By now, the concept of a wedding budget sample is a little clearer to you. Let's walk through an example. We will assume that the total budget is ฤꯠ (which is below the national average for a wedding budget). The percentages above can be changed accordingly to what you would prefer to focus on during the wedding. If the DJ and lighting design are more important, then you can allocate 11% towards the DJ and lighting instead of 10%. This would translate to (ฤꯠ x 12%) budget instead of a (ฤꯠ x 10%) budget for the DJ. Prioritize the list below as to what is most important to you and then adjust your percentages accordingly.
Almost everybody I know, which includes me, has let a budget get out of control at one time or another. I really think it used to be able to control personal finances because it was not as easy to spend money. As I work on my own budget, and as I speak to people I know, here are some common problems that get people in trouble. Debit and Credit Cards. It is just so easy to buy things by swiping a piece of plastic that we lose track of how much money we spend. A decade or so ago we spent cash or wrote checks. It made us think about spending money more as we had to carry enough money or go through the act of writing and recording our checks.
