The cost of a wedding adds up quickly, and it’s not uncommon for couples or their families to underestimate the cost and experience some surprise when they see the real wedding budget breakdown. This is especially true when they have already committed funds to certain items, typically a wedding venue or photographer in the earliest planning stages. But don’t worry – you’re already steps ahead by the fact that you’re doing your research and getting the information now.
Going into planning mode without first creating your budget is a recipe for disaster. That’s why the #1 item that I absolutely recommend you tackle first is the BUDGET. I know, I know – this part is no fun – but before you click away just hear me out.
