Managing a Wedding Budget
Many couples approach wedding planning with grand ideas and are unaware how quickly costs add up. The budget must be carefully planned and managed.
- By choosing a style and theme for their wedding, the couple can frequently revisit their expectations of how they want the day to look and feel, while sticking to their budget.
- They must be prepared to compromise and reassess their options at each stage in order to stick to their budget.
- It is then easier to fill in the gaps and plan the day in full, rather than feeling unfocused with a budget that is spiralling out of control.
- The date and time of a wedding can have a major impact on the budget. For example, choosing to marry on a weekday at a quiet time of year often means lower venue costs.
