We know, we know. Although we want to be practical when it comes to planning and paying for a wedding, we can’t help but go over the top when we’re about to get married to the loves of our lives. While understandable, what’s not okay is going under a huge pile of debt because of your need to have the best Lakeland wedding photography team. There is nothing wrong with wanting the best, but you have to be prepared for it.
Even the most basic of photography services can look like they cost an arm and a leg if you don’t save up for it. So, if you and your partner are beginning to talk about getting married and somehow, you know there’s a proposal coming in the future, start to set aside money for your wedding budget.
Be more creative with your dinner dates
Are you and your partner fond of trying out new restaurants and eating out for dinner? Maybe you need to stop those for a while if you want to save money for your upcoming wedding. Be more creative with your dates. You can whip something up at home since trying new recipes together will be a good bonding moment for you as a couple.
Instead of going to the movie house, you can binge-watch TV series on Netflix. Not only are you going to save a good $50 to $70 per “dinner date,” but you’re also spending more intimate moments together when you stay at home.
Settle your existing debts
Do you have a huge credit card debt? Remember to settle these first and foremost. Try to schedule your wedding planning after a huge portion of your existing debt has already been paid. This gives you a bit of wiggle room to splurge on Lakeland wedding photography.
Besides, this is more reason why you should start having those dinner dates at home. Instead of adding up to your expenses, cut down on things that you don’t really need.
Stop those shopping sprees
Aren’t we all fond of shopping? It’s the ultimate mood booster and it actually helps keep off the stress of having to work and face personal issues. However, it puts a huge dent on your ability to save for your upcoming nuptials.
It also triggers the use of your credit cards, which you are trying to pay off. So although little purchases here and there are okay, stop those huge shopping sprees that put you in more debt.
