Planning Your Budget
There are many steps involved when planning a function or wedding. Many suppliers will come together to ensure your event is a success.
One of the first steps will be to determine a budget for your function. While it is quite common to overspend on your budget, you definitely don’t want to take out a mortgage to cover the expenses.
Working with a budget will help you with initial enquiries within your set price range. Once suppliers provide a quote these can all be put together to give you a realistic expenses guide. This way you can remove items or cut back where required.
At weddings it is important to begin with your main suppliers to ensure a date can be set. Once you have decided a venue, catering company, a photographer, celebrant and entertainment you can really begin to plan the smaller more personal details.
Food and alcohol may be the biggest expenses at a wedding. There are many great caterers in Australia that provide beautiful fresh quality food made to order. Every budget is different however Finger Food and Buffet can be provided from $35+ per person.
If you are planning to provide your own beverages this will keep costs down and allow a greater selection for the budget. Hiring a bar staff to serve can be a cost effective option.
