Need Help With Wedding Budgeting? 3 Tips For You

So, you already know who you want to spend the rest of your life with, and you know how you want to walk down that aisle. But, wait a minute — do you know how to throw a wedding you don’t have to break the bank for?
Don’t be ashamed to admit you need help with wedding budgeting. So do a lot of couples! The good news is that while coming up with a budget that you won’t have any trouble sticking to can be tough, you can easily rise to the challenge. Start by acknowledging that you need help with wedding budgeting. Then, make use of these tips.
1. Look at the big financial picture. Sure, you’re fixated on the dress, like any bride would be. But the dress isn’t the only thing you have to spend for. Think rings, food, reception, and all sorts of expenditures betwixt and between. So you don’t go overboard on your dress buying, list down everything you need to pay for, and then estimate how much you can spare for the dress, the reception, and everything else.
2. Economize where and when you can. Who says your cake has to be the biggest or the most impressive? Don’t give in to the urge to splurge just to keep up with the Joneses. Keep things sweet and simple. You can get a beautiful three-layered cake, for example, instead of a six-tiered giant that your friends and family can’t finish in one sitting anyway.
3. Do the numbers regularly. So, you pay for your dress and think you can afford to pay for a tiara as well. But, can you really? There’s only one way to find out and that is to do the math. Keep a running list of your expenses. This way, you will know with a glance how much you have already spent and how much you can afford to spend.
In these tough times, it has become even tougher to throw beautiful weddings. If you need help with wedding financial planning, use these three tips to get you started on the right path. Good luck!…
