Pretty sure we all do this! Some days it seems so manageable and others, you think, “This is SOOOO MUCH MONEYYYY.” I greatly look forward to the day AFTER the wedding when I don’t have to obsess over every dollar we spend because “That could have gone to the wedding!”

@ohheavenlyday: hell yes! I can’t wait  to be able to just take a break from spending for a bit. I feel like my bank account is a constant one way exit, nothing goes in, it only goes out!

@MrsMcGyro: 

A break from spending, a break from ANTICIPATING spending, a break from feeling guilty if we go out to an expensive dinner because $100 could have gone to, I don’t know, wedding party gifts. August 21st will be so awesome because we can wake up that morning and NEVER AGAIN have to think about what portion of the money in our account needs to be set aside for wedding stuff. Yayyyyyyyyyyyyyy!!!

I think many of us do this to some degree.

I flip flop constantly between feeling like we’re doing great to freaking out that there’s no way we’ll be able to pay for all of this next month.

I was feeling pretty good until last night when the IRS sent me a letter saying I owe them $495 from 2009…. decided not to freak out, and I’ll look into it later this week when I have time.  Life will go on, the wedding will happen, money will be spent, but we’ll be able to eat dinner and pay our bills.  (I think 😉 )

🙂 It’s a tough feeling, but you aren’t the only one riding that coaster!

This is exactly how I feel.  One day I’ll feel like the money will all be worth it and we shouldn’t worry too much about going over our already small budget…the next I’ll be thinking about scrapping the wedding all together.
