Traditional Approach: Cash Envelopes for all your Spend Categories _ One past useful money budgeting technique was to set up your saving and bill paying system using cash envelopes. Basically the cash envelope system consists of keeping separate envelopes for your spending categories and populating them with cash from your income source. Then when a bill comes due or you need to go shopping for food or an item you need, you simply pay for it with cash from the appropriate envelope _
Last but not least you have the following categories: food, beverages, cake, decorations, music, photography, video, invitations, transportation, accommodation for the couple's wedding night, attendants' gift and miscellaneous costs. Keep in mind that the cost of the food and beverages is determined by the number of guests you invite to the wedding. When you start making a wedding budget, it's probably best to decide on the amount of money you've set aside and then determine the expenses and the number of people to invite. Otherwise, you will risk overspending.
