‘How can I keep to my wedding budget?’

Marketing executive Felicity Brown, 26, and her fiancé Steve, from London, are saving for their big day

TV’s Sarah Willingham reveals how to take control of your finances & make the most of your cash

“We’re living with my fiancé Steve’s family to save for our wedding. While we still pay towards the rent and bills, it’s cheaper than if we lived alone. I earn £30k and we have a total budget of £13k for our 80 guests. We’ve put down 50 per cent of the deposit on the venue, £800 for the band and £1k for the photographer. The venue – with food and drink – is a massive £7k. I designed our invitations and my dress, veil and shoes were gifts. We’ve budgeted £80 a dress for my three bridesmaids and £500 for flowers. I’d like to have a videographer if we can afford it. We’d love to go to the Maldives for our honeymoon, which we’re booking later as we’re asking for money as a gift.
