I’m a huge advocate for transparency and clarity when it comes to planning weddings. As a wedding photographer, it is incredibly important to know all the details, possibilities, and desires of the wedding I’m capturing. And I carry this mantra out with all the couples I work with – encouraging them to know all the financial components of their plans.

Because before you know it, those pre-wedding parties and numerous small fees add up to a large bill that suddenly someone is responsible to pay! In an effort to help you manage all these costs, I’m searching for a fantastic stand alone wedding budget app. If you find one, please let me know.

In the meantime, I want to share this enlightening infographic designed by the brilliant minds at mint.com. It highlights the hidden costs of weddings and gives you an idea of how much certain items could run you. Heads up – this information is from 2011 and was gathered from around the US, so take that into account when comparing your numbers.

And if you’re looking for a simple format to layout your budget, check out ours here.

Stay tuned as we’ll soon dive into splitting up the costs, having the ‘money talk,’ and negotiating the best rate possible.
