Know your budget and know your priorities 3.
Check your budget 4.
If your wedding is being held in a private home, ask your wedding planners for permission to have a reception at that location 5.
Set aside a budget for the venue and other special events Cate advises that you’ll be able to save money on special occasions.
“You can buy gifts for your friends and family, and then you can have an event like a wedding reception in the middle of the night.”
For example, if you’ve invited your friends over for a picnic or a BBQ, you can probably organise a reception for your guests at the same time.
You could also buy gifts and other decorations for your kids, and even arrange for your grandparents to attend a birthday party.
But you may not need to.
“If you don’t have to, don’t.
Just put your budget down for the date and time of the wedding, and set aside the money to buy those items.
If you have to spend money, it will be much easier to be frugal.”
Find the right venue for your event 5.
Choose the right day and time to organise your wedding You may have a different budget for a different date and you may want to consider changing your wedding to a different venue.
For example if you want to hold your wedding at a church or other religious site, you may have to consider what your wedding guests will need.
“Your wedding will have a lot more of a social element, so you want a venue that is accessible to all of the different groups you’re going to have guests from.
That means if you have an older crowd that’s coming in, you want it to be a place where people can sit down and talk.”
The best way to find a venue for a particular wedding is to look for a suitable venue online.
You can then ask your local wedding planner to look at the options and make a decision.
But when it comes to finding a venue, it’s important to take into account the time and space your event will take place.
If it’s not practical for you to get together in a place that has plenty of seating and lots of other people, you might consider renting a smaller venue, which will give you more room for people to congregate.
If this doesn’t work, you’ll want to find the best venue in your area, or find a local wedding photographer who can help.
Know the cost structure of your wedding 7.
Consider a special budget for catering A wedding catering guide from Vida Wedding Planning suggests you have a budget of around $600 to $800 for your catering, but this is based on your own budget.
This is a very small amount of money to spend, but if you do have a big event, it can save you money.

A more realistic budget is to have the catering budget for each guest at $2,500, with your money going towards your catering and any other special costs you may incur such as food and drinks.
