Posting from my iPhone so please excuse any typos or brevity but..... Taking on $10K+ more debt for a wedding, with a 591 score, and expecting erring gifts to offset eloverspending would be foolish. If that's her idea of handling finances you two should really have a long talk right now. After a wedding people start talking about houses. Do what you can afford and avoid starting out a new marriage with excess debt.
We aren't getting married any time soon.. we were just talking about it and how much expenses would come up too...I wouldn't get into a marriage knowing my credit isn't good, this is one of the MANY reasons why I am working on fixing it..I just honestly feel like $10k for a wedding is a waste.
