GRAND RAPIDS, Mich. (WOTV)- Your special day will never be forgotten, but with the average cost of a wedding now reported as exceeding $28,000, it’s also time to remember there is a better way to create memories without adding up to long term debt when starting your new life together.
It starts with setting realistic expectations. Begin with examining your finances, and where you can cut back on expenses during your engagement timeframe to pay comfortably for your special day. Get creative and be solid on staying to your budget … a decision you won’t regret once your day is passed. Even more importantly, have open talks with your fiancée about the future, your financial goals, and how important it is to be financially healthy – a wedding gift you can give each other that provides a lifetime of benefit!
