Budget Wedding 101

When you’re reading this article, you’re probably wondering, is it even possible to hold a wedding while staying on a budget? And yes, it’s possible as long as you know how to do so. We get it though, a marriage is supposed to be grand, but perhaps you have other plans, such as using the money for a memorable honeymoon rather than for a wedding that lasts only for a day. In this article, we’re going to help you on how to plan your wedding while also keeping your budget in check because you don’t want to be in debt when you just got married right?

Create a Budget List

checklistBefore you make reservations and everything, a simple way to stay on budget is to do some research on venues, dress, and even saloons. This way, you’ll know how much you have to save, and how much you’re going to have to pay.

Remember, don’t force yourself to tire yourself to do the catering; we are trying to stay on the budget but your health for your grand day is important as well.…
