Tips for Strategically Paying for Your Dream Wedding
#1 Formulate a Budget.
This is self-explanatory but completely necessary. When planning a wedding, always make sure to plan ahead for how much you will be spending for the wedding and any events that come with it.
#2 Get Help.
Have a sit down with some of your close family members, parents, maybe even close family friends, and explain how important this wedding is to you. Elaborate on how memorable and beautiful the wedding will be with them helping out financially. You might even be surprised at how many family members would love to help!
#3 Save Up!
Once you have your budget in place you need to start planning on how you will work towards your financial goal. Start by saving as soon as you possibly can, and figure out how much you both need to be stored away in savings each month. Try finding a side hustle of some sort to help push you forward towards your goal!
#4 Use Credit Cards Wisely.
First and foremost, do not spend more than you think you can afford. It’s not a good idea to start your wedding in debt. When using credit cards, think about how long it’s going to take you to pay off that debt. Try your absolute hardest to pay off a good amount each month to avoid any possible interest payments the company will charge you.
