It’s best to put together your budget before seeking out event planning companies and vendors. A good way to decide on a realistic budget for your wedding is to seek out advice from friends who already planned their own weddings and events. Let them know what you loved about their wedding and ask for their help in determining what certain things cost to figure out your budget.
Try not to let the wedding industry and event planning companies scare you too much! Look for friendly vendors, the kind of people you can see yourself working with during your planning process.
