Time Flies

I apologize (again) for the lapse in posting. Things like a wedding being held on the opposite coast seem to take a lot of time to arrange.

We're finding the expenses adding up, as we knew they would. We're trying our best to keep the prices low, and to use the credit cards sparingly. However, it's easier said than done. Darcy is keeping a spreadsheet of all wedding related expenses, and it's staggering how quick it adds up.

I've been able to keep up with the savings programs at ING and VirtualBank, $25 goes each week to each account. I'm also doing $100 month to my Sharebuilder account, and spent an extra $100 to pick up some Google shares as they have dropped after the release of Google video. I feel pretty confident that the stock will perform better in the future.

Some of the expenses for the wedding will come this weekend as we fly to the West coast this weekend to get the marriage license, and to confirm our wedding location and interview the photographer. It will be a whirlwind four days.

I have been married for 35 years. I made my own wedding dress. We had the reception at my mom's house. I got my wedding ring from a local lapidary. It's nice to have a fancy wedding. However, that's not what makes a successful marriage. Stay focused on the marriage and spend as little as possible on the wedding. Best of wishes to you both!
