Twenty Ten has come to an end... what a year it was! | The Budget Savvy Bride
The Budget Savvy Bride

A little late on my year-in-review post, but better late than never! Here’s some of the exciting things that has happened with BSB in the last year!

This year BSB was chosen as one of the Top 100 Wedding Blogs to follow in 2010 by BrideTide (and just found out we were chosen again for 2011!)

We were honored to be invited to be a member of the illustrious B-List, a consortium of the top wedding bloggers in the industry. We attended the fab conference in Washington, D.C. where we got to meet some of our long-time blog crushes and made some dear friends.

I made a trip to New York City where I made my television debut in a media tour sponsored by RetailMeNot! I completed over 25 interviews- giving tips and tricks on how to save money on your wedding. I also appeared on a local Nashville show twice to discuss budget-savvy wedding tips as well as practical wedding registry items!

We were chosen as a finalist for the Best Budget Blog in Wedding Channel’s Bridal Blog Awards for the 2nd year in a row, and were named ‘Editor’s Pick’ for a 2nd time as well!


My wedding was featured in Nashville’s HER magazine, and the blog made it’s editorial debut with a mention in Southern Weddings Vol 3.

We hosted tons of giveaways, including $500 in flowers from Bloomsbythebox.com and a fully custom dress from CocoMyles! We love being able to offer fab freebies to our readers!

We introduced SEVEN fabulous real budget brides who are sharing their wedding planning journeys with the community! Our first bride got married on New Year’s Eve 2010!! What a way to end the year! I love running this blog and sharing ideas, tips and tricks with all of you! Thanks for making it so FUN! Here’s to another great year of BSB!
