Stick or put your financial position where you can see it simply every day somewhere like on the fridge or near your bed where it is entirely viewable. Ensure you and your other half have a copy each, of the budget. Try to not add extra costs to the concluded budget as you'll have to also find where that additional cash is going to come from. Usually there's always a way like going for a more cost-effective marriage cake or centrepieces. When you and your better half have concluded and made a budget, get the close buddies and relatives to realise it also. You have to be on guard for any ideas that don't agree to your financial position. They'd initially become distressed but will come round when they realize at the end of the day it's your marriage and your cash, so you have to spend it as you think acceptable. But to avoid ungainly dealings with any close members of family or mates it'd be best to share your concluded budget to them. There are a selection of options, from cherry blossoms to wild flowers.
