Since there are a ton of brides out there that are in the beginning stages of planning their weddings, we wanted to make sure we were helping our readers with their planning! We know most couples deal with being able to stick to a budget while still making the occasion fabulous. We know so many couples out there that are paying for their own weddings that it’s important nothing gets too over prices. 

There are a couple of things couples can remember as they are planning their nuptials that are critical in making their budget go far. Take a look!

Decide on a budget early. It’s important you know what you are working with before you start deciding on anything for your wedding. You want to make sure that you don’t start getting too excited about things that are ultimately out of your budget. Pick a number in the beginning and stick with it. 

What do you care about most. There are a few things in everyone’s weddings that are non-negotiables when it comes to tying the knot. However, they vary for each couple so you want to make sure you know what you need to have no matter what. Maybe it’s a certain venue you’ve always wanted to have or your favorite wedding band, either way make sure you know. 

Don’t forget about flowers. Flowers can add a very special touch to a wedding but they don’t need to be overly pricey. We always suggest customers use a local florist because they are much less expensive than using a big flower corporate power house. 

Pick a venue first. The venue and food for your guests is going to take up the majority of your budget. It’s always a good idea to pick that early on in the process so you know what’s left in your budget for everything else. Keep in mind, the smaller the guest list, the less expensive the wedding…which brings us to our next tip! 

Cut your guest list. Like we said, the smaller the wedding guest list, the farther your budget will go. Since the majority of your budget will go to feeding your guests and fitting them in your venue, cutting the guest list is an easier way to use your budget on other things. 

We hope our tips helped as you are thinking about the wedding you are planning. Remember, Nosegay D.C. is here to help with all of your flower needs! Reach out to us today at
