for those who are saving, are u just saving till a month near to wedding date, or u had a total in mind and just saving till u reach it??
Saving until a month before the wedding date, but it is all planned and we know how much we need by that date.
Saving as we go. I'm really organised so I have it all planned. I have set a budget that is higher the. What we actually need so nothing should go wrong
I'm being bad and just making sure I don't spend a fortune but so far it is all going on credit card (well, I got a 0% deal).
We’ve paid some things off as and when we’ve saved enough (like venue) and buying and putting deposits on things as we’ve saved, but now we have totals that we need to save so know exactly how much we need and are saving as much as we can each month to reach the amount we need.
We plan to continue saving long after the wedding for a mortgage deposit so we are just carrying on...we might have a couple of months break from saving right after the wedding but we will carry on saving up until the payday right before
thanks for replies, i am buying small things every other week, but be needing to save for big items like dress, venue, hair, make-up, cake, suit, flowers for me, flowers for venue.
We have a budget we need to reach, but will continue saving after we hit it for any unexpected costs, or if we decide to have something extra. :) And if we don't spend it all, then we'll have a small start for saving for a house. X
We are saving as we go and paying off bits when we have the money. Our wedding is in November and we will have paid everything off by the end of October
I'd make sure you have enough money to cover most things before you book (ceremony, reception, suits, dresses, rings etc) then the extras such as photobooths, honeymoon save for after.
Not wanting to sound negative but I booked mine then work made a lot of redundancies I was lucky to keep my job but you never know what is around the corner. Xx
Saving monthly, know what we need to save and the last payment is due 3 weeks before x
We have an idea of what we need to save each month in order to pay for everything but as we are going straight into saving for a house deposit after there is no end to our saving lol xx
We are saving until the month before the wedding. We are buying little bits along the way too since we know what we want and it's far easier to find deals!x
We haven't even set the date yet but have started saving quite a bit, any new pound coins we recieved are going into a giant bottle plus we both have savings anyway.
We have the money to cover all our deposits..ceromony, venues, meal, etc.i have bought all the dresses( bride, bridesmaids x4 and maid of honour) all on a budget toteling £230 I am saveing up until the month before to pay off the rest.our wedding gifts we are asking for money for towards the honeymoon.
Using our surplus money each month to pay it off. I'd rather it was paid than sitting in our bank, far to tempting!! Should be all paid with a few months to spare 😊
Check with suppliers aswell, im paying all mine off in instalments because I don't trust myself with savings. Rather have the money paid to them and then I can't spend it on shoes 😂
We didn't really do saving per say. We paid off to each company a little at a time (sp £50 a month for my dress...£50 per month for our decorations... etc. so we didnt have a lot to pay out at the end... We only had our disco to pay on the night... x
We decided on everything we wanted and it’s cost then divided the cost by months until we wanted to marry and that amount became our monthly saving goal
We're saving a set amount per week, figured out what funds we'll have & then working to that budget
