The perfect weather to sit down with a pen and a piece of paper (and an optional cup of tea or glass of wine!) and start making a rough budget plan for your Wedding Day!
I am sure that, just like I was when I got engaged, you are so excited and happy about the prospect
of your Wedding Day that you didn’t give much thought about how much that Big Day would actually cost…
Yes, you know that it will be expensive… But do you realise HOW expensive it can be?
So, I dare you to grab a pen and a piece of paper (an iPad or any other device would work just fine too!) and write down everything you think you would need to pay for your Big Day. Go ahead! Scribble
Are you done yet?
So, now, read that list again and I bet you have forgotten a good few details…
Have you got: the flowers, the dress, the suits, the photographer, the venue, the RINGS (!!!), the DJ, the entertainment, the cake, the wine, the shoes, the bridesmaid dresses, the bridesmaid presents’ wedding favours, the invites, the decoration….?
When I wrote my own list, many moons ago, I did think roughly about the flowers, but to be honest I only thought about my bouquet… I hadn’t realised you need flowers for the church or the registry office, flowers for the dinner/party venue, etc.
So, I would suggest you keep that list handy and add things as you progress through the Wedding Day countdown.
Now, take your paper or your iPad again, and put a figure next to each item on your list… a rough figure of what you think each item would cost.
Now, add the sums up… Have you chocked on that biscuit yet?
If you haven’t, congratulations you have a solid bank account!
If you have, I am sorry to say that it will probably end up costing way more than that figure at the bottom of your list!
To finish, have a read through this link. It is short and concise, but it will be an eye-opener!
It’s ok, you can thank me later! 🙂
