"we can't afford it until after the wedding"
4 months tomorrow for me I cant wait but its now been over a year of hard saving and spending money on wedding things that I am starting to get fed up with being poor and all of the final payment bills are going to start flooding in soon! anyone else out there feeling this stress? Our line of the moment is "we can't afford it until after the wedding" this includes a new car we pray everyday our rust bucket holds out just 5 months longer!), new bathroom, being able to go on holiday, out for dinner, move my career forward as I am going self employed then little things like going out for dinner, accepting weekend invites away. Dont get me wrong I know all the stress and saving will be worth it on the day but for the newly engaged out there my advise would be really think about what you want and keep a lid on your budget - we are way over and my "I dont care becuase its my wedding" attitude has faded and days like today I wish we hadnt been so extravagant! No doubt next week at our florist sample day I will forget this and fall in love with the arrangements but at the moment 14 tall orchid flower centre pieces with really weren't necessary!!
