We get it. Google, Pinterest, wedding blogs– and even friends who’ve tied the knot before you—all become your go-to sources for the question that many couples ask.
And when you think you’ve reached a consensus on the “golden” number, you start thinking about whether it’s even a realistic budget. Don’t get us wrong—if it’s obtainable, then go for it. As a matter of fact, you can just stop right here and let SDS take care of the rest. But if what’s considered average costs for weddings create unimaginable stress levels for you and your significant other, keep reading.
Weddings are not about spending the least amount of money or the most amount of money. They are about spending money on the most important elements to you and your partner.
With that said, think about what’s important to you as a couple. Food? Photography? The venue? Signature cocktails at the open bar? Once you’ve decided on your top 5, then you can start looking at average pricing from
quality vendors. Most offer “starting at” information on their sites. Once you’ve done that, give yourself a ballpark number to work in pricing for the less important elements. And you don’t have to do this alone. We’ll help you find the best vendors to fit your budget, and even help you choose which elements make for a more memorable day. That’s what we’re here for!
