How to create your Wedding Business Plan and keep your budget under control?

Do you want to avoid throwing away the money you saved for your Indian wedding in Italy?

Have you ever organized a birthday party, a trip, or renovations? I think that, firstly, you got an idea on how you wanted the result to be, by looking online or specialized magazines. Then you read up about what you needed to realize it and also calculated how much you could spend on the party or the renovation. After that, you went to a specialized shop or contacted some company specialized in that sector to ask for an estimation. And in the end, you chose the one that was closer to the picture you had in mind and that also allowed you to stay within the prearranged budget.

Basically, without being the manager of a big company, you did exactly all those steps necessary to realize any kind of industry project – the business plan. If you look up “business plan” on Wikipedia, this is what you find: A business plan is a formal written document containing business goals, the methods on how these goals can be attained, and the time frame within which these goals need to be achieved. Doesn’t it look like our life is full of business plans, both small and big ones?

The biggest project of your life

And then, it comes your wedding, especially your destination wedding. It’s the biggest project of your life, your teenage dream coming true: getting married to your loved one in the most beautiful country in the world – Italy. So romantic! But now what? You need a very respectable business plan, don’t you think?

Of course, it may seem strange linking a wedding to a business plan. Certainly, you’ll hear someone saying it’s a crazy idea, that a good Indian wedding needs to have good food, good music and that’s it, and that maybe you could do some research online, like you usually do, to understand how much money you’ll need. But that could be the biggest mistake! We are talking about a wedding in a foreign country, where there’s a different currency and any small variable can influence your budget. The prices are different, the couple’s needs are different, the rules are different, and the vendors work in a different way. Maybe you already have in mind an approximate amount of money you would like to spend on your wedding, but is it realistic? How to calculate the budget you need?

How to calculate the budget you need for your destination wedding in Italy?

That is a key question. And not having a right and solid answer jeopardizes your savings and your parents’ too. Maybe you risk starting to plan you wedding in Italy without having the right budget and, after losing weeks or months looking for vendors and receiving quotes, then you find out you can’t afford it and that you just wasted your time. Or maybe you fall in love with a beautiful Italian Villa, which only has a few dates left available. You rush into signing the contract and give the non-refundable deposit. And then you find out with the exclusive vendors of the Villa, that you can’t afford the set up and/or the number of prewedding events you pictured with just the budget you have left. The risk of planning a destination wedding without relying on the real budget and without knowing what is that budget made up of, on the one hand leads you to build false expectations and waste time in vain, on the other hand leads you to throw the budget off balance, and then have to give up some of the vendors or, even worse, a part of the wedding.
