Just Engaged and Proposals

Newly engaged!

Never planned a wedding before and it's really overwhelming! What is a typical budget? How much do you put towards a venue and food vs photography and music?? The photography is important to me, but I don't know of anyone and there are too many vendors to choose from. Help!!


Re: Newly engaged!

  • Your budget has to be what you can afford. No one here can tell you what to spend. Congratulations!!!

    Budget: Do you have any wedding savings now? How long of an engagement are you thinking? How much can you save each month during your engagement?

    Big picture: you & your FI need to sit down and get a big picture together (beach wedding, church wedding, backyard wedding, black tie, small vs. big). Tell each other your three must haves/ important items (big guest list, great food, etc.) Why?

    Go from there.

    Edit: Plusalso the knot was a budget tool (to give you an idea how to divide your budget)
