No, not Marriage, Yes, Money. Talk realistically about finances!
We all dream a certain way...
... and your dream may look nothing like what his or her dream is when it comes to where to spend your finances! Having both our sets of parents gone, we are like many couples who are paying for their own wedding. Setting a realistic budget based on what each of you feels is important, such as: is music a big deal for you both, or is food most important, or creating your own vows?
Whatever your values may be, now is the time to share your vision.
Line item the areas of priorities and estimated expenses in a journal or a notebook and take notes as they pop into your head or you see something on line. Pinterest is a fabulous tool for sharing and finding ideas for décor, food, styles and trends.
We have created a ‘love journal’ that we both write in.
When we hear a song, or think of an idea, or just want to share our feelings of how wonderful it is to be together planning our future, we have a special place to write our hearts and thoughts. A good reminder when the stresses of daily life, let alone planning a wedding, come into play.
I can't wait to share more insights, stay tuned!
