Check out Wedding Wire — you can actually add payments to your budget and it’ll figure out how much you’ve already paid/how much you still owe.  🙂

 

Just off of the top of my head:

(Total Amount Left after the deposits/payments we have already made)

  • Venue/Food/Cake/etc. – VERY VERY VERY ROUGH ESTIMATE  $6800
  • Alcohol – $1500 (I hope!)
  • Chiavari Chairs/Charger plate rentals – $700
  • Ceremony – $300
  • Officiant – $200
  • Flowers/venue decor – have about $1200 budgeted for this, hoping to not spend it all
  • Photographer – $0 (paid off, baby!!)
  • DJ/Uplighting/Phtobooth – $1400
  • Transportation – $200
  • Ceremony musicians – $300
  • Groom attire – $40
  • Bride accessories – budgeted about $250
  • Hotel stay – $440
  • Hair Makeup – budgeting about $150 (haven’t found a salon yet)
  • Stationary – budgeted about $500 (hoping to spend less!)
  • Gifts – budgeted $300
  • Rings – about $800 budgeted (this will probably be more.. I can’t seem to find anything I like in our price range that fits nicely with my ring)

Total amount we still owe – about $15,080 (and I feel like I’m missing things..ugh)

We’ve made about $2800 in deposits/payments so far.  This was supposed to be a $10k wedding.. haha

** My dress was paid for by my mother & grandmother (and my grandmother is covering alterations), which is why it wasn’t included

Op, your total is misleading, it says 

 

Total:$11683/$9833

But really, $9833 is what you’ve already paid, whereas your chart is showing what’s remaining.
Handy tho, thanks!

Mine is in September but I’ll play.

I made my own excel spreadsheets, but I also use wedding wire.

Total amount left:

Venue (rental, open bar, tables/chairs, linens): $3020

Food: $2500 (estimate)

Cake: $500

DJ: $500

Transportation: $300

Hair/Makeup: $700

Hotel: $400

Floral: $900 or so

Officiant: $225

According to weddingwire I have already paid $8,000 and owe $15,000.  UGH!  Well that includes everything (rings, rehearsal dinner, my trip to Vegas, boudoir photos, shoes).  Of that remaining FI and I are paying about $6900, his mother is paying $1500 and my parents are paying about $6600.

@BreezyBride24:  My fiance is a foody so most of the budget is going to the caterer….there were cheaper options but he wouldn’t budge on the quality of food he expected for our wedding. Also, instead of a typical wedding hall we rented out a rooftop loft so we are decorating it ourselves. FYI below is the break down:

Venue: $3,500 (deposit $1,750)

Caterer including rentals and DOC charge: $16,429.66 (deposit $6,656) 

Flowers: $689 (local florist)

Decorations: $996

Cake: $900 (deposit $450)

Officiant: $400 (deposit $200)

DJ & Uplighting: $1,700 (deposit $425)

Photographer: $963 (deposit $321)

Souvenors: $130

Champagne: $500
