Creating Your Wedding Budget

Creating Your Wedding Budget

One of the biggest mistakes couples make when planning their wedding is not creating a realistic wedding budget and sticking to it.

I know, you'd rather be thinking about cake flavors, or choosing a color for the bridesmaids' dresses. But unless you have a fairy godmother with a magic wand, who will make this all appear, you really have to set up a wedding budget that will suit your tastes...and wallet!

And if you’re like me and you watch all those wedding shows, it’s easy to get carried away with expensive over-the-top wedding ideas! But starting your new married life in debt over wedding bills is not the way to go! And although your wedding budget will define the choices you make, and what you will be able to spend, you can have a beautiful wedding no matter what your budget! At Love Wedding Shop, it is our mission is to provide high quality bridal, wedding, and special event products at the very best prices

It used to be the father of the bride would pay for the wedding, and although it is still common for the bride's parents to pay for the majority of the wedding expenses, we're seeing parents of the groom contribute as well. We're also seeing couples pay for their own wedding. Determine who will be contributing financially to your wedding and the total amount you'll have to work with.

Once you have your total amount, and a general idea of your wedding vision, do your research and find out what the things you want actually cost in your area before you start writing down any numbers.

Then decide on the 3 most important elements of your wedding. You know, your "must-haves". Not what's important to your mothers, fathers, or your friends. What's important to you and your future spouse. That's where you'll put your money first. Just remember, if you go over budget on one item you'll have to make up for it by taking away from others.
Think realistically about what you can accomplish with your wedding budget and the amount of time you have to plan. Whether your budget is $10,000, $50,000, or even $100,000, creating a realistic wedding budget and sticking to it will help you plan a beautiful wedding without spending more than you can afford.
Love Wedding Shop offers a large selection of bridal and wedding accessories at affordable prices.
