Tall to your financial advisor at your bank. They will know more about your specific situation and be able to give you the best advice. It is free to see a financial advisor at your bank.

err, not the best idea, but if you’re short on cash and need something fast just this once maybe go sell plasma? It’s like donating blood and you can do it once a week for some quick cash

I don’t understand why you are “bumping” this thread every minute or so…

The best advice I have for the reception bill is to call the venue/caterer/whoever you owe it to and try to work out a new payment plan.  Explain the situation, and see if they can work with you.  Most people would rather get $50 at a time over a longer period than chance not seeing any of the money.  As much as I hate borrowing or asking for money, maybe you could see if your or his parents would be willing to help with that last $400?

Also, I would go through clothing/household items that you don’t want/use anymore and try selling them on ebay or craigslist.  You can sell wedding items that way, too.

I would also be 100% willing to drive as far as necessary for a job, if I were in your position.  An hour really isn’t that far, especially when compared with not having a job at all.

I would also put something on sittercity and craigslist offering babysitting services from your home.  I understand that you have a little one, too, but it’s not that much harder to watch 2 children, and if you’re that strapped it’s worth looking into.

Maybe also put an ad out there offering to do odd jobs, both you and your fiance could potentially do that.

Also, for the pre-wedding sale items – I recommend branching out the forms of payment you are willing to accept.  Sign up for paypal (it’s free), and accept payment that way.  Personally, I will NEVER purchase anything from a private online seller unless I can pay with paypal.  It’s the only form of payment that is both verifiable and secure enough for me to feel comfortable.  So for anyone like me, seeing that you will only take concealed cash, postal money order, or western union is enough to make me not even respond to your ads.
