Show Notes

If you listened to Season 2 episode 5 about Budgets vs Spending Plans, you know that planning a wedding takes great financial planning too.

I’m ecstatic to let you know that our newest resource, My Wedding Spending Plan Workbook is available for you in Pre-Sale!

The workbook is comprised of 5 detailed worksheets that guide you through prioritization, research, spending plan, tracking and payments.

The first step to creating your wedding spending plan is to prioritize which aspects of your wedding are the most important to you. 

  • What do you care about the most? 
  • What is most important when remembering your wedding in 20 years?
  • What do you want your guests to say about your wedding?
  • What do you want your planning and wedding weekend experience to be like?

Depending on where you live and even the date or time may change the costs of your wedding. It is best to research reasonable costs before booking any vendors. This will allow you to see what kind of budget you should prepare for. 

If you've ever kept a budget for home or on a work project, you know that planning in advance is a very important step to staying on track. If you miss a line item, your entire budget can be thrown off. 

Our sheet accounts for allocating your budget for the important items of the day and allows you to add in extras that may be specific to your wedding plans. 

Once you've set your line item allowances, use this sheet to track quotes, actual costs and deposits made. You'll have confidence in seeing your dollars spent and what is remaining to pay.

Finally, the payment sheet rounds out the workbook to make sure that you know where you money is going and to whom. 

The line items allow for more detailed information on your payments in and out, including addresses, payment types, who is responsible for that payment, due dates, balances, gratuity and notes. 

This  week we are launching our new product My Wedding Spending Plan. To get the My Spending Plan Workbook, at the PRE-SALE rate of $79 (the regular price will be $249), send us your email address before 11:59pm April 3rd, 2021.
