HOW TO PLAN YOUR WEDDING BUDGET The first and single most important step in planning a successful wedding is to understand the wedding numbers game. Most of us, if we’re honest, don’t have a detailed budget in place personally, let alone for our wedding. If you’re like most brides, your process will begin by announcing the grand news and then imagining your wedding day. You may run out to the bookstore to buy a few inspirational wedding magazines and books…eager to see what’s out there or hop on the computer to browse the latest wedding must-haves and vendors. The truth is that without a wedding budget in place and a solid understanding of your wedding numbers, you will end up in the over 50% of weddings that are well over what they anticipated paying for their big day. This class will help you understand the fundamental steps involved in planning your wedding budget. We’ll review key strategies to get the most out of your wedding budget and how to prepare a wedding budget of your own. You’ll learn to prioritize and organize your finances in a way that’s right for you so that you can be well on your way to booking your wedding day vendors! Even if you’ve already begun booking vendors, you’ll find this class indispensable since there are many tips to help you avoid pitfalls and save money along the way.
