Debt is not the way to start off a relationship, financial coach Charlotte Stallings told My Fox Houston. "Do not go into debt trying to have a fabulous wedding," she said. To stay financially sound in the wedding planning process, Stallings suggests that everyone contributing to the wedding "sit down and have a face-to-face first." Then, she added, prioritize. "Force yourself to decide what's critical," Stallings said. And to stay on track, keep adjusting the budget as you shop around.
