Getting married should be one of the most important days of your life. Waking up that morning shouldn’t make you feel stressed. However, in most cases that isn’t the case. Weddings can break the bank leaving the lucky couple out in trouble with their finances. Thankfully, Lucky Little Wedding Chapel will show you how to plan a wedding on a budget.
Determining Your Budget
First things first, in order to make your wedding day perfect you need to understand your budget. That doesn’t mean you can’t have a nice wedding it just means you want to do everything right within your means. The average wedding costs nearly $34,000. So, you need to understand that everything will have a cost to it. Things like invitations, wedding dresses, tuxedos, food, bouquet halls, etc. all add up. That’s why before you say your ‘I Do’s’ make sure to have a real and honest conversation with your significant other. Ask those uncomfortable questions to get it out in the open so that both of you are on the same page.
Limiting The Number Of Invitations
Once a budget is determined the next thing you need to know is the number of invitations. Do you want to have a large wedding or a small intimate wedding? There isn’t a wrong answer it all just depends on what you’re most comfortable with and what your budget allows. Note, whomever you didn’t invite should be notified. Some might take it personally that they weren’t invited to your wedding. Like your budget, make sure to invite anyone you feel most comfortable with to be at your wedding.
Hosting The Wedding & Reception
Where do you see yourself hosting your wedding? Do you plan on having it at a huge banquet hall, at home or at a small chapel? All of these play a huge factor in your wedding. Again, keep in mind what you’re most comfortable with and what your budget allows. We recommend that you host it in an enjoyable space for you and your guests. It’s better to have enough space where everyone can see and hear what’s going on.
Food & Beverage
After you’ve figured out your budget, the number of invitations and where you’re hosting the wedding and reception, it’s time to figure out what’s for dinner. Do you want to have an open bar at your reception or have a few beer kegs? The national average cost of a beer keg costs about $100 – $200 dollars. The national average cost for an open bar is about $3,000 – $4,000. That’s a big difference in price point, so it all depends on your budget.
For food, it also depends on the number of guests. This is where it can get tricky for some. Of course, the higher amount of guests, the higher the price goes up. For small intimate weddings then consider a dinner at home or at a restaurant. For bigger weddings, then the national cost per plate at a wedding is about $60 – $100 dollars.
