Budgeting Worksheet Tip : Compare your Monthly Spend to a Standard Guideline _ Once you put your numbers in, how do you compare to the national average or some other standard guideline? The budgeting worksheet should give you some idea of how you compare in each of the above categories. Then you can make some decisions if you're over or under spending in some areas. The beauty of using worksheets is not only to see where your money is going but to see how you compare to a standard guideline.
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.
