I read and heard about it so many times and I ignored it somehow. Maybe it was because I lived under my parents' roof until I got married that I didn't get to experience having to have a budget to pay the bills. I got paid and I basically always had enough to get the stuff I wanted, so I didn't really expect to go over budget when I was planning my wedding nor did I really understood the concept entirely. If this is your case, then listen to my advice.
First, create a budget, research and try to estimate the cost of all of the great and small things you want for your wedding and then compare it to the money you actually have to spend. Second, you might need to adjust and compromise on things that you don't really need or simply cannot afford. And third, stay within your budget!! The last thing you need to start your marriage is a bunch of debt.
