Unlike many of our peers (nobody we know personally, that is…) we’ve elected to pay for our wedding the old fashioned way: by saving for it! After we got engaged, we set a date for the ceremony which gave us plenty of time to save enough money to pay for the event.
Because we added some discipline to the process, we actually met our savings goals early and paid for the honeymoon to boot! We are happy to have been able to cope with cost overruns and lift the financial burden a bit from our families.
