Comments on: Budget saving ideas… http://thebudgetsavvybride.com/budget-saving-ideas/ helping brides create beautiful weddings without breaking the bank Mon, 27 Apr 2015 21:46:00 +0000 hourly 1 By: Amy http://thebudgetsavvybride.com/budget-saving-ideas/#comment-633 Sat, 20 Dec 2008 19:45:54 +0000 http://thebudgetsavvybride.com/?p=19#comment-633 I am doing my own makeup. But years and years of theatre makeup work is my calling card. If I have time my eyeshadow is a work of art always. So, I think that it’s okay to do makeup yourself.. most girls do it everyday anyway.

And sephora is my downfall. I spend too much money there.

And I have been reading your past blogs. And I am officially smitten. We have alot in common.

A lot of budget brides think a planner is too costly, or that it is something they do not need. This couldn’t be further from the truth. Planners have a history with vendors, and usually get a discount for bringing in business. Even without a discount, a planner can finagle a price down to be within a bride’s budget. Not only that, but planners are a wealth of craftiness for putting a lot of glam into a low budget wedding. Even if you don’t hire a planner for the whole shebang, having a planner to coordinate the day of is such a big help. It is always best to trust a professional to direct everything so you and your family members & friends can relax. I love your blog and ideas! I would like to offer you a 50% discount on my services if you do not have planner already – I absolutely love helping create memories for every bride, regardless of budget! ( Not to mention I have coordinated several weddings at Cool Springs House, so I’m familiar with the venue)Good luck!

We saved a TON by having a Friday night wedding!!!! (Sundays are the next cheapest, with Saturdays being the most expensive.)

@kay*- I definitely see your point on the music thing… perhaps we’ll be able to fit it into the budget- we’ll just have to see as everything unfolds. But I definitely love the idea of having a early afternoon wedding. E’s sister gave me the idea for a “brunch” wedding. I freakin’ love brunch so I’m definitely considering it! :)
