In the same boat…..

I am getting married in October, BFF is getting married at the end of July and all the financial obligations are KILLING me!  I had a mental breakdown last week (possible PMS as well?) because we will be in debt a few grand after the wedding – especially since I tried sooooo hard to pay for this wedding all in cash and be debt free at the end of it.  My Fiance was out of work for 2 months last yer due to a broken arm so $8000 was lost there…and we are horrible at saving and I hate being a money miser towards him.

All the baby showers, graduations, and birthdays in the next 3 months is NOT helping either!!

Good Luck – Fiance is telling me that by being financially stressed will ruin the whole wedding experience.  He’s right and I’m trying to stay focused on the brightside of things and not worry about things until AFTER the wedding – we only live once!

Is your BFF also your Maid/Matron of Honor (or BM?) Even if she isn’t, I’m sure she would understand the financial constraints. Don’t go into debt especially for someone else’s parties – maybe you could talk to her about it and see if you can agree to keep the “extra” events as low key (and lovely) as possible. If it’s a joint decision that might make it easier. Otherwise I can see you starting to feel resentful about the situation, which wouldn’t be fun at all (for you or her). I know when my girlfriends and I are counting the pennies we try to be honest about it and plan things that won’t cost the others much money.
