My friend Crafty shared this with me ages ago—on one of our wedding-crafting weekends—and I thought it was both pretty funny and pretty helpful. We’re still on our honeymoon (don’t worry, I scheduled this post).
Crafty’s sister is engaged and wants to get married, but has no interest in planning the actual wedding. Crafty’s all over planning things, so she offered to plan the wedding. The problem? They can’t seem to get anywhere.
Here are the conditions Crafty started with:
- Crafty Sis told her she’d rather have someone else plan her wedding.
- They are having a secular ceremony, so there’s no church to consider.
- They aren’t considering a destination wedding because it would be cost prohibitive for a few people that they truly want there.
- We have a gigantic family that we actually see on a regular basis. Their guest list isn’t made up of long-lost relatives; it’s people who they would rather share the celebration with (who would be deeply hurt if not invited).
- I included the question about parental contributions because I know our parents are planning to contribute—I’ve heard it from both my parents.
