Looking for a wedding budget breakdown? The free Wedding Budget Worksheet by Vertex42 provides a comprehensive breakdown of the items to consider when planning your wedding. The spreadsheet contains an Estimator tool that lets you specify your allowable total wedding cost, and then adjust the percentages to allocate to the various categories, such as apparel, reception, flowers etc. The Breakdown worksheet lets you include estimated and actual costs for all of the individual items within these categories.

If you don't want to use a spreadsheet or don't have access to a spreadsheet program, you can use this printable worksheet to help plan your wedding. The only downside is that the calculations won't be automatic, and you won't be able to add, change, or delete categories or items from the worksheet.
