Hello friends, and welcome to Chapter Three of my wedding series!
Last month, we paid off our honeymoon, booked our florals, lighting, decor & photography, ordered my wedding dress, and went to two wedding shows. What an exciting and eventful month! Here’s what we did in the way of wedding planning in June:
Okay, we did one thing – researching wedding invitations. However, we were shocked to find how expensive they were. With RSVP cards, information cards, and menus included, they added up to over $1000! Good thing we decided to give it time, because we discovered a free wedding website that lets guests easily RSVP online and lets you add useful information, directions, menus, and even your very own love story. Awww. So, we’ll see what happens in July.
Still, ‘nothing’ stands true. In all honesty, June was simply a very long, tough month, for reasons that will hopefully soon be irrelevant.
So instead, I’ll be sharing with you something else: how my fiancé and I are saving up for our wedding!
Money and love. Couples’ finances. Sharing money as a couple. Whatever you want to call it, this is a topic I have wanted to write about for a while, so I figure this is the perfect opportunity. You will hopefully find some inspiration for saving up for your special event or ambitious goal: perhaps a holiday, a laptop, a car, or even a house.
To save up for our wedding, my fiancé and I are:
- tracking our income within our wedding timeframe
- working on realistic, timely savings goals
- growing and investing our wedding funds
