Planning your wedding on a budget can get overwhelming with all the price tags associated with the major details. This makes it hard for you to see the big picture for your unforgettable celebration. The key to determining how much you can spend on your big day? Defining top priorities and setting clear boundaries. Here at Hitcheed, we help you to do just that:

  • Plan your wedding budget: 
    Determine the max amount you want to spend on your celebration, and stick to it!

  • Set your priorities: 
    For some couples, their priorities are the same, whereas, with others, the bride and groom have different expectations and place different importance on the way the budget should be spent. Create a full list of every item your wedding budget should include!

  • Go from low to high:
    Allocate more budget to what’s more important to you, your guests, and your families. If an overseas pre-wedding shoot is the most important thing to both the bride and groom, find a photographer you love and make that a high. This allows you to afford that photographer within your given budget. Take note that the items that are on the low side of the budget should be below budget and the high items should not exceed your budget.

  • Splurge or Save?
    As a rule of thumb, 40% of your wedding budget should go to the actual day costs–venue, food catering costs, event décor, gown and suit rental, photography, entertainment, flowers. Most couples spend on aspects of the day guests will enjoy the most or allocate more budget to photography and videography to look back on your special day.

With all that planning, we’re here to make your plans for engaging actual day photography services easier. We rounded up 10 of the top photographers you can hire for less than S$2,000 for your actual day.
