Money Matters

I hate to say it cause it sucks the whole romantic aspect of getting married, but let’s all be honest here: money IS an important aspect when planning for a wedding.

I have always been proud of the fact that the husband and I paid for our own wedding. That’s basically why it took us more than a year to plan. We had to scrimp and save every cent we made just to come up with the money to pay for the wedding. I remember I had all sorts of worksheets and lists telling me how much we saved, etc and I must admit admit I obsessed over them for months.

My biggest fear (aside from tripping down the aisle) was not having enough money to pay for the wedding. I didnt want to wake up two weeks before the big day and realize that oh my gosh, we’re short on cash. Yikes! That was like one of my worst nightmares ever!

I probably freaked out about once a month, then the husband would patiently assure me that of course we’ll have enough, yada yada yada. Still I could not be consoled. I’d go on and on about saving and money and worksheets and though I’m ashamed to admit it, but I actually would piss myself off everytime I’m at my wits end worrying about the funds. Only when he would remind me that if we really find ourselves in a bind, there’s always sites like that bails people out of their cash emergencies, that I would actually begin to calm down.

Thankfully, we survived my crazy worries and nope I didnt drive the husband crazy. haha. But still I am grateful that there are companies like out there. Just the idea that they are there to help us if in case we’d find ourselves in a rut, calmed my nerves. Well most of the time anyway. LOL. :D
