Depends on the friend group but I've received cute necklaces from Mejuri, a REI kayaking lesson, and a gift certificate for a mani/pedi at my fav salon

Servus zusammen,

T1/T2 steigt man ja nach dem Master mit ca 80 ein, bin in ner T2 und bin inkl. Bonus bei ca 76k Entry (ca 83k nach 8 Monaten).

Das klingt für mich ja eigentlich ganz gut, wenn man hier allerdings auf Fishbowl unterwegs ist, liest man von den Amis schon ganz andere Summen wie 150k TC; Wie lässt sich das denn vergleichen? Deren Savings-Rate muss doch extrem hoch sein?

Davon abgesehen, wie strukturiert ihr eure Finanzen? Kann von den 3k netto ca 1/2 zur Seite legen..

I have a grandparent who is a toxic narcissist. He is my only living grandparent. I will be inviting all aunts and uncles to our wedding. However, after watching my grandparent make my sister's wedding completely about him and try to get involved, although my sister did not want that, I do not want to invite him. Any advice?


My future SIL will be one of my bridesmaids but I do not want to invite her to the bach because I’d much rather just have my friends there and not have to hold back on anything. I do plan on doing a small thing with my sisters (none of them are invited to the bach either and don’t care) and will invite her to that. How do I break this to her? I don’t want her to feel left out but I just rather not mix friends and family in a bach environment.


How much are you spending on your wedding, compared to income? I’m thinking of spending ~50% of my yearly income (after taxes). I have it saved, and it’s about 30% of my lifetime savings, but it will take a while to earn it back. For context I am not a homeowner so could use the funds more efficiently. Any guidance is helpful!


Diamond prices jumped ~4% in January and February, probably due in part to Russia related craziness. But, I managed to snag this at a not too crazy price :))

Planning started for next month--wish me (advanced) luck!

Comment where you are cutting back to save money. Here are ours:
- Not doing a presidential suite, instead we’re getting a normal suite and using a conference room for hair/makeup/meals
- Centerpieces. We are doing a few bigger centerpieces, then small bud vases at the rest of the tables.
- Transportation for guests. Our wedding is in a major city and ubers are easily accessible.
- Flowers. No flowers for men, only the groom is getting a boutonnière. No flowers for parents/grandparents.


What you wish you knew about wedding photography prior to the big day? Any insight would be helpful!


My fiancé got me a $50K Cartier ring and even though he could technically afford it (he made over $1M last year), I feel a little bad. I might propose returning it and get something comparable from eg the clear cut for <50% the price and put that money into the wedding (which will surely be at least 80K). Any thoughts? Will I regret this?


Is it weird to tip a vendor with a gift card or should I do straight cash?


I just got engaged and I’m totally lost budget wise. I’ve reached out to a handful of venues who all informed me they have an approx 35k minimum. A lot of these places are all inclusive taking care of food etc. I’m unsure m what 35k minimum would mean for a total wedding budget. I’d LOVE some insight. What were some general costs and what did your wedding end up costing at the end of the day?


Hi everyone - We are thinking of changing our wedding photographer after unsatisfactory engagement photos and unsatisfactory communication (unresponsive after multiple attempts). We paid a $450 retainer which we know will be not refundable. However, we are not sure about other liability as we read our contract and found these 2 clauses (in comments). Please advise! Definitely not happy with her and would like to switch to another one but also want to make sure we make the right move. Thanks!


For those who have already had their weddings, what advice do you have? Anything you could change?


Anyone here had a wedding in another country? How was the guest turnout? How many months in advance did you send the invitation? I’m planning to send everyone a “save the date” card within one yr and the formal invitation later. I just want to get confirmation from people well in advance, im scared to invest all this money in a wedding abroad and people not going 😭


Anyone else realize thay they are a generous gift giver throughout the wedding planning process? I have never given less than $150. Also, the amount of $$ given to us has no tie to how close we are to the gift giver or the gift giver’s financial status. We have close wealthy friends giving $100 and not-as-close working class friends giving $300. Meanwhile, no siblings giving anything. Has this happened to others?


Any inspo for ladies with short hair (chin length) lob? Not sure if i want an updo, but I do want a veil!


Bridal shoes - where did everyone get theirs? I don’t want anything fancy, but that seems to be the norm. I struggle justifying $300+ for a lace shoe I’ll wear once and no one will see.


Just committed to a place woooooooo. That is all, have a great day
