The Ultimate Guide to Budgeting for Your Wedding

At Southern Weddings, we have always been equally devoted to the practical AND the pretty. In this 26-page digital download, we equip you with everything you need to know to spend, save, and celebrate your wedding with money smarts. Topics covered include:

  • How to set your wedding budget
  • Ways to supplement your hired professionals (and save money!)
  • How to negotiate while hiring vendors
  • Our favorite ways to cut costs
  • Creative ways to stretch your budget
  • Setting your budget priorities
  • How to talk to your parents about money
  • When and how much to tip wedding vendors
  • Industry standard percentages for your budget
  • 11 line-item budgets from real weddings (ranging from $12,500 to $100,000+)

...plus a budget spreadsheet, a payment tracker, and plenty of encouragement along the way! We believe that if you can do your budget well, the rest of wedding planning will be so much more joyful - and that's our greatest wish for you! Our guide will help you get there.

The Southern Weddings E-Book Collection was created to give you accurate, practical, and inspiring advice as you plan your wedding. Each is designed to be used alongside the Joyful Wedding Planner (we go into more detail on topics than we were able to in our Planner) or in tandem with another planner. They also make great gifts for the sweet bride in your life!

Digital downloads will be available on your order confirmation screen, and delivered via email immediately after purchase.
