For those of you getting married in the near future, don't forget that the first thing you need to do is set your budget. Find our who is contributing to your wedding fund and how much you have to spend. Are the Bride's parents paying for the wedding/reception and the Groom's parent's paying for the rehearsal dinner? How much have you saved for this event?
Then figure out what is really important to make your day everything you have dreamed of. Once you have your list together, break them down by priority so that you can break down the budget accordingly. Then start putting together estimates for what those items costs by calling around to various vendors in your area.
Using a planner to help set your budget gives you a realistic idea of what the various aspects of your wedding will cost. They can also get you better deals than you might have access to as a bride calling a vendor directly. Be realistic about your budget, though. For instance, you would like a sit down dinner for 150 people but only have $2,000 in your budget for the food. This is not realistic for a sit-down dinner, but might be feasable with a buffet, depending on the food you choose.
We provide a FREE consultaiton and at the end of that consultation, you will have a general idea of the budget for your wedding.
