No. Never. Weddings are planned events and as the name implies, its an emergency fund and should never be used for a party or celebration. With a little research, there are always budget friendly options if finances are limited.

You shouldn't. Really.

After the wedding for sure may mga regrets na sana hindi nalang ganun kamahal kasi may cheaper options naman, etc. Pero minsan kasi talaga mapapa isip ka, na ang pera pwede kitain ulit, yung wedding, one time bigtime event lang, Saka iba kasi yung feeling pag na book mo yung gustong gusto mong suppliers, haha, been there  ;D

So nasa preference pa din ng couple. So basically, I would say do it, but don't say I didn't warn you.  ;D

No. Not ever. Save enough money for your wedding expenses and stick to your budget. Your emergency fund should only be used for real "emergencies".

Exactly.

Pwede naman mag materialize pa din yung dream wedding mo sa ibang paraan. Wag ipilit kung hindi naman kaya at mahihirapan kayo ni h2b. May mga kilala ako na kailangan ganito ganyan, para bang ang pamantayan na lang din kasi makipagsabayan sa social media. But then againat the end of the day, hindi naman lahat ng kinakasal ng bongga, masaya after. Wag pahirapan ang sarili, ang mahalaga naman kayo ikakasal hindi yung kung ano masasabi ng mga bisita o makakakita sa facebook.

OT pero naalala ko yung interview ni aga mulach sa magandang buhay before. Nung nag propose daw siya kay charlene tinanong lang niya. When asked kung paano niya ginawa, sabi niya, tinanong ko lang. di naman uso nun yung mga paluhod luhod tapos may picture. What he's trying to say here is that, di natin kailangan makiuso. In a way we could, pero let's be practical.

No way! Emergency funds is for emergency. Wedding you can adjust depending on your budget. Besides napagiipunan at napaplano kung gusto mo talaga ng bongga. Kung hindi kaya wag ipilit kaya nagkaka utang ang iba sa pagpapakasal or gusto makabawi sa gift ng sponsor over sa kaya lang ng couple.

Definitely not because wedding expenses are a form of luxury. If the couple wanted to achieve a certain kind of wedding, then saving up for it is the best way.
