Ok so I've checked out the Help me pay for my Wedding blog found here and it got me thinking about a couple of things.
1. Our wedding was expensive and we had no money saved for it. Thank God our parents chipped in and helped out. Plus we had a lot of contacts that also donated and helped out. I did the flowers with help from my bridesmaids, sister-in-law and mother-in-law. Since I'm not a big cake person we ordered one from the local grocery store. I wasn't about to drop $1,000 on cake! In all the wedding turned out perfect.
2. We are in the process of saving up for a down payment on a house and I got to thinking should I start a site where people can donate money towards my dream house. But then I thought its too much hassle and extra work that I don't think I have time for. But if I want something to happen I have to put my mind to it. Now I'm on the fence about this. Plus I don't deal with mean people well. I usually retaliate. What do you think?
