You've heard the phrase "Money is the root of all evil," but money can't divide this loving couple when it comes to making their dream day a reality.
Here's Adam & Jared's top 3 tips for budgeting for the biggest day of your life!
1) Pay yourself first- The phrase "pay yourself first" means people will routinely and automatically put money into savings before spending it on anything else. Adam & Jared use this technique to help save for their wedding! They say it's a good idea because it's money you won't miss and won't spend on non-essential things.
2) Create multiple streams of income- Finding multiple sources of income can be a solution to finding financial stability. Adam & Jared work as instructors at Joy Ride, a cycling studio in Ridgefield CT. They have the option of picking up additional shifts for classes on top of their normal hours, but that's not all they do! Jared performs live music on Friday nights and does any landscaping gigs he can fit into his schedule, while Adam picks up shifts at Nature's Temptations, an Organic & Whole Foods Market in Ridgefield, CT. They have multiple sources of income and suggest you do too!
3) Set your priorities- Priority setting is a lot like goal setting. If you set priorities, you're more likely to achieve a goal! Adam & Jared said the one thing they aren't going to spare any expensive on is the photographer. Figure out your priorities and stick to them to make your day the best day of your life!
