Budgeting and Prioritizing


Chances are, no matter what your wedding budget is, you are going to have to make choices.  Having a dream wedding isn’t about having everything you want; it is about valuing what is most important to you, and planning your wedding around those things.  Sit down as a couple and make a list about the top 5 most important things to you about your wedding day. And, no judging!  One of your lists may include, “All friends and family present,” while the other’s may say, “tasty cake.”  Once you have your priorities listed out, look at what you may have both included, or left out.  If both of you mention the importance of having everyone attend and great food, but not a thing is said about flowers, that can be one place that you minimize.
