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.
