I get it. I finally understand how wedding budgets spiral out of control. It's the spending threshold. After you spend $180 on a pair of jeans (even if it was a special treat just once kind-of-deal in your mind) $90 jeans just seem like a bargain. You've broken into another spending category and there is no turning back.
I mean whats another $400 when you've already spent $10k? I have added a ton of 'extras' because at the time they seemed like such a small amount of money for the added benefit.
Today's Converstaion: Oh yes, let's upgrade those buffet plates to china since its more white. An off-white would ruin my table scheme. (Where is that little wedding angel that is supposed to be sitting on my shoulder saying 'NO ONE WILL NOTICE'?) It's such a tiny fraction of the overall costs there is no way all those extras could add up to be a lot in the end right? :)
Oh yeah, and after I upgraded I remembered our plates wont even be set on the tables since we are having a buffet. $h*%! Maybe I'll call back tomorrow, and change our rental order yet again, I'm pretty sure they already think I'm crazy.
I don't have a solution, it's too late for me anyways, but I know the problem - and thats half the battle right?
Have you kept your wedding costs in check?
