Wedding Budget = Better Wedding
That's right, your Wedding Budget controls EVERYTHING!. Or to put it another way, money isn’t the only thing; just the main thing!!!If you don’t have a budget for your wedding, I suggest you stop everything and commit to determining your budget. That’s right. Don’t do any other thing. Find your mate and sort it out.
Start a Wedding Budget
But you say, “Where do we start?” Glad you asked. There are two ways to tackle this. One way is to add up what you think you’ll spend and let that be a starting point. The other is to determine how much you can spend, and then prioritize your expenses. I prefer the latter option.
Wedding Budget Priorities
What are the priorities of your wedding budget? What do they look like? These are the same categories you’ll be determining as you plan your wedding. They are venue, dress, rings, catering, tables and linens, DJ – entertainment, minister, photographer, videographer, cake, honeymoon, favors, gifts, formal wear, etc. And this is a very small list. Each one of these has sub-categories too.

One Last Wedding Budget Reminder
Your wedding will be as easy or stressful as you make it. The choice is yours. But most of the weddings I am around the budget (or lack of having a budget) seems to be a key indicator for how easy or stressful the wedding turns out. So don’t forget your wedding budget controls everything.
