Breaking Down the Budget

-by Lisa

I wanted to give you an idea of how you can use your money to put on a very elegant event at any budget. In each budget, I have budgeted for 150 guests. As you know, each couple has their priorities, which you can account for in your own budgets. To give you a guide, generally, the reception portion will take up about 50% of your budget. I include food, table chairs, service, site fees, tent, etc. As you can see, you can plan a very nice wedding on a 5K budget, but you have to be realistic with what you will get. Sample budgets are below. Click on them to make them larger.

Budget: $5,000

Budget: $30,000

Budget: $75,000

Wow! Thanks so much! This was very helpful, and it's good to know that there are ways to make a wedding work at any budget! Especially in today's economy!

Thanks for this...though it would also be cool to see a budget breakdown for a wedding in between the $5,000 and $30,000 ($15-20,000).
