How to Plan Your Wedding on a Budget?

First Step in Your Wedding Planning

The first step in planning your wedding, you should figure out how much you want to spend, how many people you want to invite and what is it you want to say at your wedding. Thereafter, get a scrapbook or even a notebook and start compiling your ideas by cutting out pictures from magazines or books that interest you or sign up with pinterest.com for more ideas for planning great events.

Magazines and books are a great way to get inspiration! Our favorite magazines are Real Simple, and Philadelphia Magazine; and our favorite websites are www.trendhuntercom and www.coolhunter.com, which gives us great ideas. After a few pages in your portfolio or boards via Pinterest, you will start to see a pattern develop of colors, themes, and foods that you favor.
Second, figure out the day, time, and location for your wedding – weekdays are more affordable than weekends (see below). Then start a preliminary guest list and estimate guest count.

The number of guests will shape everything from budget to location. This may be an obvious point, but remember, the more guests, the more you have to put away in your budget. An increased guest count increases the costs for invitations, flowers, food, drink, venue, and etcetera. Use this as a guide 'The Five-year/ Five-minute rules 

Third, decide on the formality of your wedding. Would you prefer an evening affair or morning? Would you prefer an afternoon tea or the entire weekend? Think about these questions when deciding your wedding style; again, the time of day factors in how much you will spend on a venue.
In addition, if you are planning a wedding, then you need to think about registries. One great new idea is the Honeymoon Registry, where you can actually register for portions of your dream honeymoon trip!

Finally, if it is in your budget, hire an event/wedding planner as a consultant or for day-of service. Planning a wedding can be stressful and time-consuming! Therefore, to make sure your wedding is as successful as your hopes and dreams, hire a professional to plan and execute your plans to ensure success and eliminate stress!
