Before you start looking at venues, photographers, or anything you need to sit down and set a budget. It is all too easy for the overall cost of your wedding to increase to more than you necessarily wanted to spend, and if you don’t start with a budget, you can pretty much ensure that it will.

So take some time. You don’t need to start booking things as soon as you’ve got engaged. Sit down, have a look at your take some time. You don’t need to start booking things as soon as you’ve got engaged. Sit down, have a look at your finances, chat with your parents and come up with a budget that you are happy with. And then think about what is the most important things to you. Do you want a big wedding with lots of people around you, or a fancy meal to enjoy?

Are photography and videography really important to you (after all, when everything is said and done, it is your photos and your video that will bring back all the emotions from the day and help you relive it)? Working out what the most important things are to you will help you to divide up your budget across the different areas of your wedding. Venues, photography and videography, outfits, gifts etc. It will help you see where you might be able to save, or where you would like to focus your finances.

And lastly, write it down.

Whether that is on a spreadsheet, in a notebook or on your phone, have something, somewhere, that shows your proposed budget and your rough suggestions of how much to spend and in which areas. Don’t be afraid to go back to the drawing board and amend it if need be as you start searching for your perfect location and photographers and dress etc. But having a starting point is incredibly helpful so that you know that you and your fiance are on the same wavelength.
