The most difficult part of planning a wedding is undoubtably, the budget. How much is OK to spend? How much is too much? Can you overcome it? And does all that money worth spending for just one day? The easiest (and the probably the right) way to keep track of your budget, is to hire a professional wedding planner. But if this is not a choice for you, then you just have to read the tips we gathered for you.
- DECIDE WHAT’S IMPORTANT FOR YOU
Both of you need to decide what screams “YOU” more than anything and invest in it. Do you love a good meal? Then invest on the food. Are you kind of party animals? Then invest on drinks and good music!
- SIMPLIFY THE WEDDING PARTY
From not having one at all, to make choices out of the ordinary. Book a bar for your wedding party. Invest on drinks and music and don’t choose a fancy wedding venue.
- SHOP FROM YOUR HOME
Okay, hear us out. In your home, you can find objects with great sentimental value for you and your partner. How cool would it be to use those objects for your wedding decoration?
- LEAVE AIR TO YOUR BUDGET
Always allocate an extra 5-10% of your initial budget. There are many hidden costs that you can’t consider form the start of the wedding planning.
- WRITE DOWN EVERY PURCHASE
Keep a plan with all your expenses so you’ll have a clear image of your budget. Write down even the smallest purchase, like your wedding earrings or your groom’s socks.
