It’s all love and happiness until it comes to money. People who can relate, will understand my million dollar question, “How can we afford a wedding being a millennial?”
Now, it’s not offensive to state that I am a millennial, but there’s a stigma against us. Lazy, no ambition, want to travel the world being broke, young adults. Oh, and don’t forget the student loans! We cannot be punished for a vision we are manipulated to achieve. Period.
The irony of it all is once we get to the point of not sinking, this magical moment of legally binding yourself to someone voluntarily, puts you in debt for one night of happiness.
Let’s state the obvious, parents of your betrothed will attempt to help or not at all. You need to have a back-up plan, which is a quick way to make money (i.e. stripping). Don’t strip or start a GoFundMe, all that will do is cause extreme embarrassment or state public desperation.
The secret to saving for your dream wedding is simple. DON’T DO A DAM THING. Literally. This is a perfect way to discipline yourself in saving for a house or an accidental slip up in the sheets.
Here’s how I hierarchize my money each month. It’s fun, creative, and keeps me on top. Literally…eyebrows eyebrows. I am terrible at budgeting, so I found this method to be helpful.
So, since we are just some broke ass millenials aspiring for a glamourous wedding, where do we start? The guest list will tell all. If you have over 200 guests, do your research on open bar packages for 4 hours at your reception. That’ll get you started.
In the words of Carrie Bradshaw: “You play poker right, well the dress up the ante.” — Sex in the City.
Let’s not get it twisted, being engaged and planning a wedding are milestones lucky ones get to bare. Enjoy planning your wedding because you only get to do this once, hopefully once.
Stay tuned for my next story: Surprise! WTF
