Let’s create a flawless wedding budget for you, without sacrificing the fun stuff and without missing out on your favorites. Everything here is about organizing things and interacting with the best, these will steer you through the most authentic wedding budget.

Estimating a wedding budget can be stressful initially but taking charge responsibly can make it an easy task. Whether it’s an extravagant hotel or an intimate garden affair, answering the following key questions will assist you in determining how much exactly to spend, to make it special and to make it yours.

  1. Who’s funding for the wedlock?

The conversation is important, consult with your parents about who will contribute to what. Expense distribution in India is mostly a parental affair and in some cases, nowadays people like to spend themselves on their weddings.

So, how should we broach this question? For almost everyone, communicating differently with the bride’s and the groom’s family is the key to have an extensive and fruitful discussion. We have some guidelines to assist you and your relatives prepare an initial draft of the budget:

  • Let both sides of parents commit to the same amount for the common functions and then add up all the contributions to create your budget. 
  • Alternatively, you can also ask each set of origins to fund a selective phase of wedlock (such as the ceremony, honeymoon or catering).
  • You and your partner can conclude on your contributions.
  1. How costly do you need your wedding to be?

Exactly like purchasing shoes, a home or a set of jeans, we determine our budget, when it appears to finance a wedding, you must pre-determine your budget, only a bit smartly and immensely. All of this entirely depends on your personal choice, preferences, and needs. You will have to prioritize what to preserve and what to splurge on 

 You can then set your expectations, accordingly.

 Let’s show you some stats, for a general idea of how duos usually allocate their money. Though, remember, everything depends on how you want it. 

A basic categorization of whatever you can anticipate paying:

  • Gathering: 48%–50%
  • Function: 2%–3%
  • Dresses: 8%–10%
  • Herbs: 8%–10%
  • Performances/Music: 8%–10%
  • Snap shooting/Videography: 10%–12%
  • Paperwork: 2%–3%
  • Wedlock Rings: 2%–3%
  • Parking/Transport: 2%–3%
  • Presents: 2%–3%
  • Others: 8%
  • Keep 5% of your budget for emergencies.
  • A honeymoon can be your other priority, in case you are paying for it.
  1. How much can you save?

Start saving money or at least keep aside some amount of your income for the wedding, as soon as you are engaged. Keeping apart at least 20-30% of your cyclical income should be sufficient, again depends on your likings. The longer you are engaged, the more you’ll have time to wait.

Directions to save: Restrict your spending on petite material (rent films rather going to the cinema; switch from a twice-a-day coffee run to once—or you can even make your beverage at home; hit the tracks for a jog or bike spin instead of taking costly workout sessions at the gym). These small but effective differences will barely change your essence of life, but following this for a year, the excess funds will help you overcome some wedlock essentials. 

Get the most utmost of your salary: Rather than stashing your money to a less-interest savings account, you can envision opening a money market account. Your interest rate can be just double with that of a savings account. Don’t forget a clear print to avoid penalties.
