When I got engaged back in September, I couldnít wait to start looking through bridal magazines and start planning the details of my special day. I am not oblivious to the cost of having a wedding, but I certainly did not want to spend a high amount either. According to Reuters Online, the average cost of a U.S. wedding in 2012 is $27,021. Thatís quite a dent in your wallet or your parentís wallet. In the beginning of the planning stage, itís crucial to at least set a budget. Everyone needs a starting point. A free online tool that I like to use for my budget is The Wedding Wireís Budget Tracker. Itís a great resource to estimate costs, track your spending, set up payments, and it provides lots of visual graphs.
To help you save a few dollars, Iíd like to share with you some of the ways that I found to be helpful and effective with the planning.
So, there are many ways you can trim your wedding costs without losing the fun factor. Be smart and realistic on what you can do. Your bank account will be thanking you in the long run!
