Advice-how to pay for wedding?
Posted 02 September 2008 - 06:38 PM
WHERE DID YOU COME UP WITH THE MONEY?!
Have you been saving for awhile? Picked up extra jobs? Somehow cut back in other areas of your life? Going into and/or adding to debt?
When we first started talking about a DW (which, will definitely be cheaper then if we stayed home, well, the way we're going to do it anyway) we figured we could swing it for next summer. But now that we've looked into it more seriously, it's still going to cost some money that we don't have. I think we're going to have to wait an extra year in order to save the money
Anyone have any advice or tips? How are all of you swinging it? Money doesn't grow on trees *sigh*

just do not borrow from a 401(k)

Maybe the money issue is why long engagements are so popular these days.

We gave ourselves a small budget and just stuck with it. We didn't cut back anywhere and we were super lucky because for about 4 months, my husband worked in Alaska and made double the amount he normally does so we just used that money for the wedding.

Some how, you will find a way. You just need to prioritize what is important to you and what you are willing to spend on because you can easily get carried away with wedding expenses.
