As much as I’ve tried to not let the wedding drain my savings, when things have all shook out I do believe that I will have depleted it a bit. So first thing is probably replenishing that. After that we have a long list of things we want…. not sure what will take priority: 

– patio for the back yard

– tv for the man cave

– paying down/off FI’s car

– new washer/dryer

Ha unfortunately, to be honest it is going to pay off our honeymoon on our credit card so we don’t have to use the money we had before to pay for that! Whatever’s left over is going into our investment portfolios.

Fairly stable high dividend stocks.

Did you mean what are you doing with the cash for the wedding , or extra cash left over after the wedding?

We’re going to take a look and see how much we end up with.  Hopefully it’ll be a few thousand dollars so I can pay off the remainder of my student loans.  Then, we’ll put the amount I currently pay monthly towards his loans (which are significantly higher and at a better interest rate).

I think we’ll add it to our down payment on a home.

We invested it in a brokerage account that doesn’t have easy access (we have to call the broker and have them cut a check or wire it for us to use it). It really makes us take a step back when we think about using any of it.

We invested 25% in low risk, 25% in medium risk and 25% in “high growth” (high risk) and 25% in cash. Our goal is to not touch any of it until retirement and then spend it like crazy.
