Know where you’re going to be getting your wedding fund from.
It may just be you and your fiancé who will split the total cost of your wedding. Or it could also be that your parents or relatives would want to help with some parts of the celebration. Whatever your situation is, the first thing you should figure out is who will be contributing and shouldering the costs. By doing this, you will be able to calculate your overall budget.
Remember that it is only a one-day celebration. You should not go into debt just to make your wedding official.
If you want the best possible start at marriage, do not start your union with unmanageable debt. Keep in mind that if you can not afford it, you do not need it. What’s important is that you celebrate your wedding and share the joy with your loved ones. It is not about how much money you spend, but the joy you feel on the day itself! There is nothing left for you to worry about except fully immersing yourself in your wedding ceremony.
