When you are wedding planning it can be easy to get carried away! That’s why setting a budget from the beginning and sticking to it is the best thing to do. Sometimes trends pop up that are unexpected and you didn’t plan for, but you absolutely love and want to have at your wedding. This is why it’s always a good idea to set aside a contingency budget to account for things like this.
While you might be planning all the big items like the cost of the venue, the dress, the flowers, the wedding band, the photography, or the wedding rings; other things can pop up. You might be very taken for example with the idea of the 2-in-1 wedding dress, which does double-duty, taking a bride from the ceremony to the reception (a great way to save on buying two outfits).
Metallic palettes might catch your eye and you might want to add gold foil to your wedding invitations last minute, or you might want to set up a secondary bar called a ‘satellite bar’ at your reception with hand-picked cocktails for your guests.
