Reality Check- Budgets
We are very newly engaged (2 months today!) and went to our first venue viewing earlier today...
The venue was beautiful (as you would expect for over £8k, hire only), but it's got me thinking do we really want to spend that much? Has anyone chosen not to set a budget which is their maximum potential budget?
We want to travel (more) in future, will want to move house etc and my sensible head is playing devil's advocate. Would we be happy with a say £7k wedding, rather than a £15k and then have money for other things? Should we have 'had the feeling' if this venue was for us? Has anyone chosen to have a cheaper wedding on their wedding in favour of other things?
At the moment, I am torn between 'it's just one day' and the 'you only plan to do it once'! Hoping viewing venue 2 next weekend will make it clearer.
