Your wedding budget is of the utmost importance. Sure, this is a once in a lifetime kind of event – and sure, you want it to be splendid from all points of view. Does this mean you have to get into long-term financial trouble, though?

Of course it doesn’t – and this is precisely why you need to be ultra-careful with some of the most common wedding budget blunders. Read on and find out more about this.

  • Not reading all the fine print. Your vendor contracts are crucial – and yes, you really need to read them. Otherwise, you might end up paying extra for things you were completely unprepared for. Better be informed from the very beginning and know exactly what you are signing and how much each service will cost you!
  • Doing things just because “that’s how they should be done”. Regardless of how traditional or unconventional your wedding may be, etiquette will still play a part. Still, that doesn’t mean you have to fall into the trap of doing everything just because tradition dictates it. Do things your own way, stick to your budget, and your wedding will be really amazing – we promise!
  • Allowing everyone to pressure you into paying for things you cannot afford. From giving everyone the chance to come with a plus-one (even if they are not in a serious relationship) to allowing your groomsmen decide on an open bar in your place, there are a lot of ways to fall into peer pressure when planning a wedding. Truth be told, this is one of the worst financial mistakes you can make.
