What is the IMPORTANCE OF WEDDING BUDGETS?
Before planning an event it is very important to discuss about the budget that we are going to spend on that event or wedding event.
I have been working on a really spectacular event. It is one of the more expensive ones in my career. But even with all the money they are spending, they are stressing out over the event budget.
I should go back a bit on this story. I was hired on this event after several of the most expensive vendors had been hired. Actually the client brought me into the event with the hopes that I could help reduce her expenditures. I told her I couldn’t promise that, and I certainly couldn’t alter the contracts she had already signed, but I agreed to do the best I could.
Six months later, we are struggling to trim and tighten the budget. It is nearly impossible. In fact, the only significant cut we could make is to reduce the number of guests.
Why am I sharing this unfortunate story? Well, its because I want to emphasize how important it is to do a budget FIRST! Whether you are spending Rs.10,000.00 or Rs10,00,000.00 you have to know what your priorities are when it comes to spending money.
Planning a wedding is a marriage of creativity and good business sense. You must know how to take the money you have and shift it around to hire the best vendors for your wedding day.
Do a favour to your parents and yourself , plan a detailed wedding budget and stick to it!
