Setting a wedding budget can be a daunting task. Figuring out how much is enough and reasonable can seem impossible, especially if you’ve never planned a wedding before. Speaking to a planner and having a budget meeting before booking anything is the best way to get the most out of your budget. They will be there to hear your priorities and give you a realistic view of pricing based on your guest count and desired area for a venue. Overspending can happen quickly and easily. It’s good to factor in vendor pricing for fixed prices and guest variable prices. Adding a guest table is much more costly than most think and eliminating one may not save as much as you hoped it would. It’s because of all these factors and more that speaking with a well seasoned wedding planner is advised when setting a wedding budget. Why go through it alone?!
