How many weddings did you say you were attending this year? Whether its one or six, we need to save as much money as we can. Am I right? The cost of a wedding can be expensive and we can recall from How to Budget when you get the NEXT Wedding Invitation. #WeddingWednesday, how the cost isn’t just in the gift. Travel costs, bachelor parties, and showers/stags are automatic additions to any wedding invitation that comes in the mail. What can put a damper on any budget is the cost to dress for the events and the happy couple’s special day.
Wedding season is in full swing! I’ve been to two already and I have three more to go! Weddings are happy occasions that I welcome on any day of the week. I look forward to seeing the bride’s dress, eating yummy food and slow dancing with Daniel. This year though, because there are so many at the same time, I’ve had to budget everything that goes into what I would need for their wedding day. It really does add up. I’m not the only one that needs to budget, right?
When I got my friend’s invitation to her Bridal Shower, the instructions said “Dress to Impress… don’t forget your hat!” I envisioned a glamorous vision of pearls, red lipstick, and a fabulous black hat that Jennifer Lopez might wear. Notice what’s missing from my vision? What I couldn’t see was my dress. How many invitations have you gotten and you thought to yourself, what am I going to wear?
