up ASAP. Buy a cheap suit bag from the pound shop or eBay to hide it in so the OH doesn't see it. The longer it's mashed up the harder it will be to iron. Hang it and let gravity have a shot with the creases for the next few months).

    You'll be amazed at who wants to come to a wedding and you don't pay for people to travel. We're getting married in Glasgow and have people flying in from Israel, London and Wales. They just got a normal invite then replied to say they were coming, I'm certainly not paying their flights or accommodations though I did recommend some local hotels with good rates.

    I invited the ladies from work to the evening do and two asked to come and watch the ceremony and come back to the evening, I was amazed but said of course they can come.

    Now that we're on count down people are handing us gifts who we would never dream of getting gifts from. A neighbour of his mum gave us nice tea towels, one of my patients sent in chocolates and non-alcoholic fizzy for the work girls for my last day, a distant friend of the family who doesn't even live in the EU any more posted us a present and we've got so many cards and we're not even married yet! I've had to start a list in case I miss someone when doing the thank you cards.

    Have you spoken to him? Get a feel for what you both think you need and then want. My local registry office and the one I'll use are different and some of their charges differ - if you have a choice shopping round may help.

    I didn't read your first post as him being controlling - more you're both worried about how to pay for a wedding? Is that right?

    Yes think you definitely need to talk. If that person is who you want to give you away why cannot boyfriend get someone else to be bestman?


    Also he cannot take over your wedding as his first was spoilt for him. Most men would not want to be involved with details anyway. tell him you need to know what is going on and agree on items.


    Start by making a list of everything. I'm sure lots of friends would love to help - maybe they could throw you a buffet at village or church hall. If lots bring different food it need not cost a lot.


    I'm sure your dress will be lovely - definitely try steaming - at a friends house if necessary.


    Some might love to decorate or do flowers and simple table decorations or design cheap invites on their pc - everyone has different skills so use your friends.


    Regardng money - its good now to work out all the costs - the necessary ones such as registry office and divorce papers. then you'll know realistically whether its workable or not.

    Hun, you don't need a kick, you need a massive hug right now. Here's the dodgy group one from all of us here on you thread. It's all going to be ok, better than ok, it's going to be amazing. It just needs some more heads to help with figuring it out.

    First of all, your OH is going to have to understand that his proposal was not good and that has possibly got all the planning off on the wrong foot. Tell him that you understand he loves you, but getting married is a very special thing (even if he has done it before) and that you need to feel how special and important you are to him. You need a ring, it doesn't have to cost much at all (my mate had one that cost a fiver, it was so pretty, surely he can find a fiver?) but it's the finger you wear it on that signals to the world and to you that this is happening. If he's so keen to organise things (and I think this is a good thing) let him start with organising a proper proposal, ring and all.

    Once that's done, you can properly feel you're getting married. You need to tell everyone! It doesn't sound like you've done that yet, maybe you have, but the hype gains momentum when your friends, work pals, everyone keep this in mind and surprise you with a thought about it. It's lovely and costs nothing. But people need to know and then offers of help will appear. Because everyone knows how ridiculously expensive weddings can be. Thankfully, weddings also inspire generosity, so let people help. And they will.

    You then need your OH to understand that this is your wedding too and you need to have some part in the planning. His previous marriage should most definitely not be a reason to exclude you. It's your day. Yours. All day.

    Am I right that the basics have yet to be decided, where and on what date? This is good, you can have your say. It cannot possibly happen in the area you live in, that's a given and needs to be respected. If you want a registry office, find the nicest one you can, loads of them are lovely. Or a small town or village hall. Or a pretty grden somewhere. Then a house party that someone else hosts, maybe? This is one way to keep the costs down. There are loads of others, look on here. Get everyone involved and who knows how it will unfold? You can make it spectacular.

    My guess is that other things are getting you down right now, your job, the place you live, and now you are getting married you are missing your dad. More hugs. So, you need to start putting your own team together. Ask someone to give you away, someone who loves you, someone who it will mean a lot to. Ask a friend to be your bridemaid/best person/whatever you want to call it. Have a team just for you and they will help you through all the ups and downs, they really will.

    Best of luck with it all. I hope you feel better soon. xx
    If you know you have enough, you're rich.

    First of congratulations and big hugs.

    The registry office weddings can be as cheap as £50 but it's £30 each to give notice so the cheapest you can do it for is about £110. There are various limitations on number of guests, days and times available but each registry office seems to have different rules. You usually can't get the cheap rate on a Saturday / quite a few limit the guests to 2 witnesses. A Saturday and lots of guests and the prices can get much greater. Also the registry offices themselves vary tremendously. The one in my town is in a very boring modern building but the one in the next town is in a lovely old building in a park and it's cheaper. The one in the town where I work is nice but considerably more expensive. I am going to a wedding in the summer at a registry office on a Friday, I think they are limited to 10 guests but again that was £50 and it's in an impressive looking old house - will look great on the photos so shop around and see what there is at the different registry offices near you.

    As for trying your dress on - if he doesn't want to see it you will have to send him out when you try it on. Or could you go round to a friend's to try it on?

    What sort of wedding do you want? Lots of guests for a reception or just a few of you. I've been to plenty of weddings where the food was made by friends of the family or where everyone was asked to bring a plate of something for a buffet. Usually you get a really good spread - a lot more interesting than a boring "wedding meal" in a restaurant. Paper plates and disposable cups and off you go. You could even ask if a few people could bring some of those rather than a plate of food. Don't worry too much about the amount you have to spend. I've been to lots of weddings and can assure you that the best weddings I've been to certainly weren't the most expensive. In fact some of the best I've been to were done on a very tight budget.

