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!

The beauty of this system is that it will always give you a running balance.
