Wedding Budgeting

Planning a wedding can be a massive undertaking, as anyone who has flipped through a bridal magazine or witnessed a bridezilla breakdown can attest to. There are so many different aspects that must be arranged for that it can seem overwhelming, even early in the budgeting stage. It’s easy to overlook smaller expenses like tablecloths in the face of larger budgetary concerns such as the reception hall, catering, the photographer, the cake, and so on. However, even the smaller costs can add up over time, so it’s important to make sure you take into account wedding favors and expenses that might not come to mind right away. Make sure you account for every area in which you need to spend first, particularly if you have a set budget. Remember that simple accessories are a great way to save — personalized napkins are much more expensive than plain ones, for example.
