It's June, traditionally THE wedding month! Couples all around the country are throwing bucket loads of money at their weddings. Don't do that! Don't think of your wedding day as the most important day of your life, think about all of the days that will follow it. Do something productive with that money to build your future instead of blowing it on one day! Slate.com has a calculator that shows how much money you would have if you had taken your wedding budget and invested it instead. You enter in how many years you've been married, and what you spent-and it delivers the mortifying truth! Check out The Wedding Calculator!

If you got married ten years ago and spent $10,000, it would be worth more than $65,000 now. Let that sink in!
