Welcome to week 2 of our Engaged to Planning series. This week we will break down the most helpful tips for starting your wedding budget and getting on track financially! Money can become a big boundary in your wedding planning. Before you begin booking vendors and spending money it is so important to have a realistic plan and budget. With a realistic budget, you avoid unnecessary overspending.
Many banks allow you to create multiple savings accounts or accounts focused on goals, like a wedding. By having a separate saving you can get excited about saving money throughout your engagement and having a realistic idea on spending. When your wedding money mixes with your personal savings, you can set yourself up for more stress in the long run by not knowing what is what?

There a million different documents out there to track your wedding budget. Some are free and some cost money. However, if the document doesn’t allow you to estimate the total cost before spending and then track the amount of money left in your budget when you start spending, is it worth it? Knowing throughout the process how much money you have left is so vital to staying on track. That is why you want a document that will actually help support you.
Here at Peace & Pine Events. We provide our clients with a document that tracks spending and does all the calculating work for you. So all you have to do is type in some numbers and focus on your vision.
I can’t promise that everything that you prebudget for will be exactly that amount or under. That’s a part of why we create budget percentages. As you get halfway through your budget you may need to adjust the remaining items and their projected costs to allow for on target budgeting.
