Wedding Budget Tips - Stay organized

Wedding Budget Tip #49:

Save your receipts and stay organized!

There are so many things involved with planning a wedding. So many things to keep track of, so many details to coordinate, so many people to manage. It's so important to remain organized, not just for your own sanity, but also for the sake of your budget!

Be sure to save all your receipts for anything you purchase for your wedding and keep your spending tracked in a spreadsheet. Keeping good records of this information is key to seeing how much you've spent, how much you have left to spend, and will ultimately help keep you on budget.

The hard part? Deciding not to spend more money if you've already spent your allocated budget. That takes willpower and determination! Just remember to focus on what matters most and ask yourself if you really need those extras that will take you over budget.
