Sort out your budget in the early days and not just your overall figure. Do your research and know how much of your money you want to allocate to every service and vendor. This will be a huge help down the road and ensure that you still have some cash left at the end of all this. Follow this formula for an easy guide –
48 to 50 percent of total budget to reception
8 to 10 percent for flowers
8 to 10 percent for attire
8 to 10 percent for entertainment/music
10 to 12 percent for photo/video
2 to 3 percent for invites; 2 to 3 percent for gifts
8 percent for miscellaneous items like a wedding coordinator.
Keep an extra 5-10% of your budget tucked away for any extra expenses like reprinting additional invites.
Put your beauty on trial.
Hair, makeup, nails and especially fake tan are important to trial. Not only will trials make sure you’re happy with the final look but it also gives you a chance to experiment with different hair styles, lip colours etc. This will also help you to avoid looking like a tangerine on your wedding day (go easy on the tan.)
Have some fun with your wedding appointments.
Over the year – you’re going to be swimming in appointments. Whether it’s to decide what flavored
filling you’ll have in your cake, tours of potential venues or whether to have fish or chicken – make sure you go into these appointments and have fun! Make a day of it and enjoy the occasions.
