Have some thoughts on weddings and money This weekend, i proudly served as the matron Cheap Homecoming Dresses Australia of honor in my college roommate wedding.It was both an honor and a joy to take part in her beautiful wedding ceremony. Anyone who has ever been a bridesmaid or a groomsman in a wedding well tell you that it not cheap.But this is one of those rare cases where i didn focus much on the money.Yes, i really did just say that.Of course, i wasn Australia just spending money for the sake of spending it, and i budgeted carefully for the trip long before we took it.But this is why i save:So that i can spend on the things that matter. Living a frugal life gives you the opportunity to spend when it counts the most.All without blowing your budget or going into debt.Financial guru suze orman is fond of saying"People first, then money, then things,"And she is right. For those of you in your late teens or 20s, i highly recommend saving up some cash for the purpose of going to weddings(Not to Cheap Party Dresses mention your own wedding).Weddings seem to come in waves as your friends get engaged, and there are a lot of expenses that go with them.This was the third wedding my husband and i attended this year, and we still have one more to go.All four are out of town. The whole experience reminded me vividly of my own wedding almost three years ago now.Back then, some of you will Australia recall, i wrote a series of stories about my wedding planning and moneysaving efforts.
