- Wedding: April 2013
Very relieved and obviously money isn’t a polite topic for normal friends, so I figure I’ll turn here where I’m relatively anonymous.
My dad just called and between the amount he, my mom, and I am putting in, we’re fully funded for both the wedding and the honeymoon, with a good 10% margin of error on top in case costs go over what I’m projecting. My amount and my mom’s amount are already cash sitting in a checking account specifically for the wedding and under my control, and my dad will be doing direct deposit every 2 weeks between now and the wedding (he’s good for it).
What a relief! I was planning a wedding budget I could pay for with cash if he didn’t come through, and I won’t inflate my costs any because of this news, but now I can divert that 1000+ a month I was going to have to save every month between now and the wedding into something else, like saving for a move/home. WHEW!
I know someone out there can relate!
