Budgeting – not fun, but necessary! This will help!
Setting up a realistic budget is the SINGLE best thing you can do to start your wedding planning on the right foot. (And STICKING to it as you go is even better!). But if you've never planned a wedding before, how do you know what's actually realistic? And how do you ensure that you won't miss anything? This detailed template, in Excel (email [email protected] after purchase if you'd prefer a Google Sheet!), is organized by category and item, but is still customizable so that you can remove items that don't apply and add those that do. Just plug your overall budget into the top, and the spreadsheet magically allocates an appropriate percentage to each category. Set your estimated budget, and then continue tracking your expenses as you hire vendors and make purchases!
