KEEP A TRACK OF EXPENSES INCLUDING WHO iS PAYING FOR WHAT

Parents can say that they are contributing a specific amount, and then the couple can decide on a wedding budget and make up any difference themselves. Parents can say that they want to pay for specific items such as the bride’s outfit, the catering. The couple then has to figure out how to pay for everything else.

The couple can set a budget and then ask to split it evenly. This is particularly a good solution for the two families to follow a Goan Wedding. If you already know some of the costs, such as the hall rental, put in the actual numbers, and adjust the other numbers to make up for it. 

ALWAYS ASK AROUND WITH FAMILY AND FRIENDS

There is plentiful information available around the internet, but when if doubt always refer back to family and friends who have gotten married in the past. The Wedding Market is evolving and the costs changes over the years. Make sure you get in touch with the vendor for the updated cost.
