POLL: First NWR Splurge?!

Hiyaaaaa ladies!!  *waves*  I missed you guys like nutsos!!  


So, I happen to think that brides are superwomen with crazy planning and DIY'ing super powers and I think we're all entitled to pat ourselves on the back after all the wedding planning has come and gone!  lol


Hiyaaaaa ladies waves I photo 3425568-1


Okay, so for the marrieds, what was the first thing you treated yourself to after the wedding?  Your first post-wedding splurge for yourself?!  Shoes?  Full day at the spa?  A puppy?!


And for our lovely brides-to-be, any ideas for post-wedding treats for yourself?!

Our first after wedding splurge will be our trip to Chicago in December. We are soooo very excited! I only had one vacation this year, our honeymoon, and we had a couple to go along with us, so it wasn't just "us". After all the planning and spending all that money, feels good to have some "us" time away from work and Michigan! Looking forward to going to the aquarium and museum and eating like a pig! Lol.

Well, after the wedding, we moved into a bigger place (more$rent), bought DH's grandma's car (we are paying that monthly just with no interest), we bought a new tv stand, and coffee table. Next thing on the list...kitchen table! Ahhh, nothing else big for awhile even though now with some new furniture, I desperately want to buy new dressers for our rooms. Mine is white and DH's is brown, both hand me downs. But that's just life! lol

I didn't do anything crazy for myself. I like spending my money for "us things" like he does. :) For us, it was getting our first big flat screen TV! And also a living room set a and dining room set, with all black leather and black glass. That was the first time we bought our own furniture as we'd been living with hand-me-downs from friends for over a decade. We found super sales and scored bigtime. It totally changes the house and makes it very easy to stay in on weekends. :D


What was your first splurge after the wedding, Mica?

Our Honeymoon I suppose. We were saving for that in tandem with the wedding though we are just now going to actually go on the trip. I really want new furniture, we still have our miserable mismatched college stuff...DH did finally get me a new chair for our 1 year anni :) This next year has been declared the YEAR OF THE HOUSE, we have 3 rooms to renovate and once that is done we will get new furniture - that is what I'm saving for now that the wedding is done!

OUR HONEYMOON. What a splurge that was, hahaha. We got married and then drove across the country and moved! Moving, for us, meant buying EVERYTHING once we got here. Since we only brought with us what would fit in our car for the trip, we got all new everything when we got here.


No other splurging for us! Hahaha

Our biggest PWS was a brand new bed. We badly needed it! The only big purchases planned for the future is upgrading our phones, and an iPad. We are going to be planning our HM soon too! For now we've been just enjoying a low key married life and trying to save money!

Honeymoon was definitly a splurge, but it's kind of wedding related. So I would say buying a ipad for the house :). We love it!

Still working up to our first big splurge that isn't from gift cards from the wedding, haha! I did get a STEAL on some amazing dining room chairs at goodwill today though! I am super stoked not to be using folding chairs, just in time for his parents visit next week!


Still working up to photo 3425847-1


I got all four chairs for: get this- 12.99!!!!!!!!! I had to return a couple shirts, so they gave me some store credit. (And yes, I am trying to see what I am doing as far as the table for Thanksgiving. I am a wee bit nervous for my in laws to see our place! lol)

We haven't splurged too much... we got a KILLER deal on this dining room table though:


We haven t splurged photo 3426011-1


DH had a high top that wasn't my style, so this was much appreciated!


We are currently in the market for a new tv. But I would love to splurge on myself rather than just our home haha

For all you ladies who splurged together with the hubbies, I totally get it!  It's funny how it's so much more fun buying things together as a couple than buying everything just for yourself!  That might be a generalization, but there's some truth to it!


Love seeing/reading all of these and seeing bits and pieces of the future you're all building together with your DHs!!  And YES, Rania - food is a good splurge!  LOL


I think our first real post-wedding splurge were those wedding photo panels and canvass that we got from our photog!  My first treat for myself - new tats!!  :)  And I LOVE them.

You have tatoos? Did it hurt? I want to get my first one around my wrist to look like a bracelet with Cale's name and hearts. Maybe I will finally get it when we go to Chicago.

Our first big splurge I have to say was our home.  We haven't taken a HM yet because family was in town after the wedding, so our little home has to be the major splurge.  : )

Our first big splurge was our patio furniture, and then a dining room table. We got married in the summer and knew we would be having lots of barbecues, etc. I think whoever said money can't buy happiness forgot about the bliss of buying new furniture! :-)

Our first splurge was the Nikon D7000 that I had been wanting forever! Also bought an iPhone 5 (first smartphone!) a month or two ago. Other than that, we're looking into a new tv (our's kicked the bucket a few months ago, and my brother just took his tv that we'd been borrowing) and possibly a queen-size bed (we have an old double). Oh, and I really want a Dyson vacuum. lol
