A wedding is a major financial undertaking and it is very important to begin the planning process with a budget. Being practical and realistic will be an advantage later so that there are no adjustments necessary to cope with a shortage of funds. I have put together a budget guideline worksheet for you. Some categories may not pertain to your event and I suggest adding that percentage to something you have deemed as a priority. You also may have additional expenses that are not listed. As you can see, a planner is in the budget from the beginning. Choosing to hire a planner at the beginning of your engagement can be the most cost effective item on your list. We are full of knowledge about other potential wedding vendors you are in need of hiring and we can research dates and availability and match vendors that fall within your budget parameters. Saving you TIME and MONEY.
A Wedding Checklist is also very important as you start your planning. It serves as an excellent reference for you and your planner. I am offering this checklist to you so that you can see how much work is involved in planning a wedding. As a wedding coordinator/consultant, I will keep you on track with your monthly items and be checking in regularly to see how things are progressing. There are also many items on here that I can do for you. Thus allowing you to relax and enjoy the process all the more!
