Alison and Jason met on a Porter flight from Newark to Toronto, Alison was on her way to visit her dad, and Jason was going to his best friends wedding, (do I need to go on)?
After their meeting in the sky, Alison emailed Jason some tips for his upcoming business trip to Shanghai. It was becoming clear after many long emails, and a third date in Tokyo, Alison and Jason were meant to be together.
Alison and Jason planned a beautiful wedding at the Gardiner Museum here in, Alison’s hometown, Toronto. With many of their friends, and Jason’s family being from out of town, Jason’s best man helped the couple negotiate a personalized discount code with Porter for all their guests, nearly 50 who flew to the wedding.

Today I hit the highway early this morning to head to Hamilton to chat with CHCH Morning Live host, Lesley Stewart, about how to budget for your wedding – the subject nobody likes to talk about. Here are a few points we touched on:
1. Don’t start your marriage off living beyond your means.
2. Make a budget based on:
a. Your current savings
b. A realistic forecast of the money you will save during the engagement period
c. Money given to you by people who want to contribute, i.e. parents
3. Do not base your budget on the monetary gifts you might receive.
4. A budget is not based on what the media says the average wedding costs.
5, Your most important goal should be to finish the day married and debt free!
When researching for this segment I went to the Canadian, money guru, Gail Vaz Oxlade’s website and found this great article to help you get started on planning your wedding budget and your future finances.
