I’m loving the wedding signage and cut outs trend that’s hot right now (Check out Bianca’s Post here for ideas) but I was a little intimidated by trying to cut out shapes myself for signs free handed or trying to take on painting every letter. One option could be to purchase already made signs & […]

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 […]

Did you know you can search for stuff on the internet by not just a written description but by photos & images?!?! As I’ve said before, I’m not the most tech savvy bride on the planet.  Recently, I learned about a wonderful little tool called Google Image Search.  Maybe you’ve already used it, but for […]

In my last post, Adventures in Dress Shopping, I shared with you I had a wedding dress from my previous marriage that I absolutely loved. Well, I still have that wedding dress. It’s the one thing from my past marriage that I’ve hated to see go, and it’s been hanging in my closet ever since. […]

The coupon clipping, the barging hunting, the wheel’n and deal’n…everything that I had saved in other areas of my wedding planning allowed me to have a hefty dress budget. At the time I went dress shopping, I didn’t think having the perfect dress was all that  important to me, I figured I’d find something I’d […]

Part of being a Budget Savvy Bride is keeping bridesmaids expenses in check.  In 2011 Mint.com estimated the total cost of being a bridesmaid was $1,695.  Ouch! While that seems like an insanely high number, I can believe it! When I was maid of honor in a wedding a few years ago, I came close […]

Realizing I’m roughly 5 months away from my wedding day, I’ve been on the hunt recently for wedding invitations and other paper goods.  One of my favorite sites has been Minted.com.  They offer a large selection of anything you could possibly need or want in hundreds of designs!
