Spend, Spend, Spend… I have never spent so much money in my life (excluding school tuition) than I have on this wedding! lol… Now, that being said, let me introduce to you the side of me that I haven’t really discussed often on my blog: Hello, my name is Zaneta and I am a tightwad!
There, I said it… I HATE spending money! It’s not like I had a lot to begin with since I paid straight up cash for school … which I am proud of for not being in debt out of college, but it left me with a sad sad sad bank account lol.
I’ve been reading wedding planning websites and magazines because, let’s face it, I’ve never planned a wedding before lol… surprise! ;) Most of them have said that the AVERAGE american wedding costs about $15,000 - $20,000… wowsa! That’s a car!! OR a down payment for a house!!
To me, that is a lot of money for a wedding! I mean, I know it’s a special day, dont get me wrong! I want my wedding to be gorgeous and a once in a lifetime event… but when it’s all said and done… it’s only 1 day! I’d rather save as much money as possible… still have a gorgeous wedding… but still have money in my bank account so that in the near future me and my future hubby can have a down payment for a house. I’ll share in a different post about some things that I’ve done to save some money … right now I just want to give you guys the overview of my wedding details!
I, Zaneta, am marrying my best friend, Joshuah,
whom I have known for almost 5 years and
have dated for almost 4 (come march 24th)
June 25, 2011
at the church that I have grown up in
with a reception to follow
My colors are Blue and Green (duh)
My 2 sisters are both my Maids of Honor
His brother and my brother are both his Best Men
We have a cake lady, photographer, and a professional pianist booked
I’m still shopping around for a florist, but I know the flowers I want
Those are the basics… If I left anything out, or you’re curious about any of my planning, just leave me a comment, or email me! I love talking about it!! :) I’m so excited to be marrying my best friend, and the love of my life!! I now have less than 5 months to go!! YAY!!
