WEDDING EXPENSES


Money seems to be one thing that is on everybody’s mind. However when planning your wedding is it okay to go into dept just to plan this celebration? One thing to keep in mind here is that you can still have a great wedding without going overboard on the budget. This is your chance to get creative and try to figure out how to do things that work within your set budget. Weddings can get very expensive however just because you don’t have a lot of money does NOT mean you still can’t have a great. Unlike the old days when the parents of the bride would be responsible for paying for the wedding, and the grooms parents would be responsible for paying for the couples honeymoon, these traditions have seemed to have faded away. Now the couple might be responsible for the entire wedding themselves. Sometimes, if things aren’t done the way the parents like, they may choose to opt out of their offer to pay for a particular expense. There are many areas in which people can easily cut costs. For instance, cut back on your guest list. You don’t need to invite five hundred people to your wedding. Inviting just close family and friends can cut hundreds if not thousands from your cost. There’s no point invited hundreds and hundreds of people if you can’t accommodate for them all. Areas you don’t want to cut back budget would be photography. Your pictures are the one thing that you will have for years to just look at and memories on that grand day of yours. Having unprofessional pictures is not a great way to cut costs. Careful and thoughtful planning is the best way to save money. As the saying goes “don’t try to have a champagne wedding on a beer budget.” Compromise whenever possible. For example a disc jockey instead of a band will help cut down costs. I will now provide you with a simple breakdown of the wedding to give you a feel of how expensive things can be.
