hah I haven’t really thought of it like that. I get paid 1/month so I guess I have 9 or 10 to go. We’re taking a set amount out of every paycheck though to save and most of the big payments come at the end, so I’m hoping that by the time we have to make them our wedding account will be big enough to do it. Fingers crossed for careful planning!

Wow, I was just doing the same thing. I have 4 paychecks until my wedding and I still have to finish paying the photographer and the tent rental. It is making me nauseous thinking about it! I’m thinking about picking up a part time job for extra money!

amandagrace – I literally woke up sick to my stomach this morning because I’m running out of weeks and paychecks =/ thank god my Fiance told me he’d pay for the alcohol because its just not in the budget! I’m just hoping my mom pulls through and is able to at least split the remaining cost of everything with me!

I am so glad  to see that I am not alone in this.  I have 4 paychecks before my wedding and so much to do. Fiance just does not understand why I am stressing so much.

We did it the other way around…we figured out how many paychecks we had left to the wedding when we first got engaged & then how much expenses were at the time for the previous month & month at the time & put ourselves on a strict budget.  Then, as we planned, we asked vendors about credit card payments.  Now that the final payments are due, Fiance & I have enough in both our accounts to cover the credit card, thanks to meticulously careful tracking of spending (thanks, Excel sheets!).  But this had to happen right when we started planning or I’d be biting my nails to feed me for dinner tonight!

Yep! We were counting paychecks – it helped us stay on budget. Sometimes it seemed impossible, but we scraped by somehow lol
