Today I am having a freak out moment.
We are paying for the wedding and we owe 13k to the venue not including all the other little things we need. We needed to start saving when we got engaged but we had just bought a home and of course paid for things we needed. I am starting to freak out what if we can’t afford this wedding? I am really wishes we just eloped. WHY OH WHY didn’t we just go to Las Vegas!!!! Our families thats why. ok I know things will be fine but I am really freaking out today.

I know the feeling… We Just bought a house and was informed our first house note wouldnt be until Oct 1. WELL they told us wrong. September 1. GRR. I ask myself every day why didnt we just elope!?! But like you, because our families.
It’ll be fine, you still have over a year 🙂 penny pinch!

I feel the same. I am running out of time and money! Take my advice and don’t spend extra money on shopping and things that can wait until after the wedding, save as much as you can now.

Wow, I guess if that includes venue, ceremony, food, drink, cake, and other stuff (DJ, flowers) I guess that’s not too bad. We bought a house, car, and got engaged all in the same year – and paying for the wedding ourselves. So though we’re making huge payments, everything is going on my credit card (points and I can create a dispute on any charge if a vendor ends up being bad).
-Good Luck it will all be alright!
