In search of a comprehensive guide for your wedding finances and (hey-o) personal saving/budgeting strategies in general? Let me introduce you to your new Professor of Finance, WalletJoy! I’ll be the first to admit that getting a grip on all the moneys and implications surrounding wedding planning, life as newlyweds and the purchase of our first home was a marathon, not a sprint. Where are all my left-brainers at?! So when I discovered this up + coming digital resource that could help me understand + speak the language, as well as come up with solid strategies of my own, I was hooked.
WalletJoy is essentially the Wikipedia of personal finances… if Wikipedia were giving sound advice from professionals and experts 100% of the time. Their online guide is dedicated to helping couples navigate the oft confusing world of personal finances through real-time advice (hello, coronavirus impact on 2020 weddings), thought-provoking topics (is wedding insurance actually worth it?) and exclusive interviews with top sources in the wedding sphere. It’s the real deal. And we feel like we just struck gold!
So what are some of the key topics WalletJoy is tackling? For starters…
- What to expect for the cost of alcohol at weddings
- Pros + cons of choosing to elope
- Ring insurance 101
- Unexpected wedding guests and how to handle the situation
- Combining finances with your new spouse
- Paying for your honeymoon with credit card rewards
The list goes on! There is jam-packed content across WalletJoy’s intuitive (and digestible) site. What I mean by that is that it’s uber easy to navigate AND the information is presented in valuable, bite-sized chunks that truly anyone can understand. There’s no confusing wording or extra fluff that inhibits you from getting the message and knowing how you can take real action in your own life. And that’s a huge refresher in today’s age of free-flowing information!
For instance, their open conversation about how the coronavirus is impacting 2020 weddings addresses concerns about insurance policies and shares tips on what to look for in your own, as well as suggestions for alternative directions in the face of closures for both local and destination wedding venues. We’ve seen many couples choose to have a courthouse wedding for the time being and save their big celebration with all their guests for a later date in the midst of all this, and this is a specific concept WalletJoy has shared a 101 guide on as well!
In times of uncertainty especially, gaining immediate access to free resource like WalletJoy an actually keep you sane. Let’s be real. Having validated direction and a clear roadmap forward results in the peace of mind we all need.
But even long after your wedding day, (cause never forget, you will have a glorious wedding day that exceeds your wildest dreams… no pandemic is gonna step in the way of that!) you’re going to have questions about shared finances, owning a home, planning for retirement, maybe starting your own business or growing your family too. Each of these life events comes with its own set of challenges, and that’s why we adore having a one-stop resource to navigate us through it all.
