All wedding budgets are not the same. They are affected by factors like the number of guests coming and the taste of the couple involved. So how much will mine cost, you ask? Well first, you need to have the answers to the following questions:
- Where are you getting married?
- What is your wedding date? Will you consider another day of the week?
- How many guests are you inviting?
- What's your take on flowers? Do you love, like, or dislike flowers?
- How important is food...excellent food?
- What do you want your guests to remember of your event when they leave?
Once you answer these questions, then we can say it will cost between $A, and $Z, and here is why:
- Your Location Matters
Locations that give all-inclusive wedding packages are bound to be cheaper than your average wedding venues. If you can find a location to host both your ceremony and reception, you should take it. That way you can cut the transportation costs involved in shuttling guests from your wedding ceremony to your reception.
Your Wedding Day Does Too
Saturdays are peak wedding day; you'll probably spend more to reserve your venue, caterer, and other essential vendors for your wedding on a Saturday. Switching to a Friday has been proven to reduce costs significantly, and if it's in the offseason, you'll be able to save even more and reduce further costs.
- Fewer Guests Mean Less Money
The average wedding cost per person is about $80. If you take ten people off your guest list, that's a whopping $800 saved. The number of people at your wedding has a direct effect on your wedding budget.
- Flowers Are Costly
You can avoid this by going for only local flowers that are in season and working with a local florist who knows what they're doing. Using more greenery at your wedding will also lower your costs. You can also ask if your florist works by the hours too.
- A Good Caterer Is Also Costly
Lots of studies have proven that the majority of wedding guests go there for the food. If you want to please your guests, you have to spend on good for your wedding. The best weddings also have different options for those with dietary restrictions or allergies. The downside is that you could end up paying higher for your wedding food.
