Spreadsheets are the most popular tool for planning a wedding.
They’re easy to use, extremely flexible, and support seamless collaboration with your future spouse and wedding planner.
You can use a spreadsheet to track invitations, to-dos, and of course your budget and expenses. This is critical because wedding expenses can easily skyrocket without careful planning and tracking.
Here at Tiller, we help people keep a clear view of their money in spreadsheets
We offer the premium Foundation Template, which includes sheets for budgeting, tracking spending, and tracking net worth.
But we also share a number of free templates built and supported by our Tiller Community.
One recent weekend I was inspired to build a Community template to help people save time and money while planning a wedding (or other events).
The free template for Google Sheets can be used on its own.
But if you choose to supercharge it with Tiller, the template will automatically pull in all your wedding spending, keeping your wedding budget current while saving you hours of data entry.
This template is currently the only automated wedding budget planner of its kind.
Included with the Wedding Budget and Planner Spreadsheet
The Wedding Budget and Planner template includes five primary sheets:
- Summary Sheet, with a wedding countdown, a quick budget summary, a to-do checklist, and a pie chart visualizing expenses by category (this chart updates automatically with Tiller).
- Guest List Organizer for tracking Guest Counts, Budget Estimates per Guest, Rehearsal Dinner Guests, Wedding & Reception Guests, Gifts for Guests, Invite and RSVP status, and more.
- Table Seating Planner – so your divorced aunt and uncle don’t get seated at the same table.
- Expense Categories – Create your own custom expense categories so you can track your budget, your way.
- Transactions Sheet – If you use Tiller, this automatically tracks all your wedding spending. Otherwise, you can manually input your transactions.
- Balances Sheet – Showing how much you have in each linked bank account and the balance on each linked credit card.

(My wedding planner template is actually built on the Foundation Template – I just hid a bunch of the sheets!)
