Let us be your Wedding Financial Planner & have a Wauna Wedding!

As soon as the proposal happens, the wedding planning begins (sometimes before). However, if you are like many people, you are paying for your own wedding, or honeymoon, or any of the giant expenses often involved in saying “I do.” At the Shore Style Wedding Faire there will all sorts of vendors helping you with your upcoming nuptials, including Wauna Credit Union.

For many, the idea of parents paying for their children’s wedding is a fairy tale, and even being able to save for a wedding for years and years, is difficult, it can start that union with unneeded stress or prolonged waiting. So, how does one cover the costs of rings, the honeymoon, and the wedding? Even a small, intimate wedding of just your closest friends and family is going to cost more than most can readily afford. What’s a couple to do?

One simple way to deal with these expenses is with a personal loan. A personal loan is often the least expensive way to pay. It’s way cheaper than using a credit card, and the qualifying process is quicker than trying to do a home equity loan. Borrowing for your wedding is a simple way to make your dreams come true without the stress. We can set your loan payment to fit your budget, and we can make the payments automatic to keep it simple.

A wedding loan could actually help you build credit as a couple,  which will serve you well when purchasing a home, or a new car in the future, and Wauna Credit Union will be there to assist with that as well. In fact, we offer a variety of options to take the worry out of paying for your wedding so you can focus on planning it, and your new life together. For example, apply for a personal loan to cover the big wedding costs, and a Wauna Credit Union VISA credit card to pay for incidentals or to use on your honeymoon – it’s far more secure than cash or debit cards when traveling. If you opt for a Rewards card, you might even cover airfare with the points you earn!

Why struggle? Let us be you Wedding Financial Planner, and take the stress off of paying for the big event, so you can enjoy your special day and focus on the most important thing – each other.

Wauna Credit Union Exhibiting at the Shore Style Wedding Faire

This Saturday, January 28, Wauna Credit Union will be attending the annual Shore Style Wedding Faire in Astoria. The event hosts vendors from all over the North Coast, from DJs to caterers, all helping couples decide how their wedding will look and feel. We will be there to let people know about our Lifestyle Loans, affordable loans to support specific or unexpected needs that require financial support. The loans cover many different things, including medical bills, household improvement or auto repairs. The Lifestyle Loan is a great option for somebody looking for a little extra money for a wedding ceremony, reception, rings, honeymoon, or even the little miscellaneous costs that always seem to pop up.

In addition to Lifestyle Loans, we offer other solutions for people looking to pay for an upcoming wedding (or other event). For example, a parent with home can use the equity in their home to take out a home equity line of credit, which provides a revolving credit line to use on any life expenses. For those looking for a way to have access to funds instantly a HELOC is a great way to go. You pay interest only on funds used, and they can be used for anything at all.

Another great option is a credit card. Wauna offers both VISA Rewards and VISA Platinum credit cards for our members with established credit, and we also have a First Time VISA to help younger members establish credit.

Stop by the Wauna Credit Union table to get more information. We’ll have somebody there taking applications, and also answering questions on how we can help you finance your reception, honeymoon, or any other expense surrounding your wedding. We’ll also be hosting a raffle in which three lucky entrants will win $50.

We look forward to seeing you there.
