Planning a wedding is so exciting, but with that excitement can come the urge to spend way more than your budget allows. No matter what your budget is, Kiss the Planner offers three things you should ask yourself about your budget and tips on striking the perfect balance.
1. “Is it really necessary?” While this seems like a very basic question, it is one that brides forget many times. It’s a constant battle of need versus want. While getting married is meant to be about the bride and groom, it is very easy to get caught up in the excitement of wedding planning. So the question to ask is- how badly is a chocolate fountain needed when the hotel offers a cake that is already included in the wedding package? And are hand-made invitations a must-have, or will a pre-selected design suffice? The idea is to simply brainstorm and budget before dishing out funds that might be regretted later. While it’s fine to hang on to the things that may invoke a more rapid heartbeat, it is important to really look at whether or not that photo booth is needed, how badly it is wanted and if there is another available alternative.
2. “Will guests really remember this?” This is an excellent question. While a bride and groom want their wedding guests to remember the day for eternity, there are many parts of a wedding that guests usually forget soon thereafter. Unfortunately, these are some things that a couple may have spent a lot of money and time on. So, before deciding to have a top band from another state or region that can cost twice the amount of a local band, it is important to ask “Will guests really remember this and is it really necessary?” Maybe a small change in expectations will make all the difference.
3. “Can these funds be used for something else?” A couple works very hard in preparing for and saving for their wedding. While not the most fun questions to toss around, chances are that it will pay off in the end. Before investing in a honeymoon tallying a grand per night, it is important to make sure that those funds aren't badly needed somewhere else. Perhaps now is the time for a house, or to pay off a big debt. Sleeping well at night can be a great way to start off a new marriage.
