Wedding Tips | Plan Your Wedding Budget First

Anyone who has gone through wedding planning will tell you just how important finding and sticking to a budget is. Your wedding budget will determine every decision you will make when it comes to your wedding day. Where will you get married? Your budget will help determine that. What kind of florist should you hire? Your wedding budget will also help you navigate that! Not only should you sit down and figure out your entire wedding budget, but each newly engaged couple should also decide how much to spend for each category.
Categorizing your wedding budgets will help you stay on budget and hire the right vendors. Nothing is worst than finding your dream wedding vendor, only to find that you actually can’t afford them. By having a budget in mind as you look for your wedding vendors will allow you to weed out the ones that don’t fit your style or are out of budget.
To give us some insight on this topic I’ve asked an expert to come in. Maura from Maura Bassman Wedding and Design is a wedding planner in the Cincinnati area who is the perfect expert when it comes to all things weddings.
“PLAN YOUR BUDGET FIRST!  The first thing I tell my couples to do is to figure out a wedding budget – an overall amount that they are able to spend on their wedding.  This may involve some awkward conversations with parents but it’s better to have these early, rather than later, in the planning process.  Once a number has been established, then I suggest creating a detailed wedding budget which should include everything that goes into planning a wedding – from the venue to the florals to the wedding shoes and dress alterations. If you hire a planner, we can assist with this to make sure you don’t miss anything ;).  From here, the planning can begin and you can move forward with confidence knowing how much you have to spend for each vendor category!”

Highly recommend Roots Floral Design - absolutely beautiful!

“Kaytee is an absolute GEM! She has so much passion and care for what she does, that you feel like she's a friend more than a vendor. She walks you through each step of the floral process with organization, examples, cost, and detail -- all things that make my detail-oriented heart happy. The end result far exceeded anything we could have hoped for or imagined. ALL. THE. GREENERY. Future brides, run, don't walk to Roots for your wedding. From start to finish, she took care of every single floral need to make our day positively beautiful.”

-Laura, Summer 2019 Wedding


"Kaytee became so much more than a vendor for us. The first time I met her I felt as though I met a long lost friend. She was the very first vendor I chose for the wedding (even before the venue) and she lived up to all my expectations and went above and beyond.  Each time I met with her I felt confident that she completely comprehended my wants and would fashion them into something that looks put together, yet natural. The day-of she silently transformed a bland rustic space into an enchanting, romantic barn. I couldn't have asked for anything more beautiful or unique."

-Grace, Spring 2019 Wedding


"Kaytee was so great to work with!!! I provided her with some floral inspirations from Pinterest and Instagram but gave her a lot of free rein coming up with the flowers for our wedding and she went above and beyond expectations. Our photographer was obsessed with all the bouquets and we got so many great pictures of them! She did such a good job making my smaller budget work to make high impact arrangements. She's also the sweetest person to be around!"

-Bo, Spring 2019 Wedding
