Ultimately, you may end up overspending. Setting a budget beforehand and sticking to it is the only way out. Here is How To Create A Wedding Budget which can prevent you from overspending.

  • Discuss with family: Most likely it’s you and your better half who will be financing the entire wedding.

It is a good idea to discuss it with your partner and prepare a list of items that are a must-have for both of you. Then you can make some adjustments or alterations if necessary. For example, you may plan to do without that dream wedding dress and splurge on food instead and make your guests happy.
