    Hi,
    I am new to the forums so pelase go easy on me


    I have 9000.00 that is for my Wedding next April 2019 (so 8 months away). I am looking for the best place to save or invest (low risk) this money until I need it for the wedding. Can anyone point me in the right direction?

    Probably just normal savings accounts are the best bet for you

    https://www.moneysavingexpert.com/savings/savings-accounts-best-interest/

    You could get slightly better interest if you want to jump through a few hoops every month with a current account though

    I wouldn't even be considering investing for just 9 months. Especially if it's for a fixed date like your wedding. Too much risk.

    As above, how would your other half feel if your best intentions to grow the pot of money, ended with a loss?

    You'd be smart to put it into a savings account as above, or play around with interest paying current accounts.
