When you get the ring, and tell the folks and change the Facebook Status, Now what?
When it comes to wedding planning the most important step is setting your budget. Of course this step is not as fun as choosing a venue or as glamorous as choosing the dress. However if you do not set a budget very early on in your process it can really complicate things later on.
Choosing the venue or caterer before setting a budget may really hinder the choices you have later and also may contribute to going way over budget.
Now I ask, do you know how much the average wedding in Omaha costs?
Down load this now! http://www.costofwedding.com/ Please remember this is average cost, also notice the breakdown it gives based on number of guests. Do not expect all your wedding professionals to fit exactly into these estimates. It is however a great resource to help you think about your budget and how much you are willing to spend on certain wedding items.
The most important thing you can do to avoid disappointment and sticker shock is educate yourself. If you find that setting a budget and sticking to it will be difficult for you perhaps you can hire someone to help. As a Planner I offer help to set a realistic budget and help you find the vendors that will fit in to your budget. If you want to avoid all the stress of finding vendors and negotiating pricing I recommend hiring a planner to help. The cost of your planner may very possibly be off set by their knowledge and expertise.
I’d love to meet with you, I want you to have your wedding vision!
