I’m so sorry.  I know how you feel.  I just posted today about how my FH and I went for a cake tasting and it was aweful.  We may now have to either buy a new wedding cake or use theirs for the cutting and order our own sheet cake for cutting.  Luckily I just found out the catering will cut our cake at no additional cost.  Either way we will still have to shell out money we didn’t budget for.

unexpected costs are no fun!

At least you learned a valuable lesson to take care of those teeth! (I’m almost obsessive when it comes to that and I still have regular cavities!) 🙁

Just take it one day at a time…somehow money usually seems to stretch to "just enough" if you’re careful and creative!

Good luck, and I’m sorry you’re having to deal with those big unexpected expenses!

I totally feel for you with this situation.  A month ago I was layed off from my job because of the economy and I recently (as in 2 days ago) found out I lost one of my scholarships for school and was forced to pay thousands of dollars out of pocket.  Unfortunately, some of that money had to come out of my wedding fund.  My Fiance and I are now faced with the difficult task of asking for help from our parents, which we really didn’t want to do. But the goods news is, our parents are really supportive and really excited for us and have offered help.  We just had to swallow our pride.  Everything is moving along with the wedding and I know it will turn out great, but that doesn’t mean we didn’t hit snags along the way.  I guess I just wanted you to know that you aren’t the only one out there who has gone through it 🙂

Charmedbride, I completely feel for you!  I was laid off two days ago and was in between dental surgeries for an implant.  That was not covered by insurance, so I’ve spent $4500 on it so far and have more to go.  Hang in there!

I had surgery in January to remove my gallbladder and the bills are outrageous- and I have good insurance!  You would think that for almost $16k a night, the hospital could at least have not let my IV thing get air bubbles in it every 10 minutes, so it would SHRIEK LOUDLY at 3 a.m.

Immigration costs. It’s not just the visa that costs money! By the time we’re through all the forms/interviews/lawyers/adjustments we’re looking at over 5k. This doesn’t even include moving my stuff to Kentucky. lol I’m thinking I might have to sell all my stuff & just start new in my new home 🙂
