Planning your wedding can be stressful, especially while carefully managing your finances. You have most components at the top of your list when budgeting for your wedding such as wedding attire, finding a great Florida golf course wedding venue, invitations, flowers, etc. It can be quite a lot, however, with attention to detail in your budget, you can pull off creating a wedding budget. Here’s how!

 

Wedding Planning Apps

Since we’re on our smartphones throughout most of the day, you can download some highly rated wedding budgeting apps. These apps include:

  • Track My Spend
  • Wedding Happy
  • Wedding Planner Countdown
  • Fudget: Budget Planner Tracker
  • Pocketbook
  • Splitwise

Keeping these apps handy can help you think rationally on how much to spend on what for your wedding. A wedding budget app can help you stay on track with wedding finances while being logical with your spending.

 

Wedding Budget Based on Income

To create a wedding budget, you must first take a look at how much you and your future spouse make. Determining how much you both make can help you decide how much you spend on the wedding. There are various sources online that give you an estimate based on income, where you want the wedding to take place, etc.

 

Wedding Checklist

Another great method to create a wedding budget is by writing up a wedding checklist. A checklist will help keep you organized as you’re budgeting for your wedding as you’re prioritizing where to spend your money first. Some tasks to start off your wedding checklist with are:

  • Reserve your venue of choice
  • Create a guest list
  • Book your officiant
  • Buy wedding attire

 

Planning out your wedding should be fun and creating a wedding budget can help you and your soon-to-be-spouse determine your spending limit. If you pay attention to your budget and fulfill your dream wedding, walking down the aisle and exchanging vows will be worth the planning ahead.
