Now, a wedding can be very complex and has many different aspects to it. Making a wedding budget worksheet can help you stay organized and on task. The first thing you need to do is decide on how much money you are willing to spend. Figure out who will be paying for the wedding, and what everyone is willing to pay. This will help you figure out what you have to spend on each aspect of your wedding. On a budget that's tight or not, it pays to save wherever and in whatever way you can! To start your wedding budget worksheet you need to divide the wedding into categories. Try to divide your wedding up into the reception, the attire, the decorations, the music, the photography, and miscellaneous.
Rings _ Rings are such an important symbolic part of the wedding. You do not want to forget the cost associated with them. Typical costs will run between 2 to 5%. The main differences here will be between the metal used and the diamond chosen for the ring. Design rings and signature pieces can often run 2 to 3 times more then a custom made ring. Many jewelers are happy to custom make a ring for you. _ Flowers / Decorations _ There are a variety of expenses in this category which include everything from flowers to reception decorations. Typical costs will run between 6 to 10% of the total budget.
