I don’t mean to be nosy but I figure this is the internet and you don’t have to answer if you don’t want to When you and your SO got married how much money did you both have saved up (in your bank accounts not just for the wedding)? Also, how much money did you both make when you got married?

@RoseyBee: What do you mean how much did you make? Are you talking income wise or cash gifts?

@RoseyBee: We are college students… so we’re not making a lot at all. I just graduated and still looking for a job. He works full-time, but still we have one income and don’t make a lot. We don’t have anything really saved up in our bank accounts. It was near impossible to save under these conditions. I think I have maybe $700 in my savings account that we’ll have to begin using if I don’t get a job soon.

We dont have enough saved. And we earn about $90K a year combined, which is not enough in new england (see a trend?). Haha.

We make about 170K combined, and have 50K for the wedding. However, we have been together many years.

Combined we make about 75k, which isnt a whole lot for here. But in our separate savings we have about 15k combined (only some is wedding savings).
