After being engaged for 2 1/2 years, my fiance and I are making the arrangements for our wedding in September. As with all couples planning their wedding, we've been concerned about finances, but we're in a tighter bind than most young couples. Traditionally, the bride's family will provide substantial financial assistance to soon-to-be newlyweds. Being a gay couple however, we're anything but traditional. Neither of our families ever anticipated being asked to help fund their son’s wedding, so we’re in a position where we have to fund the entire thing ourselves. And being fresh out of college means that we’re both stuck with a mountain of student loan debt that takes up the majority of our budget. After sitting down and considering the situation we were in further, we came up with an idea. Rather than creating a wedding registry with things that we wanted - or worse, receiving a mountain of gifts like blenders and toasters that we didn’t want - why not ask people to help us out with the event itself? After all, the wedding ceremony and reception will be so much more memorable than any material gift anyone could get us. So we’re asking for help from you - our friends and family - to help us have a fantastic, memorable wedding day!
