Hi all! Relatively new here but loving your input on the boards.
Is there a downloadable excel spreadsheet that is useful for planning and budgeting for a destination wedding? Like an all-in-one file, or even just for budgeting?

Not really answering ur question, but I have been using TheKnot’s budget and guest list and checklist. Other than that, i built my own excel budget spreadsheet from scratch.

@BeeG35: me too; the knot’s one is as good as any I would have created myself and the bonus is that when you enter your budget, it gives you recommendations on how much to distribute to each category. Then they have a payment tracker where you your deposits and whatnot and it recalculates your balances.
I’m not actually a spreadsheet person, but more of a list-maker so all my person records are in list format.

@Overjoyed: totally with u on the knot. I like how they even let u do a seating chart. I edited some of the checklist items, deleted some, changed due dates, stuff like that. I play around on excel adding the math functions so that if I adjust guest number, it will automatically adjust figures like tax and gratuity and show me total cost and i don’t have to add it all up with a calculator. i have a separate tab for each aspect of budget, ex: invitation costs, food and drink costs, photography, dress and tux and accessories etc. It just helps pass the time when I’m bored lol. I also have a planner who lives on our destination island who is probably doing exactly the same thing I am lol. I wish I knew what she uses lol.
