My bank has the option to set the amount you want deposited to your account per transaction....up to $10 I think. 

     wow.. that is -pretty awesome!  I've never heard of a bank doing that. Who do you bank with?

      I will def. be getting my FI and groom present to be delivered by our groomsmen the day of our wedding. I will most likely be getting him an really nice engraved watch. He is obsessed with watches (as he says they are his only accessory lol). He gets a new watch every Christmas but never anything crazy. I think starting the tradition of a new nice watch on our wedding day is great. I will probably engrave it with something to do about time..."It's about time" "Till the end of time" or possibly something between the two of us. I will decide closer to the date!

      Even a trillion hearts are still too few to hold all the love I have for you<3

We started saving around February and have 100 or so automatically come out of each of our paychecks and go directly into savings accounts. <--Awesome idea on my fiance's part. I never miss the money and it's adding up rather quickly. And I'm soo with you about expenses adding up quickly.. I love the budget program on weddingwire.com.. Although I realized I have already spent over $500 and not a whole lot to show for it. :-/


        We do the bank account thing too. Every week $50.00 goes from my pay check and every 2 weeks $100 goes from his pay check into our shared savings account. That way we save $400 a month towards wedding costs. I think it has been very helpful because it's not a TON of money at once.

        We use CHASE bank and do this too!  We have been saving since January and cant believe how much we have saved up already!!!!!


        We also got our first joint credit card through Chase, the UNITED EXPLORER card. This way all wedding items go on it, but we only buy what we can pay off immediately.  And we are accumulating miles for free future trips!  Too bad we didnt have the card back when I bought my wedding dress, LOL!

        We use Capital One Venture Card (the one Alec Baldwin promos). We put all joint stuff and major purchases. If you spend so much in the first 3 months, they reward  you with extra points. Have had it open for almost a year and have racked up over $700 worth in flights. It will be perfect for when we are ready to book the DW.

          I did a Boudoir shoot, which was a total surprise for my husband because it is TOTALLY out of my comfort zone! I also got him a nice watch that he had been looking at.

            I did cuff links. He didn't have a pair and while he doesn't wear them too often, he did mention wanting a pair for formal events.

I plan to make the "for your eyes only" kind of album and add the pictures myself!

                This is an awesome idea! I'm sure your future hubby will absolutely love it!

                  Thanks!! I'm super excited to do it, having a hard time not telling him about it! Can't wait to see his reaction.
