I just wanted to share an application I found that has been extremely helpful with budgeting: Mint.com
It has a web component and an abbreviated iphone app. You input your bank accounts, credit cards, savings, loans, etc, and it helps you build your budget. It’s a little tricky to use at first, but I’ve found the visual representation of our money habits very sobering.
So if you’re interested in tracking your wedding spending, I highly recommend this app!

I use Mint. I like it – especially when they emailed me to let me know I got a bad fee (my bank charged me to change my name!! luckily it only took a phone call to get it removed). It can’t load all my accounts, though.

I’ve been thinking of using Mint but I’m wondering if it will let you set up an account which contains 2 incomes.

I wanted to use that program, but they don’t work with my bank! Sad times. My SO uses it and likes the efficient managment and site security.

I used to use Mint.com but then I realized that I check my account on my own anyway. The e-mails were just a hassle and I didn’t really want financial information relayed through e-mail. I’m pretty good with checking my account regularly so it’s not that bad. However, it does have a nifty tool where it shows you how much you make and how much you spend (in colorful pie chart form!) and how much you spend on each thing. It really shows that “Yes I should cut back on ______” or “Yes, I can buy those cute shoes.”

thats a lot of personal banking power for one website to hold. I would be incredibly nervous that if that site got hacked, I would lose everything

@joey Yes, it lets you link to as many accounts as you want, plus add investment accounts and material assets.

I don’t use Mint as often as I should, but I did notice that if my account gets below a certain level they send me a warning email. Thankfully it wasn’t a surprise–lots of bills that month.

I love mint! Can’t say enough good things about it. They just came out with a ton of new features as well, that really help you budget and plan for you future.
