19 Oct Church Wedding Budget Planning
Generally, a church wedding does not require as much budget allocation as a traditional Indian wedding ceremony does. One of the main advantages of a church wedding is the venue rental.
If you are a church member, you may get a 20–30% discount on the venue rental. Some churches do not even charge any venue rental for their members! Check out the following budget lists we’ve prepared for the groom and the bride of a church wedding.
Groom’s side (host)
Venue fee: Church (Free or 20–30% discount for church members)
- Lighting, air conditioning, tables & chairs
- Choir team/Musicians
*Church in-house decorator
Ribbons and flowers
Wedding Booklet (get the latest sample version from church management)
Basket flower (for flower boy/girl)
Couple offerings (sweets, fruits, cake, wine, etc.)
Groom’s suit (rent/purchase)
Bride’s gown/saree (rent/purchase)
*Parents attire (groom’s & bride’s sides)
Wedding car (rent/own)
Food & beverages
Invitation cards and postage
Pre-wedding treatment (recommended by makeup artists)
Manicure & pedicure
*Assistant makeup artist
The above checklist may also apply for couples who wish to have their vows exchanged by the beach or in a garden. That said, you might want to consider renting transparent canopies in case it rains cats and dogs!

How do you know when you need a Principle Photographer?
Should I Hire An Assistant Makeup Artist?
Does the photographer cover these moments for you during Wedding Day?
(If the moments are not shared, means they might overlook or do not cover properly)
Is your big day fall in good wedding month?
Is your big day fall under weekends?
Then do not think twice if you have found the right photographer.
Experience photographer are booked 1 to 2 years in advance.
(There is a reason behind why they are booked so early)
Honestly, how many experience photographers have you found online?
If this is one of them that shortlisted, I would suggest do not delay as they might not be available on the following day.
Grab yours before they are not available for you!
