    No.  A party and a vacation are not things we would go into debt for.

    Absolutely not. I would have gotten married at the courthouse before taking on debt for a wedding.

    I would never even think of it, but we only have 1 loan for his car. We are anti debt for anything other than large necessities. (cars, housing, medical procedures)

    I didn’t but we defintely could have made a dent in our car loans/student loans/mortgage with that money.

    No way Jose.  That’s not our style.

    Nope.  We decided to have a small wedding to maintain our level of savings and to diminish hurt feelings to those who we wouldn’t be able to or didn’t want to invite.  Many women (and their SOs) on here are older (above 28) and thus have the ability to have a large wedding without impacting their financial goals.  The thing is, I realized, I’m not entitled to a wedding of my dreams and sometimes people forget that on here.

    There are very few things for which I would go into debt. Our wedding is not one of them.

    Absolutely not. Everything has been paid in cash by paying off one thing at a time.

    I voted yes because some people consider a credit card balance debt?? We put some on a credit card but it was paid off right away. 

    I never would have depended on a cc or gotten a loan for something like a wedding or honeymoon. If you can’t afford it you shouldn’t have it

    I would go into debt for a wedding and honeymoon if we needed to, up to a couple thousand dollars. But, we saved all of our extra money and I contributed my work bonus, and we did not need to go even $1 in debt. We even have some left over for professional prints when pics finally come in. I do not see debt as a bad thing as I have an unbelievable amount of discipline and willpower when it comes to debt management. Not to mention an excellent credit score.