    I'm sure you can come to some arrangement about the best man / person to give you away. You'll have to sit down together and rack your brains for suitable people. You may need a compromise on the divorce papers thing. Could you agree to do half each?

    Awwwww I had to laugh...........not at your predicament, but because you and your situation sound SO much like me!!!! In the end I gave up with it all, really couldn't be bothered with all the hassles and palavar, then I had a panic in a hotel room that was set up for one of though very pink, very flouncy weddings - I freaked and had to get out ASAP!!! So happy now we haven't bothered....although he keeps hinting, and I keep making excuses

    BUT I can see you haven't got to that place yet, and really want to do this, so let's all help you hey Have you gone through the budget weddings thread and got any ideas??

    Sat here trying not to cry.

    It's now March and I'm not allowed to have a cheap silver engagement ring because he can't afford to buy one. He's self employed. Well, would be if he could get any work or people would pay him on time when he does.

    He asked the person I wanted to give me away (my Dad died years ago) to be his best man without telling me what he was thinking.

    Well now you don't have to follow the traditional ways, my aunt had two best men just for her, so there were three at the wedding in total. Is there any reason why that person couldn't give you away, then nip to the other side of the altar and become the best man too?? Think outside the box and make the situation work for you both, also saves on a fish and chips after or whatever you want to do afterwards, if at all??

    He needs to get a copy of his divorce papers because he's lost them, but can't afford to do it. He won't let me pay for them.
    Originally posted by Ungrateful Mare
    Okay you may have to be sneaky with this one, is there a family member (or that best man person) that will 'loan' him the money, but you pay them the money for it?

    He really wants to organise everything because his ex and her family left him feeling like a spare part from the moment he asked her.
    Originally posted by Ungrateful Mare
    Yeah I could understand this, BUT then what you need to make him realise is that he's now doing that to you! What I would do is list out all the things that have to be sorted etc, and choose which ones you each do, and select some that need to be joint decisions that you both have input on.

    I've bought a cheap dress that is shoved at the back of the wardrobe still in its plastic bag from Amazon. It's nice, but it's a £25 dress bought online. I can't take it out and try it on because he is always in when I get back from work and he says I'll have to buy a new one if he sees even a bit of it.
    Originally posted by Ungrateful Mare
    Right well I would tell him if HE sees it, and you apparently have to have a new one if he does, then HE will have to pay for it.....pretty sure he won't look then Got a friend or work colleague that will let you iron it etc nearer the day or on a day that you want to try it on? That can't be too hard surely, I don't have much in the way of family either, and only have a couple of friends, but know I could go borrow their iron and try clothes on at theirs......would save mine getting covered in dog fur here

    I've been looking up the prices for registry office things. I can't stand the idea of marrying here. And then there's the paperwork,
    Originally posted by Ungrateful Mare
    Yep can empathise with you, didn't fancy the reg office either.......BUT you want this it seems, and if you really want to do this, you may have to just go with it. Maybe one day when you two are a bit more flusher, you could have a blessing or renew your vows somewhere nicer. Many people have done that when they couldn't afford a nicer place.

    I can't afford to take time off work unpaid, no honeymoon as work would refuse permission anyway - and we can't afford anything, wedding rings and shoes, a bunch of flowers, getting somebody to do something with my horrible hair and the cost of the bus fare home again.
    Originally posted by Ungrateful Mare
    Again.....the honeymoon can come later, or lots of people ask for donations towards one now instead of presents they don't need as they already live together. Even a short UK weekend away would do for now (check out the deals on the UK holiday boards etc), that's what most of our parents and grandparents etc, did back in the day. It's not the most important aspect of it all

    Again better wedding rings could come later down the line, or a really nice eternity ring instead? Personally I like plain classic styles and they are cheaper too, he doesn't need to have one so that could cut the cost? Flowers can be cheaper than what you think, loads of tips in the cheaper wedding thread. Shoes can be cheap online etc, and then dolled up with clips etc, bus fare, well I'm sure his family would chip in with that, OR somebody might offer to taxi you there and back etc?

    Yep hair, can agree with you there!!! Mine has fallen out twice after a car accident, so I will no longer have the flowing locks I'd like for a wedding but hey ho, got to make the best of what you have - go get a haircut and colour you want from a hairdressing college, very cheap or use Groupon like I do for cheap offers. Then if you can't find one for hair up or afford it, practise, and practise - check out You Tube tutorials, video yourself doing your style so you don't forget etc, but I'm sure there must be somebody you know that could help you do the back if you struggle, and the same with your make up, just keep practising it.


    I didn't think anybody would ever want to marry me, I love him very much, but I really wish I could have had a romantic proposal, one I could have seen, I want to wear a dress that costs more than my bus pass, I want to look pretty for once in my life. but I just can't see how to afford all this in a million years, never mind eight months. And I'm going to be there all on my own. At least he has family that would come if we could afford to pay for guests.

    I'm not looking for thousands of pounds of stuff. I want to feel special, have flower petals thrown at me (I'm going to collect and dry them myself over the summer)

    The fact you love him very much, is what you should be focussing on the most.......not all the wedding 'stuff', traditions and expectations, strip that back and it's the love that's left, focus on that I'd rather have a solid love and relationship with a cheap wedding, than spend eyewatering thousands of pounds on 'stuff' just for one day, then split up after say 2 years and that debt still needs to be paid off I've seen that happen so many times, what's the point????
    Send me an invite and I'll throw my dried rose petals all over you, I was doing a similar thing.......but as I say, can't be bothered with it all

    Can somebody give me a kick?

    Hopefully I have now? Seriously young lady, don't get caught up in the consumer trap when you don't need to, think about the love and that this is a celebration of that, not a photshoot for Vogue or a celeb wedding, leave all that hype to those that can afford to throw away £20K just for ONE day of showing off
