If you are just starting to plan your wedding, keep in mind that the first question most wedding vendors will ask is, “What is your budget?” It’s a piece of information that they obviously need to know before beginning to plan your special day. But if you have never planned a wedding before, you probably don’t have any knowledge about the cost of a wedding, which can make it hard to decide on a budget.
