Your financial well-being is of utmost importance, especially when you are thinking to plan your wedding in this economic atmosphere. Due to the ever increasing prices of goods and commodities, there are several steps and considerations couples can share before they tie the knots. Here’s how to plan a wedding in 2022 without having to empty your pocket-
You will need to talk through your most important checklist items on your wedding day. Is it photography, food, the decorations, or music? Identify the biggest items where you’re willing to splurge. Know what is important to you and make sure you prioritise it. You may be in situations where you will have to choose between having a particular product over another. Having a clear mind as to what is important to you will help you make better decisions.
It’s important in this market for couples to understand the reason behind the quotes they’ve received for wedding day expenses. One way to do that is to keep up with ongoing interest rate fluctuations, as well as the cost of living expenses that continue to rise against the dollar. Another way to do this is simply by asking your vendors what costs go into the services rendered.
Communication matters and so does hiring the right wedding team to execute your big day. Believe your vendors. They are there to guide you through this process. Also it is important to hire vendors you trust. Don’t hire anyone you are doubtful or skeptical about.
Couples should also understand that most wedding businesses are small businesses. Your wedding day is for most of them their only source of income. Most wedding vendors really want to make your big day come to life, and give you exactly what you want. Vendors feel the frustration and annoyance of supply chain issues just as much as their couples.
Another very important thing is to be considerate of your wedding party and family members. We get the social media allure of throwing dreamy prewedding events—so if you want to throw that kind of party, be very clear about financial expectations and the amount required for booking tickets. If this is beyond their budget range, perhaps it’s time to reconsider your priorities or to open up your wallet to partake in the experience. Do not let your wedding be a financial burden for your friends and loved ones.
The best way to cope with the extra expenditure, make a proper list of the people you wish to invite. If the guest list is limited , you sure will be able to cut down a lot on the costs to the maximum extent.
