Weddings are expensive, we all know that! The biggest question for your wedding planning budget is choosing whether to splurge or save. The answer? Both. Here’s why.



Wedding Planning Budget: Splurge or Save In Indianapolis

In most cases, weddings are the biggest day in someone’s life! You are vowing to be with that person forever. You can’t get more committed than that! Needless to say, you want this to be a special day! However, you do not need to splurge on every aspect of your wedding! There are so many ways to create a beautiful wedding on a budget!

Here are a few tips and tricks! 

First find out what is most important to you.

Is having the best food for your guests most important to you? Then by all means, splurge on that vendor! Allow yourself the satisfaction of knowing your guests will enjoy the food! If having the most energetic dance floor is important to you, hire a DJ that is going to create that for you! Catch my drift? Finding out what is most important to you is the best place to start.

Second, find ways to make your vision come to life!

Finding decor for your wedding can be challenging! Try looking at websites like Pinterest and the HGTV website. These sites offer incredible insight to the perfect DIY decor for your wedding! The idea of DIY may seem daunting to some but this will save you money, rather than having to pay someone to do it for you! Not only does DIY allow you to be creative, but it’s also unique to you! Think about it! No one is going to have the same decor as you! I think that’s pretty cool! 

When you are deciding on a venue, have a couple of questions in mind! 


  • Does this venue include tables and chairs? 
  • Will this venue provide linens? 
  • Does the venue offer catering service? 
  • What is the lighting like? Will I have to buy up lights to create the atmosphere I want? 


These are questions that can help you narrow down your search AND save you some money!

Third, enjoy the ride! 

Wedding planning can be stressful. Take time to enjoy every moment and create beautiful memories with friends and family! After all, we are celebrating!!
