hi, i've been around just a few weeks and have found reading these boards to be extremely helpful. so thanks in advance!

i'd like some advice. my boyfriend and i have about $10,000 total in CC debt, maybe about $30,000 in student loans, and own our condo. we bought the condo a year and a half ago for $175,000. right now, we are trying to be as aggressive as we can on our cc debt so there isn't much room to save. so here's what i was wondering....

my bf (fiancee i guess) are planning our wedding for june '06. we are guessing that it will cost around $9,000. i had thought that taking out a home equity line of credit would be the way to go, but someone just told me that i couldn't do that if i have two morgages (i do). so i have to look into that. regardless, does anyone have any other ideas on financing it? is a $9,000 too much for a wedding with the amount of debt we have?
