Are you planning a wedding on a budget or do you need to follow a set budget so you don’t overspend? We hear this a lot and there is something you can do to save money on your wedding and not blow your budget. We are going to provide you with some tips that are easy to follow and guaranteed to help you stay on budget for your wedding.
First, don’t buy anything until you have created a wedding plan. Even if you find something that you just have to have, don’t spend anything until you know what you need and what your budget will be.
Second, don’t get too carried away with the guest list. Remember, every guest will cost you money and even though it may be nice to have more people help celebrate your special day, the costs could get out of control. In addition to the cost of food and beverages for each additional guest, you’ll also have to factor in costs of rentals, transportation and favours and that could lead to a blown budget in no time.
Third, understand everything before you sign it. Every venue is different and the things that you might think are included in the price, may not be after all. Be sure to call a rental company and get quotes for anything that is not included with the site so that you’ll know what the total cost is for that venue before you book. This will save you money and ensure there are no surprises later on.
Finally, stick to your timeline. You can find wedding checklists online that include a very specific timeline. This will save you money as many venues, caterers and wedding car hire services charge more when you book last minute.
These are just some tips that can help you stick to your budget and ensure you don’t spend more than you can afford on your wedding. Weddings are expensive but they don’t have to break you. Careful planning and sticking to a budget will help even the most lavish of spenders out there.
