This sheet does not includes honeymoon expenses, and don’t forget to include taxes and tips in the total amounts. Also, please note that these percentages are general, and can be varied if one section is a higher priority to you than another. For example, if you plan to have a block of hotel rooms reserved for your guests, that could go into miscellaneous or be borrowed from another percentage — just make sure it always equals 100 percent.
