Wedding Budget Breakdown

T

here’s no easy way around it — if you’re having a wedding, it can get expensive. Setting a budget is a great way to keep things within reasonable parameters, so you know what to expect. Once you’ve set an overall budget, though, how do you know how much to spend on what?   The most important thing to know when discussing money is to decide what’s most important to YOU. Is it the food you’re serving guests? Then expect to fork over a little more there, and save in other areas. Do you want a stellar photographer? Then put aside more money for that category, and save in another. It’s about deciding priorities — and adjusting from there. This breakdown gives you an idea of what categories typically take up in a budget. It can be adjusted, and isn’t wedding law for every couple. It is a starting point, and will give you an idea of how things break down, though.   After all, how can you expect to know what the typical floral arrangement costs, or what a good price for a three tiered cake is, if you’ve never been married before? So, we’re working out how much of your overall budget should go to each category. Then, just take your total budget and break it down! • Reception (40-45%)

  By far your largest expense. The reception includes food and beverages, equipment rentals, the venue fee (which may be coupled with your ceremony fee if you’re getting married in the same place), and non-floral decor. The exact cost will vary based on what kind of food you serve, if you have a buffet or plated meal, and your bar options. If you’re looking to cut costs in this category, consider going with simple decor (letting the venue speak for itself!) Or having only beer and wine options at the bar. Getting married during ‘off-season’ (not May-September) can also often save some green!

• Ceremony (5-10%)

  The ceremony typically includes a venue fee, officiant fee, rentals and decor. If you’re looking to cut costs in this category, consider having your ceremony and reception all in one location. That way, you’re only paying one venue fee instead of two! You can also consider using in-house linens (if offered), skipping the fancy chairs, or repurposing seating from the ceremony to reception to save additional costs.

• Photographer/Videographer (10-15%)

  This category will vary depending on whether you want a videographer in addition to your photographer. This isn’t a category we’d recommend skimping on, since photos capture the memories you’ll be cherishing 30 years down the road. We’ve seen too many brides devastated by an amateur photographer missing important moments. However, if you’re

AB Mag Issue 2.indd 10

really looking to cut costs here, consider forgoing an engagement session or, if an engagement session is part of a package, asking the photographer if you can skip it and apply the credit toward your overall cost.

• Flowers (5-10%)

  Depending on decor for your ceremony and reception, this may go up or down. Some people choose to decorate solely with flowers, which means you could borrow from the reception and ceremony categories a little. Others only want a bouquet, in which case this expense would go way down. If you’re looking to cut costs in this category, ask your florist what flowers are in season when you’re getting married. Sunflowers in August are a lot cheaper than in January!

• Coordinator/Planner (510%)

  Hiring a professional to run your day is very worthwhile. You wouldn’t hire Aunt Agatha to replace your carpets, so why hire her to run your wedding day? Most importantly, planners usually save you money in the long run! If you are looking to save, consider hiring a day-of planner instead of a full coordination package.

• Music (5-10%)

  A good DJ will really get the party started, and isn’t that the whole point?! Getting married in one location is a good way to save some costs in this category as well. This often cuts down on a separate set-up cost with your DJ.

this category will vary. Some brides prefer to spend less on a dress they’ll wear once, others want to splurge or even buy multiple dresses. It’s all up to you, but if you’re looking to save, consider buying an off the rack dress and having alterations done rather than ordering a custom gown.

• Cake (5%)

  Whether you decide to go with a traditional tiered cake or a custom dessert bar with lots of options, you have lots of ways to cut costs here. Consider ordering a small cutting cake and having sheet cakes made to serve guests — they cut it in a backroom and your guests never know! Alternatively, consider cupcakes or pies instead if you’re less traditional. There are lots of yummy options that don’t have to be outrageously expensive.

•Miscellaneous (5-10%)

  Finally, make sure you’re putting aside a portion of your budget for miscellaneous and unexpected costs — everything from invitations to favors, marriage license fees, and unexpected things that pop up. A word to the wise if you’re looking to save a little more change — skip the cheesy wedding favors! They’re expensive, unnecessary, and usually left behind.

