While knowing your overall budget for your wedding may be easy, sometimes figuring out how much of that money should be spent on certain things can be a bit more of question mark. This is likely the first large event you’ve planned so starting with how much of the budget is allocated for each category is a great starting point. While all of these percentages are based on national averages, it’s important that you make it YOUR dream day so adjusting amounts based on your priorities is a must. For example, if having an impressive live band is more important to you than the floral arrangements, adjust accordingly. Remember, this day is supposed to reflect you and your soon-to-be spouse and the things that matter the most to you as a couple!
