When it comes to numbers and accounts, not many people would love to tow that part. With weddings, it’s an inevitable part of the process; punching numbers and knowing percentages, and quite frankly, it can be exhausting as well as dull.
You must create a budget that will guide the expenses that concern your wedding planning to avoid unpleasant situations. To help make this task less daunting, here is a guide to creating a wedding budget:
Knowing the type of wedding you want to have is the first step to creating a wedding budget. Whether it’s a backyard, church, park, indoor, garden, or castle event, be sure to make it clear and always have it in mind.
This way, you know how to go about the number of guests to expect, which is the easiest way to cut costs. You’ll also know when and how to cut down the guest list unless, of course, you’re throwing a banquet!
Of course, you’ve been talking with your partner; the wedding is for both of you. However, with your budget, there’s a need to put heads together and come up with the non-negotiables.
These are aspects you can’t trade for anything at your wedding. For instance, food, drinks, venue, music, etc. Map out possible amounts for them. Also, list them according to your scale of preference and work with them.
Suppose you determine the type of wedding you desire. In that case, you can work from there to know what aspects are affordable and if services and packages vary with prices.
As with traditions and majorly in the past, parents took up about 46% of the wedding expenses. There’s a need to sit with your parents to know how much they’re willing to add or contribute.
However, it is in no way an obligation as in recent times; couples are expected to handle the wedding expenses themselves, especially if they’ve been independent for some time.
