After the Day Was Done, We Owed No One Anything

  • Posted on March 31, 2011 at 10:39 pm

After the day was done, we owed no one anything unless we missed them at the end of the night to pay them.  That my dears, was a great feeling. There was nothing hanging over our heads to pay off for the next year or next 10 – 15 years.  Once one of has gone into the planning mode sit together and make the decision to save more rather than go into debt by getting married.  Think about what is important for your new life to talk about; money or everything else in life.

Make it a point to pay cash or use your debit card to pay for everything pertaining to your wedding event.  The exception is when making online reservations.  For your protection of false advertising, or something that is undelivered or a mishap, or even a dispute you want that reservation to be insured.  Before you get to that happy place about using your credit card, the best thing to do is make a cash payment on the reservation immediately to your credit card company, so again you are NOT using future money.

You still want to experience that sense of freedom from owing anyone anything, especially immediately after your relaxing honeymoon.  So even if you do have to pay some things with credit card you will reimburse your card company with some budgeted wedding cash.
