We have been paying things as we go along, and are also very lucky to have fantastic friends and family who have got us presents of our cake, my dress, the car, the church music, the flowers and the photographer!! They have been amazing.. :o)ll We have about 12'000 euro's left to pay off in the run up, 8-9'000 of which is payable on the day. We will be going home for the wedding with about 3'500 in our pockets. H2B thinks we will get a lot of money from our guests, and wants to pay whatever is left on the day onto our credit card as we have quite a good limit. This makes me panic a little bit sometimes. What do you think? Is anyone else doing anything remotely like this? Hmmm.. :-8

A reckon put it on the card. And if you're really stuck then and can't pay it back on time take out a credit union loan to pay off the credit card. How'd you get a limit that high? I asked to have mine increased to 7000 and after much faffing about they told me 4500 was the most they could give us ;o(

Do you mean you are traveling TO your wedding with 3.5k and a bill of 8-9k to pay? Sorry I have my dumb head on tonight!

If I have it right, and you're going to your wedding with 3.5K when you have 9K of bills to pay, you're taking a massive chance. Can you really count on raising almost 6K from your cash cows, sorry, guests? Plus you'll be like a pair of tinkers rooting through your presents as soon as you have them to pay the bills.

Sincere advi[b:3vdc40fb]c[/b:3vdc40fb]e does actually include opinions you might not like or agree with. I happen to think that relying on guests to pay bills that have to be settled on the day is unseemly. The OP asked for opinions on a public forum. She did not ask for meaningless assurances via cosy pms. Do you think advising her to attend her own wedding with a 5K shortfall is helpful? It's not.
