Today on The Bride Link we are giving you some quick tips on how to stay on budget!

First and foremost, you're really gonna want to determine the type of wedding that you want to have. Where will it be held? What type of wedding will it be? How many guests do you think you want to invite? All of these are going to have a big impact on your budget. The next thing you're going to want to do is to get everyone involved in the planning or paying for the event in a group to discuss the details. You need to talk about the event specifics and discuss your budget together. Who’s ultimately responsible for any deposits for what? Who’s delivering what and at what time? Anyone picking up the day of? Should we use a professional planner or coordinator? This way you understand what your basic needs are and also what everybody will be contributing. This is a good opportunity for couples to highlight their priorities. If something's not important to you, there's no need to throw a whole bunch of money at it.

Make sure you and you and your fiance are clear about what's most important to you as individuals and you as a couple. It's important to know what reasonable prices are for things. Your budget should not only be affordable, but it should, more importantly, be realistic. If you're not really sure what things cost it's important that you have some time to do some research. Researching vendors is an important way to take your out an array of prices. This helps with not only finding an affordable vendor but also want a reputable one who offers a quality service. Do not just shop around on price alone! You want to make sure that you can get somebody that will offer the services that you need and that you'll be happy with at the end of the day. Don't just try to get the best deal. Make sure that you have a quality vendor when you're hiring them. If somebody is super cheap, it may be because they have subpar results and they might be cheap for a reason. Make sure you look at their past work and verify they have good experience.

Also, make sure to plan early! Give yourself time to shop around and make well-informed decisions. Give everyone that's paying for it a little bit of time to save before you ask for a payment. The more time notice that they have, the more money they can stow away without putting any financial stress on themselves. If you have time and the cash flow for it, you can hire a wedding planner that can help you with all of these things. If not, and you're acting as your own wedding planner, make sure that you're organized and informed when choosing your vendors.
