Event Budgeting Tips
As many couples will testify, the word wedding often corresponds with an amazing blowout of costs and heavily inflated prices. Ideally, most people would love to have a wedding where money is no object, but the reality for most of us is that careful budgeting and planning is essential to avoid paying exorbitant sums.
The good news is that there are several ways to reduce the likelihood of wedding costs blowing out completely. Here we give an overview of seven of these:
1: Hire a marquee
The popularity of marquees is definitely growing and marquee hire is easier than you may think. Many couples are opting for marquees as the venue for their wedding reception (and sometimes ceremonies) because they can be positioned in many beautiful and original locations and presented, decorated and arranged in ways that impress guests and parallel the couple’s desire for their special celebration. Hire of a marquee can also offer excellent value for money.
Although you may have some wonderful ideas for your next event, including creative and innovative ways to make it unique and memorable, the budget that underpins the event needs to control the decisions that you make. Experienced event and party planners know that there is usually no sense in blowing a budget – the arrangements for an event need to be made within the confines of the funds that are available.
