I would put in toward a house…that would be a killer down payment.  I would totally do without the big fancy wedding if we were able to have that extra money toward our dream home.

Definitely a house. I could have my parents help me pay for the wedding but my home will be harder to pay for with my own money.

Show yourself fairy godmother!

Here in California, 25k is no where near a downpayment, so I’d choose wedding!

I’d take $5,000, have an amazing elopement/honeymoon with just the two of us, and use the remaining $20K for the house ๐Ÿ™‚

so, both… is that cheating???

Probably a wedding for us. We cant afford jack squat of a house in NYC, let alone a condo or apartment (especially one with room for a family!). Even if we could save up enough for a down payment, we could never afford the monthly payments!

Wedding! I know that seems nuts, and sometimes I feel the other way, but really a wedding is ONE TIME ONLY, and there are options for a house, wait and save that kind of thing. Oh, and I’m obsessed with weddings, that has a bit of impact too haha!

I read the title and instantly said house. For those just starting out, it’d be a blessing to put 25,000$ down flat. A wedding can be done on any budget, doesn’t need to be expensive, but houses will always cost an arm and a leg.

Wedding.  Here in southern cali 25K won’t be enough down payment for a shack, much less a house.  Plus a wedding is only once in a lifetime.  You can always save more for a house.
