Ever since I was a little girl, I’ve had the following ingrained in my head: Save Money! My mom only bought things on sale. I watched my parents pack their lunches as well as ours every single day. Sometimes I take it to another level. For example, I love thrift stores the way others love Barney’s. The fact that I can find one-of-a-kind vintage-y stuff at bargain prices makes my heart soar. My mom would shake her head when she saw me wearing some old plaid blouse. “Why are you wearing that raggedy blouse. What about the germs?”
“But Mom, it’s cheap! And look how cute it is.”
So that is the mentality I have going into wedding planning. I am not looking for a Cinderella wedding. Stick with the basics, make it fun. And always ask…why? Why must I have flowers? Why must I have someone come out and do my make-up? I’ve been doing my own face for 30+ years.
So let’s get started.
I wanted the In-n-Out truck that rents their mobile truck out for events (including weddings) charging a minimum fee of $1,200. OMIGOD! How fun would that be? Who doesn’t love In-n-Out burgers? It wouldn’t break the bank. My guests would be full and happy! I’d be even happier considering the price. Friggin less than $10/person. SHAZAM!
End result? They’re available on my date, BUT the mobile truck only caters to the Southern California region. SHITE!
