Talk to the financial aid office.  See where the error is coming from, and if it can be corrected in your favor. Obviously it means you’d take out more loans than you have now, but maybe it’s worth it if you aren’t dipping into your wedding account.  They may be able to fix it, but you probably wouldn’t get the money right away.  At the very least, you’d be able to replace the money that came out of your wedding fund.

Good luck!

I’d also talk to the Financial Aid office in person if you can!  This should be easily fixed!

I’ve always applied for student loans after the deadlines, and I’ve never had a problem.  What is a “self loan”?

Will they let you do a payment plan? I’d honestly get a second job to pay for it then take out loans (totally wish I had done this now that im 70k in debt)

@MrsWBS:  Agreed!

I am $35K in debt from student loans… I totally wish I wouldve “spread out” my time in college and worked to help pay for everything instead of just taking out a loan…  For example, I wish I wouldve taken classes for five years instead of cramming it all into four – so that way my costs would decrease and I wouldve had time to work more!

 Paying $500 a month for student loan repayments SUCKS!!!

I would ask about payment plans since it was an error on their part.  At my school they offer a payment plan to everyone where you make 3 smaller payments over the course of the semester instead of one big one at the begining.   I would talk to them and emphasize that since this was an error on their part the responsibility to correct it is on them.

Something similar happend to me when I was in school but I was not planning a wedding then so I can only imagine your stress.

Due to some new law or rule, I had to jump through hoops to renew my financial aid money and it took months (so I went a few weeks without books to classes, which was so tough because I needed those.)  I had to borrow money from my father and sister and that tided me over until the issue was resolved but it was a pita and a nightmare.
