- Wedding: September 2010
My fiance and I are planning our dream wedding! We have the funds to plan this thing AND able to take a vacation, emergency funds,,etc. However, even though we are the ones paying for the wedding entirely according to a friend of mine (frenemy) we are spoiled.
See, she is having her wedding next year. She is having the same number of people that I am having however the difference is, her fiance and her family are paying for the wedding. She basically hasn’t put in anything financial to it due to “tradition” (she brags about it.) Now with my wedding,we are the ones paying for it so of course we get more say about it. Sure, it may be an extravagence to some but we can afford it so why not? I am getting sick of being called spoiled when it is really us who are funding this things.
She is telling us to put the money away for other things but really, we can afford it. We are having our vacation next year and I have an emergency fund just in case something awful happens. We are not planning on buying a house because my husband travels a lot on business so I am planning in the near future to start a house fund but right now we are not looking to buy a house because we aren’t even going to be living in one long enough to make a decision. I really want to snap at her to mind her own damn business. Am I a bridezilla?
