You have just said "yes" to your significant other and are in the midst of planning for the big day! Sometime between the color palette picking and gown shopping, you should have a conversation with your one and only about money. Communicating each of your goals will help to set attainable mini goals, starting with how much you should spend on your wedding and how much is allocated towards that luxurious Bora Bora honeymoon. There is also the conversation to have about the legality of money and drawing up the correct documents. Will you be sharing a retirement plan and updating your insurance policies? Perhaps you know a financial adviser or use a money managing app that be a mediator or as a basis for planning ahead.
A suggested list of things to talk about include:
Purchasing a Car or Home
Paying off any Debts
The dreaded budget conversation is not one that anyone looks forward too, but is one to be had for financial success in your new life together.
Once you have had the conversation, you can get back into the fun wedding planning and stop by The Bustle to find your dream gown :)
