Where do I start with my budget.. I have no idea ????
I think it really depends on how much you are happy to spend and how much you can afford the average for the UK is about 23,000 outs is budgeted at 8,500. I think k the important thing is deciding what a the most important things to you both.
What I did was I started looking up everything online to get an idea of how much they cost before deciding(so that o could where I wanted to spend .ore or less on something) and then started working on our budget. Ours is only £7000, but it's going well so far. Xx
We made a list of things in the order of priority to us & had a look for a rough price in our area as guidance. So far we haven’t gone over, without making a conscious decision too x
Think best to workout how much you can save each month . And what date you want to get married . So you can have some idea of how much you have to spend . X
It depends on what you can afford spare each month and for how long. We spent £1400 on our day x
Start with deciding what type of wedding you want and how many people you want to invite. Then start doing some research into how much that would cost. Once you have that number you can decide whether you are comfortable with it or where you are prepared to make sacrifices.
We saved for a year, managed to get a bit between us and have paid for big things straight away in full, dress suits rings registrar photographer and cars. The rest is pay as you and add up at the end. We are looking at about 8 thousand when we finish, probably less x
It depends on what you want we have spent 17000 x
Just decide what you can afford, don't pay attention to the average wedding costing £23,000... in my opinion that's a lode of rubbish. Weddings can cost as much or as little as you want it too. Once you have a budget in mind start looking at venues. Xx
We have booked our venue and now I will price up everything I want then prioritise what's important and what I can justify spending. Looking at around £15,000
I'd start by deciding what you can comfortably afford to save each month, bearing in mind the potential for needing to take a break for xmas ect. Once you know this, along with an idea of when you want to get married you'll know how much your likely to have available. This is what we did and it has helped when making decisions.
My advise would be to get a list of all the essentials and another list of the extras. The print out a list of the average costs then allocate how much you could afford against each item x
We Looked at different venues and seen what different places offered and for what price. We have got a bargain! We have the DJ, canapé champagne, 4 course meal, and a BBQ in the evening with the honeymoon room, table decorations, toast maker all for £5000. We could not believe it. Getting married mid week saved so much money.
