    This I can't help with... I don't have one and I'm afraid to make one! hahah

     

    Thankfully... I haven't spent much. But I'm so damn frugal.... I watch every penny. I need to keep myself on task. Otherwise... if I let my FI have his way... we will have spent our life savings.

     

    When we were first discussing weddings, this was prior to deciding to do a destination. I said, "HHoney lets sit down and talk about the budget" his response, "Babe i don't know how much weddings cost, let's try to price things out and then we will decide how much we can spend" HUH?!?! No way dude!! that's how you spend too much money!!!!!!

     

    So...... I put a nail in that coffin and we both spoke about prices we were comfortable with and went from there. Now I really need to start tracking on these expenses so they don't get out of hand.

                    Do you know which airline you are flying on?  Do you know how much it will be to check it?

                      I don't know which airline yet. But whatever it will be better than paying for 3 different bags abd possibly forgetting something
