I remember planning my own wedding even though it was many years ago. One thing I remember about making wedding arrangements was how fun and exciting it was. I really liked that my husband and I made the choices for colors, a theme, flowers, and everything else together.
Although we paid for most of the wedding ourselves, his parents and my mom did help out a little. Despite that, our budgets were still tight so our wedding was pretty frugal.
We were both still in college so we talked a lot about finances before getting married. Unfortunately these days not every couple has a financial discussion, like we did, before tying the knot. However, there are good reasons you should talk about finances before talking about forever.
