One of the most important things that you need to consider when planning your marriage proposal is your budget. The more elaborate your proposal plan, the more money you need to set aside. Figuring out just how much money you can spend will determine what options you have available. So how do you figure out your proposal budget?
Factor in the Cost of the Ring
Before considering your proposal budget, you need to figure out how much you will spend on the ring. Once you’ve figured out how much the ring will cost, you can turn your attention to the proposal budget itself. Many people spend all their money on the ring but don’t leave a big budget for the proposal. But remember our motto, you an upgrade a diamond but you can never change a memory.
Don’t forget to consider the cost of the ring box. It’s not an expense that many people think about, but if you want to present your ring in the best ring box – such as the sleek and modern engagement ring boxes at www.ringstash.com – then you need to add just a little bit extra to your budget for that.
Determine Your Time Line
How much time do you have to save for the proposal? Are you planning on proposing a month from now, or a year from now? The longer your time frame, the more you can save, which equals a higher budget. If you really want to wow your partner, set aside as much as you reasonably can each month, and don’t touch those funds until its time to make the proposal happen.
Create A Spreadsheet
Once you have determined what you proposal budget is, create a spreadsheet so you can start logging all of the expenses. Build in a formula so that it keeps you up-to-date with what you have left to spend.
Hire A Proposal Planner
If the thought of creating your own proposal budget sounds too stressful, consider making your first investment in a proposal planner. We know how much everything costs for your proposal and we can create a budget for you and ensure you stay within it.
