So you want a great wedding, right? Just about everyone wants their wedding to be “great” (or good or nice or awesome). But what defines “great”? It’s different for everyone. Some brides and grooms may want amazing food, some want their guests to dance the night away. Some want it to feel like a nightclub with lighting and lounge furniture, some want it to be totally DIY and laid back. But you need to define what fulfills “great” for you and your fiance.
In defining your “great” wedding, look at these things first:
– Priorities: Prioritize what means the most to you for your wedding. Know what’s the most important to you for your wedding. Take that, and alter your budget. Want your wedding to be like a nightclub? Lower your budget for your venue, and raise your budget for decor.
– Budget: Know you budget, be conscious of it, and don’t blow your budget on something that isn’t important to you. Your mom wants the venue that’s the most expensive in town because all her friends’ daughters got married there? But you could care less, and actually despise it a little bit? She’ll get over it. You can’t have a “great” wedding if you blow your budget on one thing. It just can’t happen.
I did have a lot more written, but I don’t want to bore you all by repeating myself over and over from past Thursday Tips posts. :) Basically, when it all comes to down to it, just don’t blow your budget in one place! So how can you have a great wedding?
Define your GREAT, KNOW your priorities, KNOW your budget and don’t BLOW it all in one place!
