wedding budget

i dont know how far can we apply this wedding budget guideline when it comes to Malay wedding hee. But, no harm to share right? Nanti kite tailor2 lah balik kan...

Btw, the guideline is taken from Martha Stewart Wedding - Summer 2008 edition.
  • reception (F&B, rentals, site) - 40% to 50%
  • flowers -10%
  • photo/videography - 10%
  • bride's & groom's attire - 5% to 10%
  • music - 5% to 10%
  • planner or coordinator - 10% to 15%
  • misc (invitation, fees, favors, transportation etc) - 10%
  • contingency - 5% to 15%
as for mine, i will definitely slash that 10% for music & me oso quite kedekut la to put aside 10% solely for flowers hehehe...

the rest tu ok lah, but i dont think im gonna hire a wedding planner :P i'm planner by myself cos you know what? each part of wedding planning really excitesss me !
