LDS Wedding Budget Instructions
Click the Picture To Download a Copy of the Wedding Budget for LDS Weddings:
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.
