This post is in response to some comments that we’ve gotten over time from our friends who will like to have an idea of how much a wedding costs.
Tolu and I being quite techy started off creating a spreadsheet for our wedding budget. Putting down cost helps so that you are not deceiving yourself being overly happy (low cost) or giving yourself a headache (high cost) over arbitrary costs. We used Google Docs so that we can collaborate and edit at the same time.
Here is a blank (no price) Wedding Expenses Spreadsheet to help you get started and give you a general idea of the things a couple will usually have to buy. We recognise that there are different types of wedding planning e.g. couple bearing ALL the cost; couple bearing some cost and family of couple also being involved; so you can tweak it as required.
Luke 14:28 “For which of you, intending to build a tower, sitteth not down first, and counteth the cost, whether he have sufficient to finish it?”
