Wedding Tips #4: Plan a Wedding Budget

09 June 2016

So you’re engaged and the excitement of wanting to get moving with your Wedding Day plans start to take over.......You pick up every Wedding Magazine in the shop looking at everything from wedding venues to entertainment.......... Then you take a step back and think “How we will afford everything we want on our day!!” Let’s not panic: you can afford it. All you have to do is get your budget together and stick to it even if it means putting the date back by 6 months it will all be worth it. Plus, you get to enjoy being engaged for a little longer!


My advice would to start with a wedding budget planner. This will help not only manage what you spend, but also help keep track of what you still have to book or confirm (this worked for me!). When planning your budget don’t forget about the less expensive things, the likes of tan/nails/lingerie for the Bride and, of course, a hot shave the morning of the Wedding for the Groom! All the little things add up so it’s nice to have them in your budget.

Once you have an idea of the end cost, look at what you both can afford to put aside for the wedding weekly or monthly and deposit this into a separate “Wedding” bank account. This way, you will be less likely to dip in and use for everyday things.
