How Much Does A Wedding Cost
“How much does a wedding cost” is searched on Google over 50 times a day and that’s just in the United States. Do you know how badly I wish I could give you an answer? There’s too many variables in the equation that drive the cost way up or way down. My job is to help you get it just right.
If you came here looking for a number, the average cost of a wedding last year rang in around $25,000. Your total cost will depend on things like location, time of year, number of guests, and type of service. The great news is there are talented vendors to fit every budget so try your best not to worry. The grand total may look scary, but you always have the ability to trim the budget as needed. (If you’re looking to save on alcohol at the reception, I shared one of my best kept secrets here!)
My number one tip when you’re forming your budget, is to think about what’s important. Let me rephrase that. Think about what’s important to you. When you prioritize your wedding budget, make sure the priorities are truly yours and no one else’s. If roses in every corner is what your mother loves, but you’re personally feeling indifferent about that many flowers, it’s time to be honest with yourself. Flowers are expensive and you can easily borrow some of the allotted flower budget and put it toward something you really love, like booking your favorite band for an extra hour.
I know it’s stressful to think about your total cost, but you’re in control if you’re willing to be flexible. Priorities are key, and everything else comes second when you’re balancing resources.
