DO NOT DIY! Contrary to popular belief this in NOT a cheaper option to take when you are organizing the your wedding day. There are so many fantastic wedding vendors out there and they exist because they are good at what they do and have lots of experience with various of venues and suppliers.

THERE WILL BE LAST MINUTE CASH BLOW OUTS so prepare for this early on and put aside a portion of your budget to cover the last minute costs. Putting aside this contingency fund will ensure you don’t go over your intended budget.
PUT TOGETHER A BUDGET – Sit down and make up an excel spreadsheet. Ask your friends who have been married before how much you can expect to pay for certain services and be realistic when you are budgeting your wedding. It will not cost $150 for a wedding cake.
BE HONEST WITH YOUR SUPPLIERS. Tell them up front how much you have to spend on this service, this is very helpful to a supplier and allows them to be honest with you, suggesting ways they can best meet your needs for the budget you have allocated.
