You’re going to have to pay it all eventually, right? If your parents are contributing to the wedding they likely won’t to the honeymoon so I’d put the money there…

I would map out exactly what you’re doing for each aspect, and pay off the most expensive important things. Wouldn’t start with the honeymoon, even though it’s important. Food, photography, venue, those are VERY important in reguards to a wedding.

What Jenilynavette said. We paid our venue/food first because if everything else went horribly wrong, we’d still be able to have a party and feed people, lol.

Put your money on the biggest bill ASAP.  It’s easier to make smaller payments than really big ones!

I’m in the same situation, but i have a cheeky thought – darn i WANT that photogpraher & i WANT those rings. Pay them off & that way there is no turning back. The reception – we’ll have to make it work somehow! Don’t know whether i’d actually go ahead with it though…

@FutureWife517:  I’m with you here1 I’ve read soemwhere that when you have a large ‘debt’ (ie wedding) it’s more motivating to see the smaller things paid off first…

It’s my logic & i’m sticking to it 🙂 lol

@jenilynevette:  +1

I would start with the essential items. If, God forbid, a catastrophe happened and your budget is dramatically slashed, at least you will still have a venue and food, versus a great honeymoon but nowhere for your wedding.
