Wedding Budget Tip #11:

Prioritize. Make a list of what’s most important to you about your day.

One of the biggest things that will help you in terms of determining your wedding budget is to prioritize.

Sit down with your fiancé and think about all the things that make up a wedding day. Decide what’s most important to you individually and then compare your priority lists.

This might be your first test in marital compromising, but it’s important to take both of your wants and desires into consideration! Hopefully, there will be overlap on your lists, and you can set those items as top priority, budget-wise.

Perhaps great food is at the top of his list of wedding priorities, but photography is at the top of yours. You can still focus your time, energies and budget to those two areas, you’ll just have to find ways to cut down on costs elsewhere. (It CAN be done — here’s some ideas of how to cut costs without your guests noticing.)

Once you decide what’s most important to you, you can start to prioritize and allocate your budget accordingly.

 

So tell us:

what’s your top priority budget-wise for your wedding?
