Trying to plan a wedding can be stressful for many brides. From picking out wedding colors, finding all your vendors, making a guest list etc... To top off the stress associated with wedding planning, you have to figure out who will be paying for your wedding. Considering the average wedding cost is over  $30,000 according to Business Insider, it's important to have this conversation earlier than later. Today, our Bridal Boutique in Royal Palm Beach has a suggested breakdown of who pays for what. Of course, everyone's situation is different and will likely need to be tweaked a bit, we hope you find our list helpful for creating your own wedding budget.


Planning Your Wedding Budget Most people are familiar with the tradition of the groom's family paying for the rehearsal dinner and the bride's family paying for the ceremony and reception (which typically equates to "everything else").

One of the fun things you get to plan with your Maid of Honor is your Bachelorette Party!

If something goes wrong such as a hair mishap or minor wardrobe malfunction it's best to have a backup plan! It's a good idea for the bride to put together an emergency kit for the big day, that way if something happens, you can fix it easily without going into to complete panic mode! Today our bridal boutique in Royal Palm Beaches has an easy emergency kit every bride should put together prior to the big day.



The list is separated into categories, but many of the items can do double-duty, covering a variety of tasks. For example, clear nail polish is great for a shiny manicure touch-up, but it can also help to stop a run in hosiery. Hair spray works for that too, as well as keeping your hair in place.

Your bridesmaids are a very special part of your big day and for a great reason! The wonderful ladies that you ask to stand next to you on your wedding day are typically comprised of those closest to you - best friends, cousins, sisters, etc. While it is easy to get caught up in all the excitement when it comes to asking those ladies to be your bridesmaids, you'll want to keep in mind some bridesmaid etiquette. While it is not uncommon for them to pay for most of the expenses that come with being a bridesmaid, you'll want to find ways to compromise and give back to them!
