Less than 3 months!

February 22nd, 2016 at 06:13 am

It's been busy over here. DF and I are both sick right now. He's staying home to rest today, but I unfortunately had meetings to be in for. I'm hoping to go home early though after my 1 pm meeting.

Things are moving along on the wedding front. Invites went out Saturday. I have a few to-dos including booking our getting ready hotel room, ordering the air puppets, and ordering travel shirts/groomsmen's ties. I also need our guest book, but I'm holding out for a 20% off coupon from Peachwik (I have a 10% as backup). Other than that, it's just finalizing details and paying off vendors. I've actually been semi-proud at how well we're doing. Considering how overbudget we are, we're still on track to have everything paid off in time for the wedding. Additionally, I've still been working on reducing the credit cards. We've paid no interest on the Marriott card (the one we put all wedding and most daily expenses on), and we're slowly paying down the other two cards that are 0%. Chase Slate has less than $500 (originally $900) and Capital One Venture has about $600 (originally $1100). I've started working on an order of payoffs for after the wedding. I'm hoping by the end of the year, we'll be down to just student loans and DF's car loan. It's lofty because that'll mean about $13k in debt payoff for the remainder of the year. Our wedding savings rate has been about 2k/month, so it is possible.

    Two months and a day to go for me. Smile Just had my second fitting today, and will have another one two weeks from today. (gotta make sure there's no Janet Jackson episode!)

    I'm almost thinking that I won't have a guest book at all ... with so few guests, I'm not sure it really makes sense to have one.

    Good job on saving up for the wedding costs and paying down credit cards!

    It's come up so quick! Looks like you guys will be in a great place by the time it's the wedding, no financial stress and happy times ahead, all you will need to do is enjoy the wedding :-)
