More Money Saving Tips to Help Your Child Pay for Their Wedding

Start with a Budget

Before you really do any hardcore planning, start with a budget. This will help you figure out what kind of money you’re looking at spending. And for most of us, money really is an issue; so saving it is very important. A budget will help you set spending limits so you’re not blowing through your savings. You can also set an amount that you’re willing to put toward the wedding, and let your child know that anything more will have to come from another source.

Share the Costs

It’s 2017. We no longer live in a world where the bride’s parents are responsible for paying for everything, minus the rehearsal dinner. Furthermore, weddings around Raleigh NC can run upwards of $45,000. That means everyone involved should bear some of the burden of the wedding costs.

Where to Find Extra Funds

Finding the extra money to pay for wedding costs is another issue. If you have some extra cash, we suggest using as much of it as you can afford. This will save you from having to use credit cards, paying interest, and more. If you’re like most folks, you’re probably going to need some help. So what do you do?

Avoid getting a home equity loan. While it might sound like a good option at first, you could be risking your home if something goes wrong. Also try to avoid refinancing, especially if you’re looking to sell your home in the future. You’ll lose all your profit. However, if you’re never going to sell then you might want to consider this. Sometimes a credit card is the best option. But again, you’ll have to weigh your own situation.
