Risks Fresh blueberries are a popular summer treat. They have a sweet flavor, and they are succulent and nutritious. Blueberries can be eaten freshly picked or incorporated into a variety of recipes.
From Judy, the reader who emailed me: My fiance and I are lucky to share similar views as you and John — pay off debt fast, save a lot, and spend only on things that bring joy. Should we really pay for several hundred dollars of chair rentals, or just deal with less-than-ideal chair covers?
Should I feel guilty about wanting peonies in my bouquet? Will prettier chairs actually be better than putting that money towards a vacation or retirement?!
I love this question, because it has legs far beyond wedding planning — it will come up over and over again for anyone who follows a budget or has big money goals. For us, currently, it looks like deciding how much we should prioritize making aesthetic upgrades to our living room.
How we decided which parts of our wedding vision were worth it: It sounds like a bit of a circular answer, but our spending priorities were the things that brought our vision most powerfully to life.
In the first place, we had a very clear vision for how we wanted our easy-elegant-classic-garden party-seaside wedding to feel.
From there, we identified the things we thought would add to it most strongly: A view out to the ocean, an airy, elegant tent, a live band playing swing music, and waiter-passed food versus a sit-down dinner: But circling back to our overall vision always helped us align our priorities.
What we chose to forgo for the sake of our future finances: We cut back or saved in areas that would not contribute significantly to our vision or the experience of our wedding. A money mindset shift that helped when we were feeling sorry for ourselves: This is a powerful shift for all budget followers!
One major area where we did splurge without regret was our photography and videography. As someone who has consumed wedding images daily for literally decades, I have extremely high standards and very particular opinions. I wanted our wedding captured in a particular way, and I am so grateful we prioritized it — the photos and videos match perfectly with how I remember our wedding, strengthening my memories even six years on.
Why we decided to spend money on a wedding at all: Our wedding was a magical day, a touchstone we will return to for the rest of our lives.Another great essay. I enjoy your writing so much Mr.
