#mysunnyday ... a bright new way to save for a wedding (#Sponsored)

We’re attending 2 weddings in October locally. We’re attending a wedding next year in California. Guess what? Planning a wedding is expensive for the families involved BUT attending a wedding gets pricey too. Throw in multiple events with travel, hotel stays, AND needing to cover the couple’s ‘plate cost’ (minimum) and…you can be looking at big bucks.

You probably have a 401k for retirement. Possibly a 529 account if you’ve got kids that hope to head to college one day. But what about an account that would allow you to save either for your own wedding day or to help you prepare for the costs associated with going to a wedding (or 2, or 3…)?

Look no further. SunTrust has developed just the thing. ‘Your Sunny Day’ is, first and foremost, a savings plan for those planning a wedding or planning to attend a wedding. A nifty calculator takes what you’ve saved so far, combines it with what you will need to spend (and the date of the event), and, bam, it tells you what you need to start saving right now.

Combine the Your Sunny Day advice with an associated SunTrust savings account and you’ve got what we would call the Christmas Club for wedding goers! (Plus there are excellent resources like ‘WHY YOU NEED TO TALK ABOUT MONEY BEFORE THE WEDDING’ and ‘SPENDING INDEPENDENTLY AS A COUPLE’ articles that are must reads. Trust us…you think we’re working here without a spouse’s support?)

Planning a wedding? Cake runs $300+, a DJ can go for $6K+, $130 per plate times 200? You do the math. Hotel for out of town guests, invitations, limos, the honeymoon, uggh even thinking about getting a full band?!

Yes, it’s tough. And if you’re going to one – you’re expected to be part of the village helping the couple overcome those initial costs up there. (That’s why we really like this savings plan / Christmas Club analogy for wedding goers…) Think about it … 2 weddings in October, cash needed to be gifted to the new legal duos and…the holidays are right around the corner. What are you going to do? Take a cash advance?

No, start saving right now…
