James Andrews, wedding finance editor at money.co.uk, said: "When creating a wedding budget, it's a good idea to separate pre-wedding expenses such as bride and/or groom attire and wedding rings, from on the day expenses such as food and drink and extras like hair and makeup. This way you're less likely to forget to include little extras that tend to add up and you're able to clearly see everything you will be spending on the whole event. Our wedding budget planner separates expenses into the above categories, saving you the hassle and helping you do your wedding on a budget!.
"Although saving up for a wedding can seem like a laborious task, there are simple steps you can take to make cuts without compromising on your dream day. The wedding budget planner page has several tips and tricks so you can painlessly cut the cost of your nuptials with minimal compromise."
