    Does anyone else count down til pay day so they can buy wedding stuff haha!
    Every pay day I transfer some money into my spare account and try not to touch that as its to go towards wedding bits and then buy little bits with my normal account during the month. Got paid today and paid off our cake toppers :) and already thinking what else needs buying lol. Anyone else do this?

    I do! Although I have over 2 years yet I do have a few wedding bits, I tend to go around on online shops and put things in wishlists for the wedding, I will try and buy them bit by bit. I have a cake topper which I don't think I want to use, it is not really my or my Fiance's style. I found a nice cummerbund last night for my groom but we havent decided if he is doing a waistcoat with a cravat or a cummerbund and shirt with a bow tie. I think I prefer the cravat idea, it would suit him more. I would love him to have a tail suit but he doesn't like them :( he is tall enough (6"3) to pull them off.

    What have you got planned to buy next? How many bits have you got now? :)

    Constantly!! Esp as our money is being pulled between house renovation (important stuff that needs doing before the wedding as we're hosting a BBQ the day after) and wedding stuff. Unfortunately my partner who is "project managing" the house (I'm "project managing the wedding!) keeps putting dabs on the income!

    We're delivering magazines for some extra cash and I've already put my stake on that money so I can get buying. I've also asked h2b to buy me tickets for the Birmingham Wedding Show for my birthday (beginning of March) as I've always wanted to go to one! Slightly late in the planning process but still fun hopefully!)

    We have another suit fitting tomorrow for H2B to make a decision on suits, and we've got our tasting booked for Wednesday afternoon :) I'm constantly thinking of more and more things we need to buy!

    Celtic that's a good idea to buy bits as you go as I find it doesn't feel like it costings as much haha, I have a few things on my next to buy list lol, oh shoes, thank you gifts ( although not sure what yet) favours, men's ties just gotta decide if they are all having same colour or not. My jewellery but haven't found what I want, oh cufflinks, tie pin and watch! So trying to hold off a few weeks so don't spend all my pay in one day haha x

    That's what I did as well. Except I always got too enthusiastic on pay day itself and struggled later on.

    Yey for payday. Mines on Friday and cannot wait, plus my mum is transferring the money to me for my dress that I put the deposit down on and she's paying for. So by next week my dress should be paid for, i'll be able to pay off the bridesmaid dresses from the credit card, and hopefully have some money to look for jewellery or shoes (though my foot is still swollen from the break so I'm thinking I might need to leave shoe buying for nearer the time).

    Please just update this already existing thread you have on money related matters rather than opening up new threads.

    Sorry I assumed they were different threads even though they are both money they are different subjects on it. Maybe I haven't read the rules right as thought we had to open a new thread for a new subject or question rather than use a post that is asking/ talking Bout it in a different format? Please can this be explained As find that most my recent threads are being closed and I feel that i may be seeing it wrong? But assumed a new question was ment to be separate so people read it :/ feeling deflated as feel I'm breaking rules I didn't know was there and feel I might be best if not asking :/
