While the wedding planning period really ought to be a fun-filled and incredibly exciting time, soon it can turn into something rather stressful. What’s the most likely culprit you may ask for this undue stress, that’s right, the budget!
Most of us dream of having a beautiful wedding, but what we really don’t dream of is the costs that tag along with preparations. Seriously, though the present wedding industry and its associated costs have gotten out of hand. Today, hosting a wedding means you should live up to the expectations of people who expect an extravagant affair. This ends up putting undue pressure on couples and their families, in the end, leaves them to wonder whether spending a lot just to get married is truly necessary.
The great news is that it’s possible to have a lavish and memorable wedding reception without breaking the bank. To ease off the pressure on your mind and your bank account, we at Let’s Celebrate Events have some key facts you should know about planning a wedding on a tight budget.
When planning a wedding, the most common mistake that couples end up making is not agreeing on a wedding budget. When you both have an exact figure, this will help to provide a framework from which you can think about building your wedding plans and determine the elements that are most important to you. For this, you can contact us, your wedding decorators in Atlanta and we can guide you on the costs plus how you can split the money across each item.
During the planning stage, it is very easy to get carried away with personalized stationery and tiered cakes (thanks to Pinterest!), however, it is worth having a detailed conversation with your significant other about what is important to both you on the big day. Whether it is unlimited booze, a show-stopping venue, enchanting centerpieces, or a killer band, you both have to prioritize what is deserving of the budget and things you wouldn’t mind scrimping on.
If you are on a tight budget, you may not be able to have the lavish and extravagant wedding you dreamt of when you were a kid. When you plan your Atlanta wedding décor, be realistic about the things you can afford and keep the purpose of your big day in mind- to get married and finally be with your better half!
