Budgeting Your Wedding

You’re engaged! Now it’s time to start the wedding planning process. The most important item to tackle is the budget. Here are some tips on determining a budget you can afford. A good starting point is to figure you’ll be spending at least $150 per guest (half of that amount for food and drinks}. Be sure to make room for what matters most to you. If food and music are the most important parts of your big day, then cut back in other areas like favors and flowers. Use an online budget worksheet/calculator (I like  wedding.theknot.com/wedding-planning-tools/tools-wedding-budget.aspx). Tt’ll keep you on track throughout the entire planning process.
