Wedding for Karl + Riana

Deutsch: (English is underneath)

Hallo liebe Community, Wir sind hier um zu Fragen für Spenden oder auch einfach ein Kaffe, damit wir unsere Hochzeit feiern können. Ich bin 28 Jahre alt, und meine Verlobten ist gerade 31 Jahre alt. Verschiedene ungeplante Notfälle (Meine Geliebte wurde innerhalb von 6 Wochen zweimal operiert.) haben das Sparschwein geleert und jetzt ist nichts mehr für unsere Hochzeit übrig, aber insbesonderes damit der Vater meine Verlobtens hier fliegen kann und so kann er sehen, wie seine jüngsten tochter heiratet. 

Wir haben noch nicht einmal einen Termin festgelegt, da der Papierkram von zwei verschiedenen Stellen überprüft werden muss. Dieser Prozess dauert etwa 8 Monate, wir werden also die Zeit nutzen, um zu planen und vorzubereiten.

Um ehrlich zu sein, ich habe nichts anderes als meinen ewigen Dank und meine Gebete für diejenigen, die großzügig sind und uns helfen, eine einfache Hochzeit mit ihrem Vater zu führen. Gott segne Sie alle.


Hello everyone, 

I'm here asking for help to fund my wedding and reception with my beloved. Everything was planned to be okay, but then suddenly my fiance had to move. And steadily any kind of savings for the past 8 months have been drained away into various problems or emergencies. (Including her hospitalization, she is currently still recovering at home) 

I am 28 years old, and my beloved is 31 years of age. We have been together for years, and I asked her to marry me during a romantic night walk on the beach. And I just want to be able to give us a nice and simple wedding with her family able to attend. 

The funds would be used to pay for the reception, music, photographer, church costs, and we had planned to fly her father from Madagascar to Germany so that her father can be there for the wedding. So the flight, assistance and paperwork costs for her Father to come, are a large part of what I'm asking for. Her family and friends are helping, and offering to do things that are usually expensive for much less. But even that is out of reach due to our current financial situation. We don't want an expensive venue, or some luxurious dress, or a fancy cake. A honeymoon isn't planned, it would mean more then the world to her if her father can be there to see her get married, walk down the aisle, and everything.  

We unfortunately do not have a set date yet, as my beloveds paperwork requires a 8 months of verification before we can start. I am hoping and praying that I can find the means to do this before the first part of the verification process is completed in 6 months. At that point I will rapidly be striving to pay and book a reception location, as well as confirming the date, informing our priest so we can set a church date, informing all the various family members of the exact time, and hopefully being able to surprise her father with this special trip to see his youngest daughters wedding. It would also be the first time I would meet her father in person, though I did ask his permission to marry his beautiful daughter during a video call. 

I have honestly nothing to give but my eternal thanks and my prayers for everyone who would be generous and help us have a simple wedding with her father present. God Bless all of you.
