The ‘average wedding budget’ is a myth. Every wedding is different, and allocating your budget should never come down to a standard formula from a magazine or wedding planning book. Today’s advice from Revelry Events is some of the best I’ve heard: for example, have you allocated a 5% contingency for emergencies? Watch the film to find out why you should!
London wedding planners Susannah and Holly have more great advice: choosing seasonal flowers and foods will save you money, and doubling up your favours as place names, or your church flowers as reception decor will cut back on spending too. My favourite tip has to be asking suppliers for help: be honest, and if you have your heart set on something you can’t quite afford try asking your suppliers for solutions rather than a straight up discount.
