BUDGET?!?!!?? This is a scary word for couples but it is a common word for vendors. A budget or a suggested cost on how much something will cost is necessary in order to determine if the vendor you are approaching is a vendor that fits within your price point. This in the long run will save you time and frustration. I found a really cool site for couples to look into that will guide them on their budget concepts for planning their special day.
Cost of Wedding is a cool tool that will definitely keep you on track for your budget. It allows you to put in the zip code for where you are getting married and "Cost of Weddings" adjusts the percentages based on that area of how much an average wedding costs. Moving forward don't shy away from the big "B" but definitely be more prepared on the reality of how much your dream day will cost.