• Attire/Rings (5-10%)

  Again, depending on what you want,

10 Reasons Why Everyone Should Do A Boudoir Shoot

AB Mag Issue 2.indd 18

6/15/17 10:16 AM


W

e hear a lot of reasons why brides DON’T do a boudoir shoot at some point, either during the wedding planning process, or after they’ve been married– they’re not confident enough, they want to lose weight, they’re too shy, the list goes on! We’re firm believers in putting those things aside and jumping in headfirst, though, so we came up with 10 reasons why you should consider a boudoir shoot now rather than later!

  1. Confidence is sexy.   It’s not easy to get past feelings of insecurity, but you’re worth it! Amy from A.JO FOTOGRAFI says, “Each and every one of us has insecurities. We spend so much of our energy focusing on the things we dislike about ourselves instead of the things we love. Boudoir offers selfconfidence, freedom, and a retraining of your brain that you are beautiful just the way you are!”

AB Mag Issue 2.indd 19

2. Girl Power!   Trust us; you’ll feel like you can conquer the world after your shoot. Sydney from Sydney Baye Photography says, “It’s truly an empowering experience and opens a level of confidence in a relationship which is immeasurable. The following is a recent response from a client after receiving her photos: “Your photos literally made me cry. They made me feel so strong and beautiful.’”

6/15/17 10:17 AM


3. It’s a Good Excuse to Get Pampered

  Lots of boudoir photographers offer packages that include professional hair and makeup, and who doesn’t love a good glam session?! Indulge yourself for the day and tell us you don’t feel great afterward.

4. It Makes a Great Gift

  We can’t think of a better wedding day, or anniversary gift to your spousethan a book of smokin’ hot photos of you! Trust us, they’ll love it. Pam of Romancing Belle Photography agrees. “Celebrate NOW! I have never met a man who did not love this particular gift!

5. To Celebrate Something!

Maybe it’s to celebrate your wedding, anniversary, or making it through something tough with your spouse. Maybe it’s to celebrate having just had a baby, or maybe it’s just to celebrate how awesome you are, right now, as you are. Whatever the reason, who doesn’t love celebrating something?

AB Mag Issue 2.indd 20

6. Because You Are Enough

  As you are. Not once you lose a few pounds, not on a ‘skinny day’, not once you get in shape. Now, as you are, you are enough, and that’s beautiful. (There’s your reason to celebrate!)

6/15/17 10:17 AM


7. Shopping!!

Not that you need an excuse, but who doesn’t love lingerie shopping?

8. Modeling is Fun

You don’t have to be an expert, that’s what the photographer is for! They’ll give you direction and before you know it you’ll be posing like a pro and loving it!

9. For the Memories

Everyone likes to look back on old photos, and boudoir is no exception. One day you’ll look back and love how amazing you felt on that day.

10. Most of all, Because Your Spouse Loves You Just as You Are.

This one is a little bit of a repeat, but it’s worth mentioning again. Everyone is guilty of sometimes thinking they can’t do a boudoir shoot until something– they lose the baby weight, work on those back muscles, or just generally feel better about themselves. We have news for you– your partner loves you just as you are! We are always our own worst critic, and a boudoir shoot can help you realize how beautiful, inside and out, you truly are! Don’t have a spouse or partner? That’s okay, do a shoot for yourself! Everyone deserves to feel great about themselves!s

5 Things Your Wedding Planner Wants You to Know

W

hen you get engaged, it’s natural to get caught up in the excitement surrounding the thought of planning the wedding you’ve always dreamed of. However, with a wedding comes expectations, and constraints. It can be difficult to maintain a budget and your sanity while counting down to the big day. Hiring a planner is a hugely helpful way to ensure your vision comes together perfectly, and you stay on budget (and maybe even save money!) Not to mention, you can actually enjoy your own big day instead of stressing!   That said, planners can make the magic happen because this isn’t their first rodeo. They understand the ins and outs of planning a large scale event and what it takes. Today we’re laying out some important advice that wedding planners want you to know. 1) You shouldn’t DIY everything.

spend it relishing in the moment than yelling at someone?

