Setting a Wedding Budget and Allocation

Updated: Sep 29, 2021

Weddings are expensive. Did you know that 40% of the average wedding's budget goes to venue and catering? That includes food, drinks, rentals, and the venue(s) where you will hold your wedding ceremony and reception. Now, let's go over where you should allocate the costs.

Wedding Photography and Videography

After venue and catering, photography and videography will take up a large chunk of your budget. Couples spend $3,000-$4,000 for their pre-wedding and wedding day photography and videography.

Wedding Planner

Wedding planners can cost between $1,000-$10,000. The price and budget vary greatly by each wedding planner and their services. Our team at I Do by Impressario will guide you through your preparations so your guests and bridal party have a great time.

As your Wedding & Reception Planner based in Singapore, we handpick all the special services and products for your consideration. We assist the couple, family members and even relatives with any unique selection of venues, catering services, entertainment choices, thematic and floral decorations, transportations and travel arrangements. We handle all bookings and liaise your schedule with vendors and service providers for the big day. You can talk with us anytime to know more about our packages.

Wedding Decor, Makeup, Transportation

Once the big-ticket items are out of the way, you need to divvy up the rest of your budget on smaller expenses like flowers, decor, hair and makeup, and transportation.

Wedding Packages

If you're looking for a more affordable and straightforward route, you may want to look into bridal packages that consist of gowns, suits, make-up, photography— everything you need in one bundle. The average cost of bridal packages is between $3,000-$7,000.

Hidden Extras

Don't forget to save room in the budget for things that can pop up at the last minute. Taxes, delivery, and service fees are quite common in the wedding world.

These are the main things that you’ll need to consider when setting and arranging your wedding. If you come to think of it, you’ll be busy organizing all these things and this can be very stressful! It's important to understand all of the expenses that come with a wedding so you can start creating an appropriate budget.
