      Sometimes when I see how much money is due at a certain time I just take the amount and divide by the weeks left and then I know how much money I need to put away each week and usually when I see that smaller number I feel a lot better bc then your like ok well I can do that!

        No package, but we have only put down the deposit. And deposits on everything that we need and this is the first time I really added everything up.  I guess its not an insane amount for our wedding but still frightening to actually see the totals.

            Brandy, which package are you going with for Beaches?  We are going with the BB package, but I don't think I'm going to have them add any additional centerpieces to the additional tables.  I don't think it would be missed either and we are only doing the cocktail reception.  What do you think?

              We are doing the seaside serenade package.  Yeah I wouldnt worry about it if your just doing the cocktail reception most people will just mingle around anyway.

                Since the Canadian and American dollar are almost at par, I paid for most of our resort stay this week. Hopefully, by the time we get married we have enough guests booked to get 7 days comp. We're also paying 50% deposit to our photographers this week. Still looking to get decent flights. And that should be all our major items.

                 

                Dress should be in transit, I'm working on printing invitations, probably buying some decor this week with the dollar parity.... hmm.... where else can I keep spending money (without extending our budget)?

                  i did the same thing this week. Paid the enitre wedding quote cause I didn't want to chance a fluctuation in the currency. Unfortunately I already paid half to my photographer last month but bought the other half in american cash this week and will only pay the day of the wedding for the balance. I too am thinking of what else to buy in the states. I think I might get the maracas now, chair sashes, fans and whatever else I can think of. :)

                    I have been thinking of totaling everything up, but I know it will stress me out, so I will keep it at individual amounts!  We too have only done deposits... and haven't booked our flight yet.  That's the only part left that we haven't done anything with because I was hoping prices out go down, but it looks like airline tickets are going to be going up from what I'm hearing. 

                     

                    After this next paycheck I get I'm going to put some more money down on our stay (and possibly pay of the photographers stay...we are bringing her with us)...  In a few weeks I have a raise coming so once I get that, we can start paying a little bit more over time rather than a lump sum!  It's just less stressful that way!


                    Married the love of my life in April!!

                      lisadias - it helps that my sister lives in Virginia, so I just have everything shipped there. We're going there for Christmas too, so I can look over everything and make final decisions. I'm really trying to avoid making unnecessary purchases since we have no idea how many guests will end up coming.

                       

                      Ellabaja - that's a great idea to start using your pay increase to pay down more stuff. I've been working a ton of overtime to try and save more money for wedding and hopefully start a baby fund too.
