Did you recently get engaged? If your answer is yes, congratulations! What an exciting time for you and your partner. Some immediate things come to mind when we think about what happens next.

💍 Pick a venue
💍 Schedule engagement photos
Wait! The budget. Oh yes, that pesky little thing that is important when planning your big day. This is obviously something you want to consider before you get too far into making plans.
You know what else is important, talking about what you, as a married couple, will do with your money? Do you have the same goals? Will you have a joint checking account or keep things separate? What does saving together look like? One savings account or multiple savings accounts to budget for things you want. Honeymoon? Down payment for a house? Starting a business?
Managing money is a personal decision but it’s good to both be on the same page. Congratulations on your nuptials and cheers to a life well-budgeted!
