Open up a separate checking account to keep track of your funds.
This will help you stay organized throughout the wedding planning process and you will know where you are at in your budget at all times. If you really want to stay on budget start the account with less money than your top dollar budget. This way when you want to start upgrading to premium linens, or adding on appetizers you can quickly access your wedding or event account and know where you stand.
