Don't Get In Over Your Head!
Please be careful and thoughtful if you are considering a loan to finance your wedding. At this time in your life, sentiment and emotion run high. Nothing else seems more important. It is so easy to get caught up in the "spare-no-expense, once-in-a-lifetime" mentality. Getting a wedding loan may seem like a good idea but this kind of thinking can lead to a "pay-for-a-lifetime" headache!
While it is true that weddings are a "multi-million dollar business", it is not necessary for you to lose your shirt contributing to the cause. It is said that the average wedding budget ranges from $17,000 to $35,000 depending on your location. Wow! Do you really want to start married life out in debt with nothing more to show for it than a dress you will never wear again and a steep monthly loan payment?
Financial debt is one of the major causes of failed relationships. Couples become understandably stressed and fight more due to the financial burdens they acquire. Unfortunately, this often leads to their separation and eventual divorce.
Don't fall into this trap. If you can afford a fancy affair without getting a wedding loan, by all means, go for it. If however, your financial resources are limited, create a firm wedding budget to guide you and stick to it! There are any number of ways to cut your wedding expenses. Save your money for more important things like your first home or your first child!
The beauty and sentiment of your wedding day is not proportionate to how much you spend on it! The day is about love, family and close friends, not how much it cost!
Saying "I Don't" to Wedding Debt, by Monica Steinisch is one of the best articles on the subject of wedding loans.
Take the time to read it. It may save you some heartache and cause you to "rethink" your wedding budget.
