    Life can be so unfair some time. I am sorry you are having to deal with these additional stresses.

        girl, i feel you! that's the way of life, unfortunately.

        i wish we all were rich!

        my FI is unemployed right now so it's hard to save money so we might have to resort to using our cc so lets hope he finds a job by then!!

          Dont worry. You are not alone. My wedding is in November and I dont know how I am going to manage. Things just keep coming up and I dont know what to do either. People keep telling me that things will work kout. I sure hope they do but idk.

            haha, my FI just told me that his truck broke down. *sigh*

            looks like we'll be depending on my car. i am telling him to just bury it because it's too old to fix.

            all of us will get through it! just keep faith.

              right there with you too! i think we all are in the same boat.

              i needed new tires - $800!!!!! oh yea!!!

              but just think about it this way - at least you had the new job to pay for the window. if not - you would be dipping INTO the wedding fund to pay for it. think about how much worse it would be! i firmly believe that everything has a way of working itself out. just keep saving!!

                I am totally there with you. FI got laid off last year and it's been bouncing around from one job to another only to get laid off, business closing, lack of flexibility for school at each one. He finally has a great job and I just keep telling myself, it'll be better in a few months, by the time the wedding comes around we'll be able to afford all the stuff we need to contribute, etc. Then his truck's A/C goes out(its arizona, you can't not have A/C) and it could realistically die any day now because it's old, my insurance refuses to pay all my new medical expenses that have been coming up, and we have to move in 3 months! It's like we're barely juggling everything and keeping our debt from burying us, it just seems like one thing after another that comes up and the savings for the wedding is really suffering because of it.

                Guess I'll just have to save the OOT bags and other little stuff until the last minute. And hopefully the deposits aren't too much or can be paid closer to the wedding.

                Hope things start looking up for you money wise.

                  awww i think we all experienced this! it seemed like one thing after another (car repairs, speeding tickets, pay cuts at work, medical/dentistry bills), and if it wasn't us, it was almost everyone we knew losing their jobs ... we thought we'd end up with no one at the wedding! in the end it somehow all worked out. i think the pre-wedding stresses, especially the financial ones, are like mini tests of your relationship. you're not far off now ... you can do it!

                    Oh you poor thing, Not only to have to deal with the regular stress of planning a wedding but having to endure that kind of invasion is horrible. I am so sorry for you. The only thing you can do is be thankl it was not sorse. At least your car was not taken! But know that we all go thru something similar and somehow some way we all managed to find a way. You may not be able to see the way yet but it will show up eventually weather you realize it or not. So try to relax, keep looking at the bright side of things (that is one thing i have had to really try hard to do) and believe that in the end everything will somehow work out. For me this year it was a new vehicle and new tooth for FI (he broke his while eating some corn on the cob!). But I insisted that I was not going to marry a jock-o-lantern and therefore he must get his teeth fixed....OR ELSE! LOL