  While DIY is a nice way to add a personalized touch to a wedding and stay within budget, it’s not realistic to think that you and your bridesmaids are going to make center pieces, favors, decor, signage AND the napkin swans yourselves. You have enough on your plate, as does your bridal party. Setting out to do-it-yourself on every aspect of your wedding is setting yourself up for failure, and animosity from those you recruit to help at all hours of the night. Find an event rental company or event stylist that has on hand the items with the look you want to achieve. Renting is a good way to cut costs and ensure you get the vision you want.

3) Have realistic expectations.

5) Pick your big-ticket items.

  Your wedding should be everything you’ve dreamed of, and your planner is there to help make that happen. However, they can only work in the constraints you give them. That beautiful flower wall you saw (on Pinterest) can not be achieved with the same grandeur for under $100. You don’t have time to DIY 300 favors and sleep. You can’t expect steak with a $10 per person catering budget. Planners help you achieve your wedding dreams, realistically.

  Too often brides want a $70,000 wedding on a $7,000 budget. It’s just not possible! You get what you pay for. One of the first questions a bride and groom should ask themselves when they begin the planning process is what is most important to them. For example, maybe it’s the venue and photographer. So plan to spend big bucks on those and scrimp in other areas. Unless you have an unlimited budget, you’ll have to pick your battles.   Apple Brides’ preferred vendor Soiree Event Design notes the importance or 4) In case you hadn’t figured prioritizing. “Looking at the overall it out yet and we have to spell it budget is too much, you have to sit out, hire a planner! down and decide what’s top priority and 2) On that note, limit your time  You’ve heard it before – do you really what isn’t.

Just Why Exacty Are Weddings So Expensive!?

W

e’ve all heard it before– the wedding markup is real. This is the idea that vendors charge more, simply because the label of ‘wedding’ is attached to something. Maybe someone told you to ask a baker for a cake for an event, but to not get specific. Or maybe you heard that venues charge more for a wedding party than they do for a regular party, so skip over the mention of nuptials. Or maybe you read one of those ‘advice’ articles about how to save money on your wedding by not mentioning that it was a wedding. So is there any truth to all these rumors? If there isn’t, why exactly are weddings so much more expensive than a normal party?! Let’s resolve this once and for all– there is no wedding markup. Yes, weddings are more expensive than parties. That’s because they’re not the same thing! We’re letting you in on a few secrets- 4, to be exact, that explain why weddings are so expensive, once and for all. 1. The Stakes Are Higher

3. You Get What You Pay For

2. It’s More Than Just One Day

4. Pinterest (and Trends).

Let’s face it– a wedding is a bigger deal than a birthday party. Therefore, the stakes are higher, and wedding vendors work hard to deliver that level of service. Thus, they have to charge accordingly! Their time, just like anyone else’s, is worth money. You want the best, and they want to give it to you! Weddings often seem like twice as much as another event, but that’s because they’re twice as much time, and effort. You’ve spent MONTHS planning your wedding. Well, so have your vendors! All those emails, phone calls, meetings, time spent organizing and planning– it all goes toward the vendors overhead. So you’re paying for more than just the 12 hours of your actual big day. You’re paying for all the time that goes into the wedding prep, too!

AB Mag Issue 2.indd 34

Think about this– if someone offered to re-do your kitchen cabinets for $200 (or free!) you’d probably be suspicious. They’re a professional, and you know you’re going to pay a certain amount when you hire one. It’s worthwhile, because they know what they’re doing. Wedding vendors are the same! They’re professionals, running a business, and charge according to overhead, portfolio and time, as well as many other factors. Sometimes, Pinterest, and other social media sites, make certain things SUPER popular. Like, for example, pink peonies. What they don’t tell you, though, is that peonies have an incredibly short season, and are often difficult to get. So, if you have your heart set on that fluffy pink bouquet, you’re going to have to pay a pretty penny– no matter what that Pinterest caption told you. There’s always a way to make your dreams happen, it just sometimes costs more depending on extenuating factors.
