Here is a good article for Engaged Couples to read.
When planning a wedding many things will go on the future bride and grooms checklist. An important first step is setting a budget and then more importantly sticking to it. The problem is how to allocate the funds properly. Many couples will start out with finding the perfect dress and accessories. Then they may look for a tux. Do not forget about the bridesmaids and groomsmen attire. A great location is a must. It must be big enough and romantic enough to fit your whole party. What about a reception facility if it cannot be in the same location? The size and location of facilities are going to play a big role on their price.
Once you are set on locations you have to decorate. There are decorations and accessories of all kinds that come with price tags. Including tables, chairs, linens and more. One of the more expensive accessories are flowers. Having beautiful floral arrangements can really enhance the ambiance of the location. Another cost comes from the catering. Do you have a full meal or light snack. What about appetizers during the reception? An extremely important accessory and necessity is the wedding cake. Having the perfect cake to fit your personality will make your moment special. Ok now that you have looked long and hard to make your event perfect, how are you going to remember it?
Dresses go in the closet, tuxes are returned, flowers die, food is eaten, decorations are thrown away, the cake is eaten and again how will you remember one of the most important days of your life? Through your photographs! To many couples forget to budget in a quality professional wedding photographer in the beginning before their budget is spent. I speak from experience because I waited till the end to find a photographer and I do not have a single photograph hanging in my home. My budget was gone and I had a friend of a friend take our pictures. Please learn from my mistake and do not forget about your photographer when you plan your event! Without photographs to preserve the memories everything else does not matter.
