Having a budget for your wedding can help the whole planning process make more sense. Although money has little to do with love, weddings can prove expensive occasions, so it’s really important to determine how much money you will have to work with. These days anything goes when it comes to funding a wedding, from the bride and groom funding the entire event themselves, to the parents assisting with the expenses, and right through to your guests paying for their own meals at the reception.
Regardless of how much money you have, a well planned, well organised budget may help you make the most of any financial situation. You can still have an amazing and perfect day whatever your budget is.
We came across a list which categorizes the key items involved in organizing a wedding and gives you a guide to who pays for what (traditionally). Obviously this is only a guide and it doesn’t list monetary amounts, but it definitely puts the day in to perspective. After you’ve worked out who’s paying for what, you can then start getting quotes and begin booking and organising specifics for the day. Eg. Booking a string quartet for your ceremony music &/or reception!
