What to spend money on and what not too...

Planning a wedding can be a stressful and expensive affair. With so many things to consider, it can be difficult to decide where to allocate your budget. In this blog post, we'll provide some tips on what to spend money on and what not to at your wedding.

What to Spend Money On

Venue: The venue sets the tone for your wedding, so it's important to choose a beautiful and functional location. A good venue will have plenty of space for your guests, beautiful scenery, and all the amenities you need to make your wedding day perfect.

Food and Drinks: Your guests will be looking forward to enjoying a delicious meal and drinks at your wedding, so it's important to allocate a decent portion of your budget to catering. Choose a reputable caterer who can provide quality food and drinks that will leave your guests satisfied.

Photography: Your wedding day is one of the most important days of your life, and you want to remember it forever. Hiring a good photographer who can capture all the special moments is crucial. Don't be afraid to spend a little extra on a photographer who can deliver beautiful and high-quality images.

Music and Entertainment: A great DJ or live band can set the tone for your reception and keep your guests dancing all night long. Allocating a portion of your budget to music and entertainment is a good idea.

What Not to Spend Money On

Favors: While wedding favors are a nice gesture, they can be expensive and often end up being left behind by guests. Consider skipping favors altogether or choosing a more affordable option, like a small bag of candy or a personalized thank-you note.

Expensive Invitations: While it's important to have beautiful and well-designed invitations, spending a lot of money on them is not necessary. There are plenty of affordable options that can still look elegant and classy.

Over-the-Top Decorations: While it's tempting to go all out with wedding decorations, it's not necessary. Simple and tasteful decorations can still make a big impact without breaking the bank.

Dessert: Why spend hundreds or even thousands of dollars on a cake to also have dessert served, save money and use your cake as dessert, you dont want to be left with a massive cake for the rest of your marriage.

In conclusion, when planning your wedding, it's important to allocate your budget wisely. Focus on spending money on the most important aspects of your wedding, like the venue, food and drinks, photography, and entertainment. Consider skipping or scaling back on things like favors, invitations, decorations, and a wedding planner. By being strategic with your budget, you can still have a beautiful and memorable wedding without breaking the bank.
