“Wants vs Needs”
Setting your priorities is essential in creating a budget for your wedding. If you are planning a wedding on a tight budget, more so that you need to prioritize. Failure to do such may result in overspending. Which you’ll definitely regret later.
Well, not the marriage itself. But rather how you utilize your money. Some years after the wedding, would it be nice to look back without any panghihinayang? Thoughts and feelings na parang sayang. Sana ginastos na lang sa ganito, sa ganyan so forth and so on. It’s better to look back at your wedding with a smile. Nothing else but joy and a blissful feeling.
Marriage is building your new life together. Kaya nga ang kasal ay simula pa lang ng mga expenses. We should look at the long-term basis. After the wedding, lilipat sa bagong bahay at magsisimula ng bagong buhay.
For sure marami ang mga gastos. It is not practical and wise to spend 350k on your wedding. Lalo na kung yun ang lahat ng savings ninyo or worst ng isa lang sa inyo.
You might regret it in the near future. Especially, when bills start to come in. Like the house mortgage, water, electricity bill and internet etc. Mag papa – gas ka pa ng kotse mo. Kung wala ka naman kotse — well, ang pamasahe mo mula Bulacan o kung saan ka man galing papunta sa work. Overwhelmed already? That’s the reality. So, start to consider things over and over.
Ano ba yung goal ninyo engrande or simple na wedding? Or do you want a smart wedding? THAT MEANS YOUR DREAM WEDDING WAS ACCOMPLISHED WITHIN YOUR BUDGET CONSIDERATIONS.
One way to make your smart dream wedding is by DIY projects. You do not like to start your marriage empty-handed do you?
From this decision, you can write down your priorities for your wedding ceremony and reception.
Listing your priorities goes hand in hand with creating your budget. Work again with your partner. All throughout the process, you’ll need each other’s insights in order to identify your priorities.
Pag – usapan yung mga gusto ninyo. Kung ano ang mga mas kailangan. Make a vision for your wedding. Isipin ninyo ano ang gusto ninyo na venue? Saan ba kayo ikakasal? You may also want to recall ang ilang mga weddings na naka – attend kayo.
Alin ang mga bagay doon ang sa tingin ninyo ay essentials? Alin naman kayang mga elements sa ibang wedding ang sa tingin ninyo that you can go without?
This is when your likes and dislikes about weddings come in. These will help you a lot in identifying your priorities. When you make a mutual decision, you also create an atmosphere of harmony in your relationship. Such is an important tool for any marriage.
It is also helpful if you establish a mutual decision regarding all your wedding needs and wants. Hindi yung puro gusto mo lang. You always have to consider your partner.
