A Step-by-Step Approach to Budgeting Your Wedding
Making a plan for your Nashville wedding venue finances can be a Wedding in and of itself. It is an essential part of wedding planning, and planners know you’d rather skip ahead to the cake tasting. When deciding how much money you can spend and how much money you should save or splurge, some general guidelines can help.
Make sure you know who is contributing to this wedding
Maybe you and your fiancé are the only ones experiencing this. You may want to ask your parents or other relatives to help. An essential first step in determining how much money you’ll need for your big day is discovering who is willing to help. Set a budget for the Nashville wedding venue and discuss which aspects of the planning each party is ready to take on.
Assess the Information
Determine the amount of assistance you will receive and focus on your part of the project’s budget. How much money can you and your fiancé realistically—and comfortably—spend on your wedding? How much can each of you realistically save between now and the wedding? Any money you have in savings account that you don’t need? Following the questions above, determine your wedding budget.
Estimate how many people will be attending your event.
There is a direct correlation between the cost of a wedding and the number of guests attending. The size of your venue, as well as the amount of food and alcohol you will need to serve, will be determined by the number of guests (which, by the way, happen to be two of the most significant wedding expenses). It’s easier to understand your wedding expenses if you think of them in terms of “per person” costs. The best way to begin saving money on your Nashville wedding venue is by limiting the number of guests you invite.
