I would say saving money is always a good idea so it seems like a good idea to me. Weddings are also ridiculously expensive and it can be hard to stay in budget so every dollar you can save will help.

I don’t think saving money is ever a bad idea. And you don’t have to mention it or say it’s for a wedding.

Bottom line – if you have money to save, do it!

I pro’ly wouldn’t mention it’s wedding money if you aren’t engaged, but I agree with Firefly that saving is always good. I’ve been saving money (generally) for the last 5 years, and now we have enough for a nice wedding mostly due to my savings and my mom’s help. If something happens to curtail your plans, you’ll have a little nest egg. 🙂

@Miss Prerunner: There’s absolutely nothing wrong with saving IMO.  As others have said, you don’t have to tell him what you’re saving for.

Agree with above! Do it.

I would however save 1/2 for “wedding” and 1/2 for “savings” you dont want to wipe out your savings for a wedding especially since you are planning so far ahead.

Even if your SO’s intentions arent marriage at this moment, I would kindly suggest he save as well. Both for a future wedding (dont tell him this) but also because its always good to save. This way combined, you can both afford a wedding and still have money leftover to start a life together.
