RealSimple provides a great budget worksheet. Remember, when putting together your wedding budget, the suggested percentages are just that: suggestions. The most important part of the budget is that you start by including everything and then work to make sure it all fits within the money you have. If you START by choosing which parts of your wedding are more important and should be allotted more of your budget, you will avoid the tragedy and stress of having to slice important details later. A wedding consultant is a fantastic resource in setting up a reasonable budget and helping you think through where money could be saved.
