Just wondering if anyone has considered taking out a loan for cosmetic treatments for their wedding. I'd really love to get my teeth done but it would cost a fortune, but taking out a loan coming up to the wedding???

Hey Glittergal, i borrowed to get the invisalign done, personally i wouldnt borrow to get boobs or something like that done. I think getting your teeth sorted is an investment so id say go for it. Maybe get the loan over a long period (so small repayments coming up to wedding) and increase pmts after wedding when you have more money to clear it. You will get cash gifts at wedding anyway so use some of them to clear it.

Hiya, I think it depends if it is really really bad or is it a case that you are consious of it but no one else would notice? It could be a case that it is actually your special charm but you do not realise it cause it has become a hang up. I would love to do several things but h2b and friends tell me that it is only in my head could this be the case with you as well? :lvs

A lot of people travel abroad to Bulgaria/Turkey to get teeth done at a fraction of the cost - I know a guy who did this and saved a fortune and his teeth are fabbo

After the Invisalign post I think I am going to borrow from the credit union to get them done. I just don't have €5000 lying around and with getting the tax back on €5000 it's 1200 so you only end up paying about 3800 in total which ain't too bad at all Wouldn't pay for boobs though but DH might!!!! :o0

So €900 x 16 = € 14,400 He saved €13,200 and still had a holiday out of it and his tootles look great
