Is Wearing A Wedding Ring Important to You Poll - Marriage

Is wearing a wedding ring important to you?

It's been very important to me. I've had several rings so it's not the ring but what it does for me. I love the weight and the feel of my ring and when I look at it I love the memories of our life together. And I'm very happy to say that my husband finally purchased a wedding ring in 2007. He used to say that he would lose it but after this girl losing a couple of rings I think he figured it out. It's not the expense it the round piece of jewelry on your finger.

When my husband and I renewed our weddings vows last October we knew that we didn't want more then 50 guests. We wanted to have a nice dinner at Landry's Seafood House, a ceremony and reception at Victoria's Chapel and a beautiful gown. And we wanted to stay within budget!

These difficult economics times many people are questioning the large and expensive ceremony. Click here to read this article for other reasons you and spouse/groom will love a smaller event!

Blog Recommendation: Cents to Get Debt-Free

I loved her post "Finding Freedom: Managing Your Expenses".

Marcus just completed a school project were he had to make a monthly budget, based on $30,000 a year, 22 year old male. He said that he learn alot about needless spending. Then came the tough question, "Mom and Dad, do you have a budget?" We responded "No but now that we're have new income lets get on one."

Cents to Get Debt-Free has some fantastic information. It still leaves room to make tithings and charitable donations.

We'll have to incorporate her tips with our plan.

Please stop by her blog to read more ways you can save.
