If you are like the vast majority of the couples getting married, you probably do not have unlimited sums of money at your disposal. And yet, this is not something to stop you from having an unforgettable wedding day.
Creating a wedding budget is absolutely crucial if you want to make sure you don’t spend more than you can afford – and if you want to make sure you still get the wedding of your dreams too. Here are some tips to help you create a wedding budget that truly suits your particular situation:
- Sit down and talk. Rule out the things you don’t actually need or do not really want for your wedding. Decide on the things you can be “skimpy” with. Decide on the things you don’t want to make any kind of compromise on. Be honest about everything and find “half-way” solutions that work for both of you.
- Talk about who pays too. Traditionally, the family of the bride pays for (most of) the wedding. However, these days it has become more than acceptable to split the cost between the two families or even to allow the couple to support everything on your own. Make sure you decide on what’s best for everyone.
- Be very particular about how much you can afford spending. Take into consideration the total price of the wedding, as well as how much you can spend on each of the wedding vendors too. Also, don’t forget to take into consideration the fact that gratuities are not always included in the contracts you sign with the wedding vendors – and this means that you will have to include them in your wedding budget too.
