There are a lot of fun parts of planning a wedding, but most couples do not enjoy working out all of the details of their wedding budget. However, budgeting is a necessary part of planning. Although the process of setting a budget can be tedious, a budget is actually freeing. It allows you to know exactly how much you have to spend. Once you have determined the amount, you and your partner can work together to determine how you want to spend your funds.

No matter what society says, you should spend the bulk of your money on the areas that are important to you. If you have always dreamed of having wedding fireworks, you can choose a cheaper wedding dress to free up some funds. If food is important to you, add shrimp and lobster to the wedding menu while settling for artificial flowers instead of pricey live flowers.
