There are 4 separate pages in the LDS Wedding Budget.

Part 1: The first page (Cost Estimator Tab-at the bottom of the spread sheet) has different items you may need/want for your wedding. This is the page that you and your fiancé fill in with your wish list of what’s most important.

Part 2: The next page (Estimated Budget Chart Tab-at the bottom of the spread sheet) shows a pie chart and a list of the percentages for items from page 1. You will write down the percentages (i.e. Bridal attire 7%, reception 12% etc.) that was generated from page 1 into either page 3 (the ascending budget which adds up as you spend) or page 4 (the descending budget which subtracts from your total as you spend).

Part 3: On the upper left hand corner of the budget you choose (ascending budget or descending budget) you will enter the Total amount you have to spend for your wedding. When you enter the amount you have to spend- the budget will calculate (based on your percentages and total amount) how much you may spend on each category. Each time you buy an item, list it in the left side of the category and the amount immediately next to it on the right.

NOTE: You may change the total amount of money and the percentages for each category any time and as many times as you wish. If you receive more money for your wedding, add it to the total. And if, for example, your dress doesn’t cost as much as you thought, save the difference, or subtract some of the percentages from your dress category and add it to another category, such as photography.

I hope this information helps. If you have any other questions, please feel free to email me at I’d be happy to help you further!

Thank you for visiting us at and have a beautiful wedding!

  1. The wedding planner is excellent. the budget is very practical. However, what do i have to do to add more items to the planner?

    • Hi Peter, I’m so glad you like the planner and the budget. We are planning on adding new interactive and printable pages. Let us know what kinds of information or pages you’d like to see and we’ll do our best to create them as soon as possible. When’s the wedding? Rose

  2. There are no table and chair rentals, tablecloths, other decorations. I like the idea of being able to add some of our own budget items since every wedding is different and unique.
    Thanks for the budget – it is a great way to get started. 🙂

  3. Hello there! Indeed this budget planner will come in handy for my forth-coming wedding. Although i am an African and the tradition is a bit different from what you have there but the similarities are more and i sure will make use of it to the fullest…. Thanks!!
