Having the wedding you have always dreamed of is going to cost you. Sorry. You will soon discover that when vendors hear that you’re getting married, they usually tack on 10 percent to their normal costs. BUT, it is your wedding and you will want to everything to be perfect despite the cost. Shoes, rings, wedding photographer, reception that your friends will be envious of. Unless you suddenly hit the lottery, you will most likely be working off of a wedding budget.
It’s not easy cutback on your expenses. Like most marrying couples, you will want the latest and greatest in wedding trends. And it’s so hard too when there are hit shows, displaying what your wedding should look like. Yes, it is your wedding, and you’ve probably been thinking about this forever. However, it is just one day. You don’t want to spoil your wedding budget in one shot. Do you really want to start off your marriage in debt?
If you’re watching those reality wedding shows, you will see that those brides are completely unreasonable. You do not have to be that person. Look at what is most important to you? Is it having your dream wedding dress? A particular wedding venue? Whatever it is, cut back on minor things in order to have what you truly do want.
