So, as you are planning and dreaming about that special day, a day that you will finally announce to the world that you are officially a couple, there is one thing that is probably troubling you; how much should you spend on your wedding? This is one question that both those who have seemingly unlimited resources and those who have to work around a given budget ask themselves, of course for different reasons. To answer this question you have to take into account a few things.
The number one thing that will determine how much you will spend on your big day is the money you have or you are capable of raising. Some people start saving way in advance for this day and that means that they decided early how much they are willing to spend. At the end of the day the important thing is to ensure that all aspects of the wedding are well taken care of.
This is an integral part of the wedding and your life together as a married couple. Therefore ensure that you get the best money can buy.
• Guest list
This is another thing that will determine how much you will spend. You are free to invite whoever you want for your wedding but always remember that the more the people, the more money you spend on things like food, drinks and even the venue. Not everyone needs to be in attendance. Just invite close family members and a few other friends. You may probably think they will hate you for overlooking them but at the end of the day they will have to understand that your budget could not allow.
• The wedding attire
Weddings are a big business for those in the fashion industry as you will have to shop for clothes to wear. These include the dress for the bride, clothes for the groom, groomsmen, bridesmaid and so on. All these will cost you money and depending on the type of clothes and where you shop, you are bound to spend a lot. Therefore decide on this as well. Remember, you can always get elegant wedding attire at considerably low prices. The key is to check various stores and see what they have to offer.
• Other important things
For this day to be a success there are other things you have to budget for. These include transportation, flowers, venue, entertainment, food and photographer(s). Make sure that you get the best deals as you shop for these since they will help keep the cost of the wedding down. You need to ensure that the important people (bride and groom) get to the wedding venue in style. Therefore get nice cars for the same.
There is no limit as to how much you should spend on your wedding. It all depends with your budget.
