What To Do If Your Wedding Goes Over Budget

 Your wedding budget is the foundation of your wedding. It is very important to have one but sticking to it is another thing. It can be so easy to stray from your budget because small things add up quite quickly. Perhaps things that you didn't even think to account for may even pop up. A lot of couples go over their wedding budget so there is no need to feel bad about it. However there are some ways to bring it back down. We are here to give you some tips on trimming your spending and help you stick to your budget. Let's get started. 

1. Take A Second Look

If you find that you are going way over budget it's time to take a second look at what you're spending on. With so many costs that go into wedding planning taking a second look at your spendings will help you determine what you can possibly cut back on. This is why it's important to look at things like cancellation fees from vendors. If there are any refunds available. You can also try and make small changes to what you already have booked. For example you can ask for a smaller cake. Even try to switch to more affordable packaging for some items. All of this will make a difference in the overall cost. 

2. Try To Avoid Surprises

When booking your vendors it's very important to look for any hidden fees. Like mentioned above sometimes there are cancellation fees and fees for any time that not accounted for. All of these things are important to note. They can be easy to miss but will be very visible when it comes down to the overall cost. 

3. Plan for An Emergency 

Yes it's important to stick to your budget but you can also take to account any extra money that might need to be spent. So having a small amount extra planned for can take care of things incase there are any accidents. Perhaps you need to pay for some transportation for your guests. Or you now have to get a tent because of the whether. Having that little extra to spend can help you out. 

4. After Wedding 

If you're trying to get back some of the money spent on the wedding there might be some things you can sell from it. If you know you don't mind not have your wedding dress you can sell it online or to a second hand shop. Any furniture that was purchased can also be resold to try and get back some of that money spent. 

We hope these tips will help you plan for your special day. Just make sure you are spending money on things that mean the most to you.
