This estimator provides the average cost of a wedding based on the answers to your questions and the spending of other couples getting married. Your wedding cost estimate takes into account where you live, where you are getting married, how many guests you plan to have, the style of your wedding, your primary wedding color, and the products and services you plan to purchase. You'll also be able to print it out or download a spreadsheet of your results as a wedding budget template. It is the best way to start a wedding budget, truly better than a wedding budget calculator alone.
