@MissClementine- Yeah for budgets! I did use the knot.com’s budget planner but have since switched to Wedding Wire since it worked better for me and I have our wedding website there.

What do you think your #1 budget item will be? I know ours is food! Everything else I can do at a reasonable price but the food just added right up! UGH.

I also use The Knot’s budgeting, but more or less to remind me of things I may have forgotten to budget. The most expensive thing about our wedding is food – we have managed to get incredible deals on everything else, from bridesmaid dresses to invitations.

The Knot had a great resource that include breakdowns for the major categories by percentage.  I love that I can take my total budget and very simply break down all the cost categories.  I have adjusted some percentages due to my personal preferences, but it is going great.

It really is helpful when you get into crazy bride mode to help say, its just not in the budget.  There are a lot of extras and add-ons that the wedding industry wants you to have, but if its not in the budget, then your answer is simple.

I love my budget!
