Weddings are a very popular event in the United States, with 2.4 million occurring yearly. This means that a lot of people are tying the knot each day! If you and your significant other are trying to plan your dream wedding, you may be having one issue: budgeting while thinking big.
You can still have a memorable wedding within a very manageable budget. It’s all about being smart and decisive, though. Here are some tips to help you through this exciting process.
Decide What Is Non-Negotiable
Kicking off your planning with possible conflict may not seem like the brightest idea, but you need to know what each side wants right away. Find out what you will not budge on and then work around that. You will both know where you stand on certain aspects of your wedding, and this step will prevent any surprises down the road.
Create Your Wedding Budget
This is another step that you need to do before finding a wedding location and booking a caterer. You need to know how much you’re able and willing to spend. Then, match those other non-negotiables around that budget and closely track the money that you are spending to make sure that you don’t go over.
Find Different Locations
There are so many great places that can serve as a perfect wedding location, especially if you live in a city or suburb. A country club could be perfect, as you could have an outdoor wedding and eat inside, thus saving you and your guests extra travel to go from the ceremony to the reception.
Consider a Small Dream Wedding
While you may have dreamed of having a wedding with hundreds of guests, that can quickly get expensive. You might want to consider having a smaller and more intimate wedding. This way, you can also mingle with your guests and not feel overwhelmed, either.
Planning a wedding can quickly get tricky without thinking it through first. But if you follow the tips above, you can put yourself in a good position to plan a dream wedding and still have a fantastic honeymoon.
