What happens when (just two months after meeting) a Baptist preacher's son and small-town pastor's daughter surprisingly discover they've committed the ultimate faux pas? Now it's a journey of finding out what it is to love a little baby surprise and what to do about this new husband.

Cost of a Baby

I'm almost positive that having a baby is going to more than double the amount of bills, groceries, clothing, and all other items that take away from my fun fund.  However, I'm hoping to be strategic about everything and keep cost as low as possible.  I did, in-fact, manage to keep mine and the hubby's wedding weekend an un-godly cheap affair.  And I don't think we missed out on anything.  Total cost was probably less than what many people spend on flowers.

Dress:                          $130 (including shipping)
Veil                             $10  (I made it)
Gloves                         $0  (Yohan's mother's from her wedding)
Tailor:                          $ 80
Yohan's tux                 $ 160
Rings (mine and his)     $ 2030
Photographer               $575
B&B including 3 nights
in a four room suite,
couples massages,
champagne, roses,
chocolates, etc. and
set up and
hosting of wedding      $1250
Bouquet                      $ paid for by parents
Reception dinner         $ paid for by parents

TOTAL                     $4,235
