This wedding planning is crazy. The prices for the venue alone is over 10G's. I want the best wedding I could have and our money could afford. So I am picking up a 2nd job. Anyone else having to do this.

    I thankfully did not have to pick up a second job. However, I do know of a few brides who had size hustles. I am grateful that our venue was less 10k. Is your fiancé also picking up a second job?

    We didn’t do this, however we planned our wedding for over two years to make it more affordable.

    Yeah it's a good thing we are getting married in 2025. I'm just nervous, worried. Head count is pretty big.

    It’s totally doable. Take your time and make affordable payments. Much less stress on you both.

    I didn’t take a second job, but I probably should have! 😆 We just keep adding and upgrading things, and it’s really added up!

    I have a second job. It can be a lot, but I'm actually less stressed now despite more hours.

    Hi!


    I actually worked a second job for about 3 months it was a temp job. It was stressful but worth it as the entire salary went into a an account for the wedding and will pay for our venue. I’m happy we don’t have to stress about paying for the venue since that is mostly us footing the bill.

    for the venue. And all of that money will be put into the wedding account.
