People keep telling me that a bride should enjoy the wedding planning experience after all, you get to be a bride once a lifetime, well, supposedly.
So far, I haven't been super squealy excited or psyched, strangely. I guess it's really hard to make any plans with an unlimited budget and when I say 'unlimited', I don't mean that I have an endless budget to spend on anything and everything.
Instead, my definition of 'unlimited' in this instance is a zero budget. ;p

Most couples would have worked a couple of years and saved a fair bit before the guy decides to pop the question. Mr. C and I only started saving for our wedding which is to be held end this year although he proposed more than a year back!
He started his full time job mid February and before that, his part time job was only enough to support us for our daily needs such as food, rental, petrol and hand phone usage amongst other miscellaneous expenses!

I, on the other hand, didn't managed to save much despite several years of working due to family obligation and hanging out with friends also costs a fair bit when you're out eating, drinking, playing badminton or karaoke-in. My yearly visits to Australia to see Mr. C also saw me kissing my annual bonuses goodbye.

Occasionally, I would have moments of weakness and succumbed to retail theraphy (trust me, I really needed this occasionally to stay afloat) and this definitely takes a chunk out of one's remaining pay after deducting the main expenses.
So, with no budget and a wish for a dream wedding, I have my work cutout. Self-imposed torture, if you ask me.
But I believe, somehow, God will see me through this. I am learning to trust in Him and leave things in His very capable hands and because of that, I know that my wedding will be a beautiful event!
