Do you feel alone in the planning process? I wish my finance would take more initiative. But he's not a planner.
I'm very much feeling the financial burden right now. We had to give our venue post-dated cheques for the payments when we booked them. And since I'm the only one with cheques, they're ALL coming out of my account. Our next payment gets deposited next week and I'm just looking at my bank account doing the math in my head to see how much money I'll have for the remainder of the month. The payment is $1,200. Basically bye bye to and entire paycheque.
I've bought my dress, booked our bartenders, caterer, florist, and I did the initial deposit to book the venue.
We're also planning a good ol' Manitoba social, but those also require you to spend money to make money, and I've been collecting silent auction prizes as things go on sale. He paid the deposit for the social venue ($400), but so far that's the only thing he's paid for.
I'm going to talk with him about feeling the stress of spending so much on my own.
But how has everybody else felt with the money spending side of things? How did you decide who took what bills etc?
