I can’t understand why people get so stressed over planning a wedding.
Why would you want to spend thousands and thousands on a wedding?
My two budget tips for planning your own wedding?
- Don’t bother having anybody come. It’ll cut down on how much money you ave to spend on food, entertainment, etc.
- Don’t hire a wedding planner. Do you really want a big wedding? Do you really want to invite your entire family and spend hundreds on clothes and food and booze?
Seriously, weddings are a waste of money. There’s no reason to spend thousands and thousands on giant party that acts as nothing more than a status symbol.
Spend that money on something else. Save up for a down payment on a house for you and your new spouse. Spend that money on a well-deserved vacation/honeymoon.
Don’t buy into the idea that you need to do this or that for your relationship to be seen as a ‘real’ relationship.
