We would have moved into our dream house already instead of staying in the one we are currently in. So much money just for one night of partying (yes I know we got married and I wouldn’t trade it, but it would have been the same marriage on a beach somewhere with just us)

Fence to keep the neighborhood dogs out, we don’t need help keeping ours in.

All new furniture in the house.

One freaking awesome vacation.

 

I wish he had given into my idea to elope, lol.

*sigh* A car.   I don’t own a car right now, but I could sure use one.  8 or 9 weeks of vacation.  I’d spend 4 weeks doing a European vacation, and 4 weeks in Asia.  I could furnish my fairly empty house with just about anything I want. In ground hot tub and pool.

After some of the amazing insight of ladies like you, we have decided a simple ceremony with cake at the church is in the best intrest so we can save money for a trip we both want to take.

My fiance’s student loans paid off!

But to be fair, it’s not really a straight substitution, because this money is a gift from our parents for the wedding – which they likely would not have done just to pay off his loans!

This is why we’re going low-budget, because I’d rather have more money to go toward a house to live in, or feeding our future kids. There’s more practical things we could spend $3,000 on, but I think it’s worth that much to have a nice party with family to celebrate and legitimize (for lack of a better word) our relationship.

It’s not a money issue that’s bothering me, it’s more the time consuming aspect of planning a wedding that’s driving me crazy.  I keep telling my mum that I will pay her $100 an hour if she will do all the wedding planning for me as I am just over trying to sort out minor details and coordinate various vendors etc!   So far, she has not accepted my offer  🙁

I would so have taken a 2 week trip to Italy with the money.  Maybe a new car for my son .  I have to say now that its done I think it was beautiful  but boy the thoughts of all I could have bought still linger sometimes.
