Wedding Planning Worksheets. Our selection of worksheets include a Budget Worksheet, Venue Selection Worksheet, Music Worksheet, Attire Worksheet and many more. You can simply print out the worksheets; however, they are more useful if you download them to your computer. Then you can enter your wedding information, save them, print them out and store them in your 3-ring Wedding Binder. Have changes/updates for a spreadsheet? Simply edit your saved electronic version, print and replace the one in your binder.

Our budget worksheet is particularly useful. Enter your estimated or planned wedding budget numbers. The worksheet totals up costs for all of your wedding services and supplies by category.  As decisions are made, enter your actual costs. This is a great way to identify money saved in one category so that you can allocate it to a different category as needed!

Wedding Timelines & Checklists. The best way to keep your wedding planning on time and stress-free is to set up an overall wedding planning schedule, or timeline. Use our Overall Timeline to help you think about all possible tasks that need to be addressed to pull off a great wedding.
