Do you need some time to make payments, even while your service providers are sending you their bill due date reminders? Take advantage of credit card sign-up bonuses. If you have good credit, you can potentially qualify for a credit card with a 0% introductory APR, which will give you time to pay off your wedding without having to pay interest. Some travel rewards cards even offer bonus miles for signing up, meaning you could potentially apply those miles to your honeymoon or give miles away as “thank you” gifts. If you have great credit, you may be able to score one of the coveted cards that offer great sign on bonuses.

If you are grabbing your credit card to help fund your wedding because you don't have the cash, you need to rethink your wedding budget and priorities. Start with looking at your guest list and see where you can scale back. If that is not an option, you should see about how you can save some money on entertainment. Could you use a DJ instead of a live band? Could you rethink the venue or the cocktail hour? Remember, as much as you want people to have a grand time, they are not expecting you to go into debt for them. They are there for you and your commitment to one another.
