I know that most people post wedding things on Wednesdays but I wanted to share this today for some reason.
Weddings are expensive.
Our venue includes a lot of things with their packages, but it doesn’t include some of the big ticket things like photography, videography, flowers, cake. That kind of thing.
Our budget that we thought was a lot and enough to cover everything, is basically gone. The most shocking part is how quickly it goes. And it’s sad when a good photographer you like is $2,400 and that is the cheapest you have seen. Seriously people. Granted, that includes things some photographers charge extra for, but good lord.
Jeremy and I have realized that we have to come out of our own pocket to get everything we want. We will be paying for the photographer and videographer ourselves. This really isn’t that big of a deal since we aren’t getting married until 2014 and we can save lots of money before that.
On a happier note, I am officially debt free. This time is the last time I will get bogged down with credit card debt and it has been a struggle. I know that I can never have a CC in my possession and I never will have one. We live within our means and that works great for us so far. No need to live with CC debt. Jeremy just needs to get out and then we will be all good!! YAH!
