Things to Consider when Creating a Wedding Budget

Planning your perfect wedding on a budget can be stressful, especially for
couples who don’t know how to create a wedding budget. There are factors to
consider and steps to follow. To help you out, here’s a handy guide to
creating a wedding budget.

How much do you really need for the wedding?

You need to analyse how much you want to spend on the wedding. You should
make a decision based on the amount of money you can afford, and not based
on the promise your parents or your aunty has made concerning your wedding.

Consider the amount you will save

After sorting out the amount of money you are willing to spend for your
wedding, the next step is to figure out how much you will save for your big
day and make sure you stick to it.

The number of guests for your wedding

The number of guests also plays an important role when creating your
budget. So, decide on how many people you will be able to cater for and
make sure you stick to the number.

The time of the year

The time of the year is an important factor to consider when creating a
wedding budget. If you plan on spending less money for your wedding, it is
best you avoid setting a date during the festive period when things are
more expensive.

Consider the most important things first

What is most important for you to have at your wedding? The best dress,
makeup, jewelry? Décor? Amazing pictures? Or is it an abundance of food and
drinks for guests? What can you sacrifice? Personal preference plays a role
in budget allocation. Basically, where to save on and where to splurge.
Then, set your expectations accordingly.
