As a once-in-a-lifetime event (unlike regular birthdays), people have the natural tendency to splurge on a wedding – true even for love birds in Durham. Keeping your footing financially sound then for your wedding can be a challenge. But, it will sure set you to a good start.
Much better, you could actually save ahead for your “big day”. Below are simple steps to set you in that direction.
First, you need to come up with a specific amount. Decide ahead on what kind of wedding would you want. Would it be a garden wedding? Beach?Barn? Needless, to say your decision will affect your budget.
Know Your Finances
Next, you need to be agree on how much each of you as the future couple are willing to allocate. This, with reference to your target budget, will let you know how near – which is usually far – are you from your dream wedding.
Find Alternative Sources
Seek each of your parents. Though they are not obliged to dole out, many weddings have been blessed with generous parents. To this end, getting them to sponsor a portion of your expense could make matters simpler. For instance, say 10 guests or the wine part.
Come Up with a Schedule
Now that everything has been laid on the table, factoring how much you are going to save on a regular basis should be easy. In this regard, opening a joint account may be advisable. It does not only give you easy tracking, it helps you to keep you on track by giving you a means to focus upon.
If your wedding is fast approaching, doing a monthly saving routine may fall short financially. Adjust your dues to twice a month or weekly as the case maybe.
There is wisdom in saving: Sacrificing ahead is better than inheriting a heap of financial obligations after the wedding. Truly this is actually wise as many marriages have been destroyed by poor finances.
