Wedding Budget Tool

If you’re planning a wedding, you already know how expensive it can be – but have you stopped to REALLY think about it.
It’s easy to get caught up in all the magic of the day, without looking at how much $$$ are adding up.

We are ALL about being financially responsible, while investing in things that will enhance your wedding day – we know money is was one of the main causes of wedding stress. Your wedding day doesn’t have to add tons of extra stress to your or your groom (or your wallet).

We love getting to be a resource to couples in the wedding planning process! Sure, we can’t directly help you pay for any of the costs of your wedding (thought we wish we could!), but we can give budgeting tips for your wedding. Which is exactly why we created this FREE wedding budgeting tool!

All you have to do is enter how much you are planning to spend (or have spent) on each category, and then fill in how many months until the wedding. This will break it all down and show you how much you need to plan on spending (and saving) every month to pay for your wedding!

Wedding Budget Tool

We love getting to be involved in so many weddings – but we also know that marriage is SO much more than just one day. The wedding is magical, but it’s not worth putting a couple into thousands of dollars of debt.

Sure, hopefully, you have enough assistance and money saved up to make your wedding EXACTLY how you want it, but if not – THAT’S OKAY!

Your marriage is going to last a lifetime, don’t get it started by adding a ton of financial burden. There are plenty of ways you can cut costs at your wedding that no-one will ever even know about.

Saving Money On Your Wedding Budget

Switch out the wedding band for an affordable DJ. A 2 or 3-tier cake with cupcakes instead of a massive 6-tier cake. A beautiful brides’ bouquet full of those expensive peonies you’ve dreamed of, while choosing in-season, more cost-effective flowers for your bridesmaid’s bouquets. We have tons of tips for that, and we might just have to write a whole blogpost to give you all of our suggestions!

You don’t have to sacrifice the joy and magic of your wedding day, but it doesn’t have to cost an arm and a leg either. We hope this tool is helpful for you!
