If you do find a budgeting worksheet that you like, you can simply add categories to it or replace the ones you won't use with your own items. For example, many of these worksheets that you will find online have a place for investment income but if you don't have any investments to track either ignore that category or replace it with one of your own. _Once you view a few of these templates, you may realize that you have more categories of spending than you thought. For example, when first creating a budget, many people forget all about gifts, subscriptions, and pet expenses but by working with one of the preprinted templates, you may remember additional expenses you need to consider.
By now, the concept of a wedding budget sample is a little clearer to you. Let's walk through an example. We will assume that the total budget is ฤꯠ (which is below the national average for a wedding budget). The percentages above can be changed accordingly to what you would prefer to focus on during the wedding. If the DJ and lighting design are more important, then you can allocate 11% towards the DJ and lighting instead of 10%. This would translate to (ฤꯠ x 12%) budget instead of a (ฤꯠ x 10%) budget for the DJ. Prioritize the list below as to what is most important to you and then adjust your percentages accordingly.
