How much can you spend?
First of all, you should talk with your partner about how much money they have and what the actual expenses will be; that budget that you both discussed, planned and established should be respected. After that, it only remains to comply with and stick to that budget in order to avoid future conflicts.

But, there is also unnecessary stuff (like maybe live music, open bar, limousines, etc.) So, determining what’s important and what’s not will help you set your priorities.
The basics: the venue and catering
The rent of the venue, the catering and the drinks will suppose the first big chunk of money. It’s convenient that you find out in advance what type of services are included with the hiring of the room (if that means saving some money!). Then, define and group in different subgroups the rest of the products and services that you will need for the wedding
The wedding dress
The price of the wedding dress varies a lot depending on where you buy it and its characteristics. Generally the average price can be quite a big chunk of your Pittsburgh wedding budget. Don’t forget to add shoes, bouquets and other accessories, so keep that in mind when making the budget.
