My guy likes the concept of a smaller more intimate wedding with his immediate family and mine only but as for me, like a typical lady I think, I want a larger wedding. His idea is hey lets do a small intimate wedding thats less expensive so we can do a nice long honeymoon vacation and mines lets do a huge wedding and a small honeymoon thing. He's a great guy just very practical and wants to have some savings after marriage is said and done rather than us going broke to have the wedding of "my dreams". Would love some input on this!Answer Question

Your fiance is absolutely right! I've been married 22 years to a practical man like that. As a result, we now live in a nice home (that is almost paid for) but it was tough getting together the down payment for our first home and the mortgage payments were a lot tougher in the early years. My husband is 12 years away from retirement, we have investments, retirement plans and savings for our children's education (my oldest will be going to university in Sept). We are looking good for retirement, thanks to him and we didn't start off our marriage paying for the wedding.
