The Budget Savvy Bride

Tim and I met in Pittsburgh (where we both went to college) and neither of our families live here (which sucks…a lot). It seems like it’s a fairly common situation for people who meet their spouses in college to have family all over the map, but that doesn’t make it any less rough when it’s […]

I just know y’all are going to love this eclectic and colorful church wedding! This couple was able to pull of a fabulous day on an amazing budget, and I just love all the colorful details. The bride kept such a level head about things and asked for help from family and friends to pull […]

Goodness gracious, has it been a whirlwind of a fortnight for the husband-to-be and me! Pre-hubs, as I’ve become accustomed to calling him now that we’re just two months away from our wedding day (Eek!), just started a new position in a city much closer to our friends, family, and wedding venue and vendors. We […]

Of course, my frugal nature sometimes limits my options in this area, but thanks to our friends at Invitations by Dawn, […]

registry favorites summer 2014

With all of the fabulous mid-year sales happening right now, (Nordstrom, Macy’s, etc) I thought what better time to share some wedding registry items that I’m currently crushing on? Each of these items has been sent to me to test out and I have to say I’m obsessed with all three of them. They’re a little splurgy, […]

It’s that time of the month again where I provide some invitation inspiration, along with free wedding templates exclusive to BSB’s!

Hello ladies, I’ve got a cheap and delightful craft for you this week–wine bottle table numbers. The best part of this idea is that you don’t have to buy anything, assuming you (or people you know) drink lots of wine. And if you’re planning a wedding, you’re probably already drinking lots of wine. Here’s how we […]
