It’s Your day and your money. If you can find a budget you feel comfortable with and no when it is all said and done you don’t regret it then don’t worry about it. I def don’t think you should put yourself into debt over it. That would cause more stress you don’t need. SO no matter what you can afford to spend you can have a lovely wedding on little or a lot.

I would like to just say few things about this. I agree that it is very tactless for your coworkers to tell you how to spend your money or how to plan your wedding. It is a personal choice on how you spend your wedding day. I have experienced nosey coworkers who want to give advice when it isn’t necessary.

However, I will say this. Sometimes brides lose track of the purpose of the wedding and get caught up with the planning, spending and anticipation of the wedding day. The only thing that really should matter is that you are in love with the person you are marrying and you want to spend your life with this person. The week after or even a day after the wedding, no one will care what color your flowers were or what you wore or what they ate. What I am saying is that it’s necessary to keep perspective of what is most important. And yes, saving money to buy a home, there is nothing wrong with that at all if that’s what you want. It is part of building the future for you and your partner.  You can plan a very  beautiful wedding and not spend a fortune on it if you are creative and do research. My advice is to savor every moment and try to find ways of expressing your true feelings for this person you have chosen to be your husband or wife.
