Breaking Down Your Budget
One of the biggest mistakes you can make when planning your wedding is booking vendors before breaking down your budget. Before you jump into what you want, you need to prioritize what you can actually afford to avoid disappointment. You will find that floral, paper, and rentals dominate your design budget, so be sure to find the magic number for each of these three areas. Once you have the budget set, you can present to vendors (along with your perfected mood board) to make collecting proposals and quotes a snap.
TIP: Be sure to work with your vendors to make your vision work within your budget. Remember that your vendors are experts at what they do and may have alternative ideas for an even more gorgeous outcome.
