I’ve alluded to our cheap wedding and honeymoon a couple of times, but I had never gotten around to writing out the details of what it took to make it happen. When I got asked to write a guest post for Millennial Money Man though, I realized it was the perfect opportunity to finally recap that experience.
It’s been eight and a half years since we were married, and almost nine since we got engaged (we were only engaged for four months before the wedding). Looking back, I have only fond memories of our wedding, and I’m glad we didn’t spend any more than we did on that special day. Rather than a big, fancy, expensive wedding, we saved our money and eventually used that cash for a down payment on our home instead of paying off an expensive one day celebration. After all, we are no less married for having a less extravagant wedding celebration.
We had a wonderful wedding with our family and friends and took off for a five day honeymoon, keeping our total cost to under $3,500. To hear all about the wedding details and expenses, head on over to Millennial Money Man and read my guest post there.
Since the guest post doesn’t include pictures of the wedding, I thought I’d include a few here:
