Make yourself aware of these wedding budget blunders

If you are like most couples getting married, you want to make sure you don’t go over your budget. After all, the last thing you want to drag with you on your honeymoon are money issues, right?

What are some of the most common wedding budget blunders to avoid, though? We have some tips for you – so read on and find out more.


·        Not prioritizing budget-related issues. The number one most common (and probably one of the top most harmful) mistakes to make is not prioritizing your budget issues. Sit down with your fiancé and discuss the things that are most important to you and how to make sure you stick with your budget without compromising on those things that matter.

·        Allowing peer pressure to dictate wedding choices. An open bar, plus-one invitations for everyone, a luxury wedding dress, more guests – peer-pressure is a real struggle for brides planning their wedding. Our advice? Stay strong and keep calm – explain (as many times as needed) that this is your wedding and you want to make your own decisions.

·        Not reading all the fine print on your contracts. That small writing at the bottom of your vendor contracts? Probably the most important information on the page. Be sure you know exactly what you sign up for, so that you don’t face unexpected issues on your actual wedding day. Better safe than sorry, right?

·        Doing all those “shoulds”. Want to know a secret? There’s nothing you have to or should do at your wedding – there are only common sense etiquette rules that are great when followed, and outdated traditions and rules you can absolutely ignore.
