Huge day for me today, with the exception of things we pay for the day before or day of the wedding (nails, hair, hotel) we have made all our final payments. Whew- a serious weight has been lifted off my shoulders. Money was the biggest worry I have had over the last 10 minths of planning and I feel quite accomplished having been able to pay for most of our wedding with a little help from parents.
How is everyone else feeling about the final payments? With just 16 days to go I’m soo anxious to just get married 🙂

Woohoo good job girl! We still have ~6 vendor payments left, but the huge check for our venue/catering I paid last week.

YAY!! I am paying off the cake tomorrow and the DJ on tuesday then we just have the last payment to the venue and we’re making that at the rehearsal dinner. Its just a small payment though as we’ve been making monthly payments to them. Everything else is paid in FULL!! its a great feeling for sure, especially knowing we paid for it all ourselves with the exception of the rehearsal dinner. FI’s parents are paying for that. We also have NO wedding debt, we didn’t charge a single penny and that feels amazing!!!
Don’t forget to put away money for anyone your tipping!!

Thats awesome. I won’t need to make final payments to any of my vendors until a week before, a day before and day off. Yes, they are pretty lax about payments here. My baker won’t even accept a deposit until 8 days before the wedding.
