An average wedding will spend 50% of their budget on the reception. This includes food, drinks, and venue. 10% of the budget is spent on the attire. This includes bridesmaid dresses, suites for the groomsmen, as well as the bridal gown. Another 10% is spent on the decorations, and another 10% on music. Plan to spend another 10% on a photographer or a videographer, and the rest for miscellaneous charges. This of course is not set in stone. Your wedding might be much different then this. But when setting up your wedding budget worksheet this is a good place to start.
Setting up a budgeting worksheet isn't a hard chore. In fact, if you like using spreadsheets it can actually become quite enjoyable. The beauty of a budgeting worksheet is that you can see all your numbers at a quick glance in an easy to read format. It's instantly editable so changes can be made on the run and will save considerably on white_out. And perhaps the best feature, is that you can always keep a history of your transactions (depending on your hard_drive space).
