Sounds like the vision, every bride-to-be has of her potential wedding. However, as lovely as this vision sounds, it takes careful planning, to turn this vision into a reality. So, we have provided a wedding budget template to help potential brides organize their big day.
This wedding budget worksheet template classifies each expense according to the category. It divides the expenses up into the amount; the bride-to-be ideally wants to spend and the actual cost.
It also calculates the overall cost of the wedding and works out the cost per guest. The cost per guest is a good ballpark figure to evaluate since one is advised to either come down or go up from there – depending on the finances available.
All you need to do is enter the names of the couple, the number of guests, your ideal desired costs for each expense and the amount the item is. The overall actual cost, the cost per guest, the perfect total, the actual total and the difference between the ideal and real total is all calculated automatically, once you have to input the needed values.
Also, this wedding planner worksheet has an elegant design that will get your creative juices flowing and can be sent to a wedding planner or family and friends for review.

About Wedding Budget Planner

How to Use Wedding Budget Worksheet?
- Keep the guest list numbers reasonable, remember the number of guests can quickly become bloated. So, it’s wise to keep consistent tabs on the number of guests coming and ensure that only ONE person is responsible for issuing invites.
- A big budget does not necessarily guarantee an amazing wedding. Start thinking about the décor and the theme, well in advance. A golden rule of thumb is, keep it simple and elegance is key.
- Have a wedding journal or notebook or if you prefer electronic methods, use OneNote to store all your ideas for wedding themes, gifts, dresses, venues, etc.
- Chat to friends, whose weddings you liked, read bridal magazines, blogs, and scour Pinterest to get inspiration for your big day.
- If you are working with a wedding planner, or coordinator; sends this wedding budget worksheet and the journal to the wedding planner, for their review and input.
- Like the guest list, wedding costs can quickly balloon, so fill in the ideal amount you want to spend in the template, and make sure that there is not that big of a difference between the perfect amount overall and the actual value overall.
- Get as many quotes as you can at different bakeries, venues, bridal boutiques, etc. This will give you a good idea of what is available and the standard cost for the items you desire.
