Here at Occasions, we encourage brides not to spend more than they can afford. We offer these tips for staying within a formalized budget, once it has been determined.
Allow some money to any emergencies, expected or not. They will always show up.
Keep track of all expenses. If the gown goes over budget $400, you must cut costs elsewhere – $100 less on flowers, food and accessories, $50 less for invitation and party favors.
Learn to improvise. If your dream is a band, cut back a couple of hours. If your dream is to have the reception at a luxurious location, have it an hour when hor d’oeuvres rather than a sit-down dinner are sufficient.
Have an off-season wedding when things are less expensive. Keep it simple. Quiet elegance is always in style.
