    So we have our budget set, and its such a tight one. As long as nothing comes up between now and the wedding we should be golden. But I get nervous thinking of lifes mishaps between now and than...I know something will come up, and Im worried we wont have enough money by our wedding date.

    Im beginning to think we should of prolonged it one more season.

      I feel the same way! Because things have come up and I have had to dip into the funds. I am just hoping money will just magically appear my my bank account =)

        I am definitely worried, since I mis-guessed on some of the budget items. So, I'm going over on some estimates, but I have been under budget on others. So, I'm hoping in the end that it balances out. And, that nothing unexpected comes up. Thankfully I only have a few more months, so I can hope there will be no more surprises.

          I definitely feel the same way. I feel like I went way over-budget but it balanced out b/c my parents are giving me some money towards the wedding now. BUT - we keep having extra people added on and that is really stressing me out b/c we were barely affording the wedding as it is... I agree it makes me think maybe we should have put off the wedding until the fall just so we could have saved up more money...

            I am not getting married till 2010 and have barely started planning yet, but I know that I will feel the same way! We purchased a brand new home in November of 2007 and just moved in last August. With a new house, there is soooo much to do. We have no blinds, no deck, no fence, had to buy some new furniture to actually fill some space ... it seems never ending! I also just bought a new car on the weekend because mine died on me!! Ugh! I suppose all these things are part of real life and everyone makes it work somehow but, some days I wish I could go back to being 19 with not a worry in the world other than when my next paper was due!!!!!!

                Staying within budget is definitely a priority for me. There are areas that I am willing to splurge and there are others I am cutting back on. My goal is to get the biggest bang for the buck. It is easy to get carried away with emotions at times and swipe that plastic card.

                  Yes I am worried about money. I have put everythinginto my savings so I don't touch funds before we leave. I'm taking a credit card just incase we need more $$$$ and I'm soooo hoping my family steps in and gives some money as a gift. That would really help.

                    I am on the same page as all of you. Lifes little worries has already come up twice. I keep telling myself that this will help me keep it simple. When you are paying for the wedding yourselves and still have to accomodate flying across the country for funerals and my car dying... you slowly readjust. Can you spell DIY? How about SALE?

                    We will get there... all of us!

                      Hey, both FH and I were laid of 5 & 4 months before our wedding. If anybody can tell you things will still work out, I can. lol
                      Don't stress about it, things will happen for the bad and things will happen for the good. More good than bad. Trust me.

                      P.S. We both have jobs now and back on track :)
