If you are recently engaged, I am sure you are wondering how to start budgeting for the BIG DAY.
The standard budget is usually divided up by:
50% for the reception
10% for wedding attire( dress, tux)
10% for music
10% for photographer/videographer
10% for flowers
10% for all others (invitations, save the dates, wedding party gifts, etc.)
Now, do you follow the rules...Usually not at all, but it a good base.
Some brides will spend more on the music and then cut into their budget for flowers. Remember it is all up to YOU and you need to make it your SPECIAL DAY, so there is no wrong or right.
