Budgeting Beyond The Wedding Gown

I know the defining moment for a bride...when it really hits home that she's going from a Miss to a Mrs is when she says YES TO THE DRESS!  It's a physical reaction unlike any other, at least that's what I've been told :)  But please don't get caught up into thinking that the wedding gown + tax is it for your journey when making selections about what to wear and how to look on wedding day.  There are plenty other components that must be added to the portion of your budget called...WEDDING ATTIRE.

For those of you reading the magazines and surfing the Internet, it's said that the 10-15% of the entire wedding budget should go towards wedding attire.  Please understand, that this figure includes both you and your groom, although the biggest bulk of the monies does go towards the bride and her look of the day.  Consider the WEDDING ATTIRE checklist below when making budget decisions:

Bridal gown
Headpiece or veil
Jewelry (not your wedding bands)
Hair Stylist
Make-up Artist
Spa Treatments
Groom's Formal Wear, including shoes and undergarments

Until next time...WEDologize!
