After scouring Pinterest for months without anything that screamed ‘us’  we and I finally decided […]

TLC’s Four Weddings has become an addiction in our home. With the ability to view 4 weddings in under an hour and see what has worked well and what hasn’t for brides, my fiance and I have been taking diligent notes on how to keep our guests happy. While I may or may not agree […]

Here’s an easy project for some super cute DIY pomander balls. My maid of honor helped me create these, and I’m getting double duty usage from them since I displayed them on tables at my bridal shower then plan on using them to hang in the windows of the church!      DIY Pomander Balls […]

Costs for a candy bar can add up pretty fast, but a little upfront planning can save you a lot of money in the long run.  One site I stumbled across estimated most candy bars run roughly $5 per guest. FIVE DOLLARS! If you have 100+ guests, that’s easily over $500 which I’d say is […]

After watching countless episodes of Four Weddings, and seeing all the rave reviews of brides who had photo booths at their weddings, I was dead set I wanted one for our big day.  Nick on the other hand, wasn’t so enthusiastic and needed some convincing.  It wasn’t until we went to a wedding this past […]

Last week I stumbled upon a wedding planning ideas website from none other than The Dollar Tree! I thought it was pretty nifty and packed full of great ideas so I have to share! Not only does the site have all sorts of different how-to’s but also check lists of what supplies you need and […]

As a ‘Boarderline Extreme Couponer’, my favorite newest site that I’ve stumbled across is LikeTwice.com. It’s a site where you can either buy or sell preloved name brand clothing (Who couldn’t use some extra cash for their wedding by clearing out their closets of things you no longer wear? )   But here’s the best […]
