It does not matter if you are as poor as a church mouse, or have some cash to spare. You certainly do not need a degree in accountancy, hospitality or diplomacy. What you do need is to stick to some simple rules.
So, what are they? First, you and your partner need to set an hour, maybe more, aside. During this time you need to establish, or set the ball rolling for establishing, rule number one:
1. SET AND AGREE UPON A BUDGET.
Yes, I have used the “B” word, but without carrying out this step, it will not be possible for you to proceed. It has to be done and I have, you will be relieved to learn, a formulae for you to achieve this. Click here for your formulae.
The next rule follows on from this.
2. TAKE CONTROL OF THE FINANCE AND KEEP WITHIN IT.
Everybody’s finances will vary. Some will have virtually no money at all and may foresee this as an ongoing situation. Others may decide, whilst they might not have the money now they will agree upon a savings plan. Then there are those whose parent(s) are able to provide either some, or all, of the funding for the wedding. Whatever the category you find yourself in, you still need to sit down with your partner and establish the rules, if only to have an informed discussion with the parent(s)! Then you can draw up your timetable, or use the one I have already prepared for you. Click here for your wedding timetable.
3. HAVE FUN AND TURN YOUR DREAMS INTO A REALITY.
Now for the fun part – making all your dreams come true. See my Wedding Planner Spreadsheet to help turn your dreams into a reality: wedding expenditure spreadsheet. Always keep a back up/hard copy. Also click onto the following link for: my organisational tips.
