Wedding Planning Tools

Whatever you may think, it’s not how much money you have to spend on a wedding that that counts, it’s how well you spend the money at your disposal.


Unless you allocate and budget for each element of the wedding, then regardless of whether you have five or fifty thousand pounds to spend, the money will ultimately run out before all purchases have been made.


Budget wedding planning may appear complex at first, especially if you've never been involved in anything like it before, but there are ways to simplfy the tasks that lie ahead. To help you out, we've laid out our 6 stage plan to effective budget wedding planningfollow them closely and you can’t go wrong:



Step 1: Prioritise

Knowing what priorities you have for the day and what aspects of it you want the most emphasis on is the first step to successful budget wedding planning. Set these priorities out early and stick to them.


Step 2: Know the Costs Involved

Unless you're a serial bride or groom who's been married many times before, then chances are that you don't have a clue how much a photographer will cost or whether a bunch of flowers will set you back more than a handful of invites. Get a grasp on how much things are likely to set you back before you go any further down the budget wedding planning path.


Step 3: Decide how you want to budget

There are a couple of options you have here - a 'money led' wedding budget or a 'wants led' wedding budget. Decide upon your preference early in the planning process.


Step 4: Know How Much Money you Have at Your Disposal

Having a clear grasp on your available cash pot is crucial. Look at all sources and try to get a clear understanding and firm figure from each before proceeding with your budget wedding planning.


Step 5: Set an appropriate Wedding Budget

Armed with all the facts and figures, it's time to set your wedding budget itself. Take your time and assess everything at hand before setting it in stone.


Step 6: Stick to your Wedding Budget

Easier said than done perhaps, but unless you do this then all your budget wedding planning will have been in vain.


Further, more in-depth, information is available on each of the above steps is contained within this part of the site, and a superb Wedding Budgeter planning tool that is free to access and simple to use is readily available to everyone who all members (it's free to register too!).


Budgetting can be tricky and daunting too, but if you plan ahead, set your stall out early and stick to your guns, it can be a piece of cake.
