Alright, back to business. The budget.
Now that you have your priorities and foundations set, you can break your boundary number into each of the wedding categories:
- Printed details & Communication
- Food & Beverage
- Attire & Beauty
- Photography & Videography
- Music & Entertainment
- Travel & Transportation
- Gifts & Gratuities
The more research you've done, the better your estimates will be.
Now, based on your original priority list, make your decisions on who, what, when, and where.
Now that you know what you estimate your costs to be, prioritize the above list. Then, assign amounts to each of the above categories, based on your priority and the research you've done on estimated costs. As you make your decisions, move funds around. Just be sure that you aren't taking too much from one place to cover another that really isn't a priority for you. What will happen is you'll end up having to give up something that you really wanted.
