The start of the wedding planning process can be difficult. A very important question you must answer is, “What is your budget?” It will usually be the first question any wedding vendor will ask and is clearly something they need to know before starting to plan. But if you've never planned a wedding before, it’s challenging to decide on a budget because you most likely don’t know how much a wedding costs.
