Last week I shared with you the Wedding Planning Checklist. As I was writing that article, I realized how valuable it would be for brides to have some kind of template to keep track of their wedding budget.

Why is a Wedding Budget Important?

List the checklist I gave you last week, a budget is a roadmap for your money. You’re telling your money where to go how to work for you. You’ve worked hard for that piece of paper and you want to exchange it for something that is valuable to you!

When you have a budget, you are able to see what’s important to you based on how much money you have spent or plan to spend.

Maybe it’s important to you and your fiance that your reception is the biggest and best party you ever throw. That importance should be reflected in how much you plan to spend on a DJ. After all, it’s your DJ that is reading your crowd and playing the music!

Down the rabbit hole of research I went!

I wanted to see what the “industry average” was for each specific vendor category that a couple spent on their wedding. Thanks to The Wedding Report, I was able to review that information!

You’ll be able to keep track of what you originally had in mind to spend, what you spent, how much your deposit was, when the balance is due, and the due date for your final payment!

And don’t fret, I included a section for those unexpected expenses you’ll have while wedding planning!

Next, I wanted to be able to give a template that was easy to follow. I found a few already made templates but felt that they didn’t flow very well. So what you’ll find is a creation of several templates made into one.
