So you’re newly engaged, you’ve told everyone you know, you’ve posted pictures of your gorgeous ring all over social media and you have never been happier in your life! So…now what?
First things first… sit down with your amazing fiancé and talk about a budget. This may be a difficult first step but it’s imperative that your expectations for the big day and essentially the rest of your life are matched.
Each of you need to know how much you can contribute to a wedding fund each month. You’ll want and need to know if any family will be contributing as well, which may be a later conversation. If you are planning a $10,000 wedding but can only save $500/month, then you need to expect to get married in 1.5-2 years. This isn’t unreasonable, and you will be happier knowing you began your marriage with a paid for wedding and honeymoon rather than a mountain of debt.
Follow the steps below and you’ll be on your way to planning your wedding and the rest of your life!
