So you are engaged to get married but don't have a lot of extra money to spend for the wedding? No problem you can still have a beautiful wedding for nearly half the cost. The key ingredient to have is a budget worksheet and budget plan before doing anything. By spending the time to plan ahead and budget your major expenses you will ensure success in saving money. You will not be caught on a whim and spend over the amount planned. Not having a plan is a recipe for disaster because this often means you are searching for crucial items last minute which can really add up.
Last but not least you have the following categories: food, beverages, cake, decorations, music, photography, video, invitations, transportation, accommodation for the couple's wedding night, attendants' gift and miscellaneous costs. Keep in mind that the cost of the food and beverages is determined by the number of guests you invite to the wedding. When you start making a wedding budget, it's probably best to decide on the amount of money you've set aside and then determine the expenses and the number of people to invite. Otherwise, you will risk overspending.
