- Wedding: February 2015
Our wedding is only costing us 5% of our total savings.
We didn’t really go into our savings for the wedding/honeymoon, so it stayed in tact during the wedding process and has grown since. Well, until very recently since we are closing on a house and already allocated money towards that as well as buying some new furniture once we do move.
We are paying for our entire wedding and honeymoon in advance. Payments will be made throughout the next 7 months and our families are contributing a little bit to help.
Anything we get in our wedding cards will be our savings! No debt and no paying anyone back.
We plan to buy a used car with the money we get and I get a new bed. The rest we are going to try to keep in savings…try…
who the heck has savings after a wedding?
My parents are paying for the wedding so we aren’t using any of our own money. After the honeymoon, we’ll have $23,000 but we are planning to buy a house by September at the latest, so that will definitely change!
@maganda: We’re kind of in the same boat. Wedding is around the $18,500 mark and I think the honeymoon is around $4,500 (FI is paying for it. I don’t know how much it costs). I know that I will have about $2,600 in savings when we get back from the honeymoon. Not sure about his expenses and this isn’t counting any monetary gifts.
I’d really like to use our monetary gifts to help us make my house feel like our house.
Hmm probably $3000-$4000 or so. We both actually just started saving within the last year and a half. We had a few major things that depleted our savings in that time frame, but our wedding isn’t coming out of our savings at all. Everything we’ve spent/are spending is from what we live off of, not what we stash away.
