@MsJ2theZ:  Yes, unfortunately. I was not one of those bees that paced herself. I didn’t pick my florist until the last month. That was a huge expense. And since it was my last big expense, I got a little too excited about not having to spend more money, forgetting that I still would probably have last minute expenses (boy, did I).

It sucked, and I’ll be paying off the credit card for another month and a half, but it was worth it. Most of the last minute expenses were gifts, which I was glad to give.

Yup- I spent my entire salary last month.  I dipped into savings for $1000.  I figure after the wedding I will save back up to the goal that I set for myself.  I did spend a LOT of money on gifts.  I’ll pay it all off in one fell swoop, because I don’t plan on spending nearly 100k on rando crap but it sure is adding up.
