Food is expensive… Heck… A wedding is expensive!

I know I am not telling anyone anything new here but… man! We just started talking to caterers and florists… and wow! Things can really add up. Dan and I are both pretty money conscious so it hit us hard when we saw the first catering proposal. Wow. Here’s the thing… normal weddings are expensive… our wedding will be even more so because it has to be kosher.

I was still distracted by the shiny object on my ring finger… much less had started planning. Then the oddest thing started happening…......
