The All Important Wedding Budget...!

When starting to plan your wedding, the NUMBER ONE item on your “To Do List” should be setting a budget! It determines basically everything…!! It will help you determine what venues are in budget, your price range for bridal gowns, how many guests you can afford to invite…. Pretty much everything a bride wants to plan first! If you don’t set your budget first and instead select your venue, you run the risk of spending way more than you planned! Once you have set your overall budget you can break it down by category (venue, food, bar, flowers, photographer, etc…). How much is too much? Let’s start by breaking it down by category:

Now let’s put this in perspective… According to The Wedding Report, an average Seattle wedding cost about $31,000. To make it easy let’s say $30,000. Giving you a budget breakdown that looks like this:

  • Reception: $12,300
  • Ceremony: $810
  • Bridal Apparel: $2,400
  • Groom’s Apparel: $180
  • Photographer: $2,100
  • Videographer: $1,500
  • Florist: $2,100
  • Music/Entertainment: $1,890
  • Stationery: $900
  • Accessories: $450
  • Gifts: $450
  • Transportation & Accommodations: $750
  • Hair & Makeup: $195
  • Coordinator & Insurance: $3,300

No one can understand your budget, advise you on the right vendors and help you stay within that budget like a wedding planner and coordinator! For advice on your wedding budget or local vendors contact me to setup a free consultation or a wedding planning preparation session, I’d be glad to help!
