3 Things That Could Drastically Affect Your Wedding Budget

Your budget is one of the first things that you will sit down and discuss when planning your

wedding. It can also cause the most stress during the planning process.

Below are 3 things that could affect your wedding budget and add to your wedding planning


1. Where you wed. Your wedding location will play a leading role in the creation of your

budget. Venues that are situated in popular areas will generally charge more than

smaller venues outside of main cities. Venues also have different packages and

policies that you'll need to consider. For example, some venues might require you to

use their vendors, some of which might not fit in with your budget. A lot of venues

also have minimum catering requirements that may go beyond your guest list. It's

important to look at average costs of areas and venues before you make a final

decision on where you want to get married.

2. Time of the year. Wedding seasons make a big difference to costs. Planning to get

married on a Saturday in the summer? Chances are you're going to end up paying a

lot more for your wedding. Look at your budget and how it fits in with the venue and

location you have in mind and whether you can move your wedding to another season

or day of the week to save on costs. Vendors might also be able to offer you

discounts for off-peak days and seasons.

3. The number of guests. This is one area that can very easily get out of control. Your

guests are going to take up a large portion of your budget so it pays to be sensible

about who you're inviting. Most venues will charge you for everything from drinks and

food to the chair your guest will be sitting on so think twice about inviting your aunt

who you haven't seen in 2 years. Agree on how many guests you want to invite and

stick to it.

If you want to stick to your wedding budget and not be in debt by the time you come back

from your honeymoon, carefully plan your finances before you even begin planning your

wedding. Working with a wedding planner would be an added bonus as they can help you

find better prices and keep you on track financially
