The Breakdown: Wedding Budget of $5,000

Wedding Budget CalculatorIf you are planning to stay within a wedding budget of $5000 then you will want to start with figuring out how to alot your $5,000 among the various wedding expense categories.

Figuring out how to distribute wedding budget funds is easy with a wedding budgeting tool that let’s you adjust what percentage should go towards each category of your wedding budget.

The wedding budget spreadsheet we used puts 6% of your budget towards miscellaneous expenses such as wedding license fee and tipping by default. We thought that was excessive, so we simply changed it to 2% and added the remaining 8% to another category that we felt needed more funds than given by default.

Using that easy to use wedding planning tool, we came up with the following $5,000 wedding budget breakdown.

$5,000 Wedding Budget Sample Breakdown

Reception.........................$2,000
Dress and Other Attire............$  750
Photography / Videography.........$  500
Music / DJ........................$  350
Floral / Decorations..............$  400
Stationery........................$  300

Transportation....................$  100
Gifts / Favors....................$  100
Ceremony..........................$   50
Miscellaneous.....................$  100

If some of those numbers are kind of hard to take, you can, of course, customize your own wedding budget breakdown for whatever wedding funds you have at your disposal using the wedding budget spreadsheet we mentioned earlier. Also, you can get wedding budget saving tips and advice from the bride who figured out how to save $22,000 on her own wedding from that bride’s website Wedding Planning on a Budget.
