Make A Budget

The very first order of business in planning a wedding is developing a budget.  Before visions of tulle draped pews, and candelabras on the dais table get too out of hand, youíll need to establish just how much you can actually afford to spend on the wedding.  Below is a very basic sample budget to give you an idea of the costs youíll need to consider and address.  Donít forget about pre-wedding festivities such as Engagement Party, Bridesmaid Luncheon, and other weekend wedding parties.
