Getting married is the most magical, most manic time you may ever experience…
In the age of celebrity weddings, there’s more pressure than ever before to have a fairytale day with all the bells and whistles that can possibly be attached.
Designer dresses, flashy venues, professional photographers, a ring with a diamond the size of a small planet, and more booze than you can shake a stick at means most weddings come with a fairly hefty price tag these days!
Most couples, therefore, have to wait a little while in order to save up and eventually “put a ring on it”.
But some lovers can get a little impatient… Not that I blame them! You’ve found the person you want to spend the rest of your life with! You don’t want to wait around to get the deposit paid on the horse and carriage, right?!
If that’s the case, good for you! Let love reign supreme! Get married on a budget, tie the knot, begin life as Mr and Mrs and have your big, blow-out party when you’ve got more cash to splash at a later date!
Bride, Susan, was all about getting down that aisle ASAP. Sure, she hadn’t saved a HUGE amount but she was pretty confident she’d still be getting the wedding of her dreams. Not because she was going to marry the love of her life on a budget, but because she was kind of hoping her guests would fork out to pay for her wedding…
Susan planned a wedding with a not unsubstantial budget of $60,000. The only (small) problem was that she and her hubby had only saved $15,000. A very, very slight problem that she expected her guests to solve.
An anonymous cousin of Susan’s shared the Facebook post Susan penned days before the wedding…

“A little push”?! “A little help”?! Does this woman know the definition of “little”?! Because it ain’t what she’s describing here!
