The buzz word for 2009 in the wedding world has been "budget". That's all the media seems to talk about. However, the media seems to be defining the word "budget" as cut backs, make your own, make do with less; whereas as surely that's all to do with the recession and the credit crunch?
Wikipedia describes the word budget:
Budget generally refers to a list of all planned expenses and revenues. It is a plan for saving and spending.
If you want to spend £100 on wedding stationery, you budget for that £100. If you want to spend £1000 on wedding stationery, you budget for that £1000. So if you’ve got £100, why should you be labelled a budget bride by the media? You are all brides planning the most special day of your life; whether you have a large or small budget; don’t let the media label you.
Although we would add if you have £100 to spend, but want to spend £1000, why get married now, why not wait a year, two years or have a smaller wedding.
Remember to have the wedding of your dreams; you are creating memories and don’t want to look back in ten years and wish “what if?”.
