Since times have changed and in keeping with modern day race for time and limited finances available on hand with almost 80 percent of the people, it is important to plan and budget the wedding costs.

When one gets ready o tie the knot, he or she has to start planning for the Big Day perhaps 1/2 years in advance, because of many constraints like availability of place to have the wedding, the jewelry to be bought, the bridal wear expenses, floral decor, the music band availability and so on and so forth.
