Planning For Your Wedding Budget Wisely

Aug 14, 2008
A wedding is becoming more expensive nowadays. This is probably because people are now catering for something more special and unique. Yes it is very true that every bride would like to make her wedding special and unique. Yet you still need to think about the costs and it is very important for you to plan your budget wisely.

In your wedding, you will need to consider a lot of details. You will also need to consider the budget of all these details. Your wedding venue may probably be the most important part in your wedding. On the other hand, your wedding invitation may only be a small part in your wedding when you budget is concerned. However, you will still need to think about it even if it will only be a very small part of your wedding budget.

Since the wedding venue will probably be the most expensive item in your wedding, you may first of all think about it. In fact, the number of guests you are going to invite will affect the amount of money you will spend on your wedding venue. If you are going to invite 200 guests, you will certainly need a bigger venue and this will certainly cost you more money. On the other hand, if you are going to host a very small wedding and have it at your home. The amount of money you need to spend can be as low as zero and in this case you can allocate your resources to other parts of your wedding.

Then you will probably need to think about your reception catering. Depending on the kind of food you are planning to serve to the guests, the cost per head can be as low as $50 per guest. However it can also be as high as $200 per guests. You will need to know how much you are planning to spend before you make this decision. If you would like to save money on this item, you may consider cooking yourself. In this case it can be certain that you will be able to save quite a large amount of money. Of course you have to consider it carefully before you make this decision since it is not easy to prepare the food for your reception yourself.

As mentioned, the cost of your wedding invitation will probably be only a small part of wedding. However, the fact here is that a card can be as cheap as $0.50 per card. For more expensive invitations, it can go to something like $10 per card. Again, it will depend on the type of invitation you choose.

The wedding favor is also somehow similar to your wedding invitations. It can be very expensive. Of course there are also a lot of budget options. If you tend to believe your guests will not keep your wedding favor at home, you will probably go for the budget option.

The last thing you may need to consider is your wedding photography. The range of prices can be something between $300 and $4000. Again, if your budget does not allow, you may need to go for a budget option.
