Factors to consider when making a wedding budget

by Melissa W. Content Writer

A wedding ceremony is not the kind of event you will want to get into without considering its financial effects on your pocket. This is the reason why many experts will always advise you to first look at the weight of your pocket before you decide to announce that great day to your friends and relatives. Those who choose to ignore their financial strength when making the wedding plans have always ended up in disappointment. There are things that are worth consideration when making the budget. In this article, we shall look at some of the factors the influences the budget allocation in a wedding event.

Number of guests

The number of guests you have invited should be seriously considered when budgeting. Also, you need to have in mind that a wedding is a social function, thus there will always those people you never invited. All these need to be considered as they will determine the amount of food to purchase, the wedding venue, transport plans among many other things.

Wedding venue

Different venues have different prices. Depending on the style and look you desire for the wedding, the type of venue you settle on will obviously have an impact on the cost. Places such as beaches and mountain sides are generally considered to be more expensive. This is mostly because such venues require unique outfits for the event. If you settle on a beach for the event, you will have to contend with spending quite a lot of money on the men’s beach wedding attire.

Size of the bridesmaids and groomsmen

This is particularly important as they are always part of the event. Any mistake done on their part will automatically have an impact on the entire event. Their number should be considered as it will influence the transport arrangements, meals, attires among many other things. Remember that the attire they use should coordinate with that of the bride and bridegroom, thus their significance can never be ignored.

Social status of the guests

This is also an important thing to think about as it has a direct impact on the budget. If majority of the invites are well-off, then the budget might be low as things like transport will not be a major concern. Also, they can decide to contribute some money towards the event thus helping you in the entire planning.
