- Wedding: August 2015
Me and my partner have decided it will hurt too many people if we eloped, so we are having an actual wedding now.
we are keeping it small, 50p, but even so, it will end up costing us 10k minimum, 15k comfortably, and another 10k ish for the honeymoon, 20-25k all up.
I know its it’s a special day we will remember the rest of our lives, but I am having huuge issues justifting the spend to myself.
We are trying to save for a house, and we don’t earn a lot between us, so it is 25k that could definitely be put into something more long term, but I really don’t want to regret spending the money and having a stingy wedding.
any bees have any ideas how to either get over these feelings or ways to cut cost so that maybe we can bring the cost down to maybe 5k for the wedding? I know it’s probably impossible but I’m a pretty frugal person.i know some people spend like 30k plus, but even 10k for one day seems ridiculous for us right now :/
