Bells $100 ????

Do u plan to finance the $9905 ?

The 'bells' are kind of a 'just-in-case' expense. The fiance says her sister has some left-over bells (in lieu of rice) from her own ceremony. I just guesstimated $100 as the expense of extra bells if we need them

Definitely don't plan on financing anything - me and the fiance plan to pay everything in cash. Hopefully, some hard-core saving and part-time gigs will help us achieve this goal.

Lemme come, Reggie. I want to explain business in layman's terms. LOL!!!!

Congrats!

so 9k saved for the WEDDING huh? why not save all of that - go to the courthouse - and just invest EVERYTHING you have into your marriage? *random thought*

Crys -

I would love to do that but, the boss (my fiance) wants to have a big wedding. Obviously the impending no-job-ed-ness [technical term] may drastically effect her dream.
