Chances are you won’t have an unlimited wedding budget (if only you were that lucky!). whether it’s you, your parents or a combination of both you will have to financially plan your Big Day very carefully.
By preparing a budget with a list of intended expenditure for each item, you will be able to monitor and better control your costs. It is your prerogative to change your minds over what you want and how much you’re willing to spend on it but by keeping a record you will be aware of the impact this will have on your budget and be able to adjust your spending accordingly.
