There are some couples who get too excited about booking suppliers, while others lose track of how much they’re already spending. You might not even realize that you’re shelling out thousands for things you don’t even need! But don’t worry, because we’re here to help. We asked a couple of professional wedding planners about some of the most common wedding budget mistakes brides and grooms are prone to making and how you can avoid them. Check out their expert advice!
While you might think the smaller purchases won’t hurt you now, they will still add up to your total costs!
Establish your priorities and what elements your wedding simply cannot live without. If food is important to you, then splurge on the caterer and see how much you can cut back on the rest. Major expenses often include the venue, catering, photographer, and videographer.
Not getting to know enough suppliers will limit your options and you might even end up wasting money.
Look up reviews, go to wedding fairs, and familiarize yourself with a wide range of suppliers and their quality of work!
Be careful with finding inspiration online. Not all of those pretty items are feasible for your budget.
Don’t feel pressured to make your wedding just like the ones you see online. Let your personality shine through, and no matter how much you spend, you’re sure to have a beautiful celebration!
It’s okay to want the best for your wedding, but there are times when we want too much of what we can’t afford.
Avoid all the frustration by being practical and knowing which items and suppliers are within your means. With some creativity, you can still have the wedding of your dreams while sticking to your budget.
So, don’t get overwhelmed by the many suppliers and must-have items to create a wedding. Your big day doesn’t have to be like everyone else’s! Stay calm, make a list of your expenses, and just remember what really matters most in making your wedding day truly special for you.
