How Much Will My Wedding Cost?
This is a common question and one that is usually worked out by slaving over a long list of inventory with a pen and a calculator. It can and often does take hours and leaves you feeling drained and stressed out! In fact, this happens a lot. Here's my story (in a nutshell):
Last month, my good friend was two weeks away from her own wedding and she was so stressed she looked ill. I asked her what was wrong and she told me that the costs had spiralled out of control. She kept finding so many "extras" and she was worried she might not be able to afford it all.
She said calculating all the different costs for everything was so complicated and she had sheets of paper with cost figures all over the place. She was in such disarray but didn't know how to get organized. I said I might be able to help her there with a simple spreadsheet to keep all the itinerary together.
So I set to work with all her haphazard figures and created this simple spreadsheet in Microsoft Excel. The result was simple yet so powerful it brought all her expenses together and calculated the overall cost. After doing plenty of research I found tons of those "hidden" extras that cause wedding costs to spiral and factored them all into my spreadsheet. Now my friend had a simple, yet effective solution to her problems.
She was able to sit down with me and the spreadsheet and work out where she could make savings. It organized the entire budget and made it manageable. She went on to re-calculate every aspect of her Big Day and saved herself many hundreds of dollars off the overall cost!
That spreadsheet was the prototype for my latest, updated and further simplified Wedding Budget Calculator. It's available to help you organize your wedding financial budget and act as a checklist to make sure you don't miss any of those hidden "extras" too!

A Solution to your Problem
The biggest problem when trying to arrange a wedding is keeping a watch on spiralling costs as more and more hidden extras sneak up on you. It can be a nightmare trying to keep track of all the different aspects of the big day, especially when you keep finding new things with price tags that you weren't prepared for!
This simple yet comprehensive checklist and calculator covers all those hidden details that you may not have thought of. It also allows you to cost each item and see the subtotals at a glance.
So if the costs look like they're getting too high, you can look for cheaper alternatives before you get committed to an excessively expensive outlay. All the costs are right there for you to see so nothing gets missed.
How to Use the Wedding Budget Calculator
Using this calculator is simplicity itself. Here are some screenshots so you can see graphically how it looks (I've circled the new entries in the images to make them stand out. That won't happen when you use it for real, of course):
This is how the empty boxes look before you start adding your own figures.
Enter the first price (in this example it's for the bride's ring) in the format: 4200.00 (there's no need to include the $ sign). See how the "Sub Total" field automatically updates itself.
Now enter the next price (for the groom's ring) and see how the "Sub Total" field automatically updates itself with the new total.
Now enter the third price (for the rings' insurance) and see how the "Sub Total" field automatically updates itself with the new total.
If you found a cheaper insurance quote, simply delete the price you already entered...
...and enter in the new price (for insurance). Notice the "Sub Total" field automatically updates itself to reflect the new total.
Here's how the finished box looks without my red highlighting.
...and here's what the grand "Total" box looks like at the foot of the page! It will keep up with the sub totals from all the boxes as you complete them to give you an overall cost total.
If there are any fields that you don't need to add a price to or that don't apply to your wedding plans, simply leave them blank.
What is the Catch?
There's no catch, really. This calculator is not for free, but it's on sale at a crazy low price so you don't get scared off. For under five bucks, you can download this calculator and start using it right away.
It's a simple Excel spreadsheet created to make your life easy. Sure, you can open Excel on your computer and build one of these spreadsheets for yourself. If you have the time, know how and patience.
Or you can spend a mere $4.95 (yes, that really is ALL it costs)... and download this one.
The time that using this calculator would save you is easily of much greater value than the few dollars it will cost you. The saving on the cost of your wedding by highlighting those hidden extra costs and allowing you to work around them is infinitely greater value!
Here's a Reality Check
I'm not making any grandiose claims that this calculator is anything other than what it is. It is merely a simple spreadsheet that adds up all the individual costs of all the inventory of a wedding that you input into it and gives you a running grand total.
It will save you time. It will save you hassle. It can potentially save you thousands of dollars that you may have had to spend on items you weren't otherwise prepared for! Or it can simply tell you what you want to know, which is how much your wedding will cost!
Remember, you are probably counting down the days to the big happy event and its getting closer. I'm guessing you're in need of a cheap, easy to use and accurate means of calculating the cost of that big day and you're going to need it pretty soon, right?
Well, here's the beauty of the digital product: You can download it and start using it almost right away. In a few minutes from now, you can be using this really simple calculator and saving yourself a big headache!
Why Should I Buy This Instead of a Free Web Based Calculator?
Sure you can use a web based calculator for free. Go ahead, there are some that are actually pretty OK. But there are some considerations:
- Say you've just spent a half hour entering all the prices you have into the web based calculator, you're maybe three quarters of the way done and you realize you need to go out at that moment. Can you save your work? NO! If the Internet connection is severed, you lose all your work
- Say you complete the form and print it out. Great, you have your calculations done and you have your printed checklist. Say you discover a new service that does some of the things cheaper or offers better service. If you want to use this service, you'll need to change maybe a dozen or so prices in the form. Well, you either write it out and do the calculation yourself (longhand) or you have to go into the web based calculator and enter all the details all over again. Think how much of your valuable time all that annoying repetition of work would waste!
- Say you're out with your laptop and you find a great new store. You want to change some prices but there's no WI-FI access. You have to write them down the old fashioned way (and still have to re-enter ALL the prices to the web based calculator when you get home)
Sure, a web-based calculator may be free (no monetary cost to you) but it's far from free when you consider all the time you'll waste re-entering all the data every time you want to change a few things. "Free" doesn't sound such a great deal now. Does it?
Why You Should Buy My Calculator
When you buy my calculator, you're getting a product that is yours to keep. It's always on your computer or laptop when you need it, wherever you need it. Here are the advantages over a free web based calculator:

- When you complete it and save, the data stays saved
- You can tinker with the item prices as you want, change individual prices as you need to without having to re-enter existing prices
- Future proof. You get free updates for the life of the product
