If you need to plan a wedding budget but don't know where to start, here's a detailed checklist to get you going and have a budget in place to follow.


In our last year’s infographic about the true cost of a wedding, we’ve looked at the possible expenses associated with weddings. It serves as a good starting point for anyone planning a wedding on a budget.

But, if you want to assess your wedding cost to see how everything played out. Aussie Blog has created rather detailed checklist in a form of an infographic to help you look at your budget, vendor estimate and the actual cost. It serves as an excellent tool to review and assess a wedding – a postmortem.

Yet, it can also serve as a tool to help you plan your budget as you plan a wedding, especially if you’re not really into spreadsheets.

TIP: Do you want to really WOW your clients and get a ton of referral business from their friends, family and colleagues? Once the wedding is complete and you know the numbers, print and fill out this checklist to show your clients how you were able to save them money and yet deliver an exceptional event. Nobody can deny an itemized list of savings that shows how hard you worked on a wedding and savings you were able to deliver on their investment.

If you did go over the budget, this can serve as an excellent tool to look at the itemized list of expenses and show client where and why you went over the budget. It happens, but being a professional means you take responsibility to be transparent with your client. Honesty is the best policy, and this checklist helps you deliver it in a unique way.
