Cheers to Ten Years of The Budget Savvy Bride!
Today is a momentous day for BSB — we're celebrating TEN YEARS of publishing budget savvy wedding goodness to help brides and grooms all over the world plan a meaningful and beautiful day on a realistic budget! Over the years, we've shared features from countless couples who've planned their weddings on budgets far lower than the suggested “averages” you see published by traditional wedding media. It *is* possible to plan a wedding on a budget that reflects your values, looks great, and delights your guests without spending the equivalent of a downpayment on a home.
Over the last ten years
From the beginning, we've understood that today's couples have different goals and priorities in mind for their lives, and we've done our best to educate, equip, and empower you with the tools, advice, and inspiration you need to bring your wedding dreams to life. We've shared hundreds of real weddings from all over the country– allowing you to browse by state, budget, and colors.
We've brought you loads of free printables and doable DIY wedding projects to inspire you to take on aspects of the big day yourself. These little projects make for more personal touches for your day while also saving you money!
We've partnered with some of the best brands and bridal suppliers to bring you major wedding deals and discounts on everything from your dress to your flowers! We also recently released our very first book– The Budget-Savvy Wedding Planner & Organizer– another huge achievement in bringing the information needed to couples around the world!
More Budget Wedding Goodness to Come!
Behind the scenes, we're working on a big redesign and re-organization of the site to make the content even easier to navigate and peruse. We want to make it easier for you to find the information and resources you're looking for. This project is currently underway and we hope to launch the update in the coming months!
We're working hard this year to ensure that we have real, beautiful, budget-friendly weddings from each of the 50 states! If you or someone you know planned a wedding on a budget of $20k or less in the following states, please send them our way! We want to create the ultimate resource for all the couples who are planning around the country.
