How to Set a Budget
Tip #1: Plan to tackle the cost together.
Sit down with your partner and decide how much you’re willing to spend on your big day. Make room for some upward flexibility on that budget because it will definitely move.
Tip #2: Determine the kind of wedding you want.
This is probably the one part of planning a wedding budget checklist that you have already done, but if not, it’s time to start brainstorming! Do you and your partner want an intimate urban party, a huge get-together with all your family and friends, or a simple picnic in the park? Think about the style, the emotions, the look, and the people because these are all of the pieces that are going to make your wedding unique.
Tip #3: Know your priorities
You and your partner should each pick your own top three priorities for the wedding itself. These can be almost anything: your choice of music, having an open bar, hiring your friend as the photographer, how many tiers the cake is going to have, or any other detail that you each have strong feelings about.
Tip #4: Never afraid asking help
Prior to making any wedding decisions, you need to figure out what you have to spend and whether your families will contribute. Make sure you and your fiancé are in agreement about your priorities before talking to your parents about budget and logistics.
Your wedding is one of the best days of your life, so you may feel pressure to plan an elaborate celebration. But there’s no need to go into debt. You can have a wonderful, memorable wedding—no matter what your budget is!
