helping brides create beautiful weddings without breaking the bank

SO excited to introduce a new group of budget savvy bride bloggers to y'all! As always, this is one of the hardest things I have to do because everyone's ideas and plans seem so great, but these girls just really stood out to me! Each of them is unique for a number of reasons and some of their budget challenges will be tougher than others but I think you'll be so inspired by what these gals can do to make their dream wedding happen on a budget!

So, without further ado…



New Bride Bloggers

Krysta is a teacher living in Alberta, CA. She and her fiance Brandon are planning a destination wedding in the Dominican Republic! They plan to use their budget of $13,000 to pay for the entire wedding and at-home reception! Can't wait to see how they pull it off!

Lyssah and her fiance Cameron are both professionals and ministry workers living in Nashville, TN. They are planning their spring wedding with a max budget of $6,000 (but hoping to pull it off for $5,000!) And get this- their theme is an outdoor, eclectic High-Tea/Victorian scheme (think Downtown Abby and Alice and Wonderland had a baby).  How cool does that sound? Can't wait to see her DIY projects!!

Heather and her fiancé Matt live in Atlanta and are planning their spring wedding on a $7,000 budget. Heather's plans include alot of DIY to make her navy and yellow rustic wedding happen! I love the color scheme and can't wait to see how she pulls it all together!

 Renae and her fiancé Kyle live in New Jersey and are planning their super glam and gorgeous Miami wedding on a budget of $10,000! Most of the weddings we've seen here on BSB have been more rustic so I'm super excited to see their glamorous blush pink and champagne affair come together. Check out her inspiration on pinterest! Aren't they a beautiful couple? You can see more of their lovely engagement pictures here!

Denise and her fiance Wasim live in Massachusetts and are planning their carnival themed wedding festivities on a budget of $8,000 (although they are hoping to keep it as low as $5,000!)  Denise is excited to show that the popular and often opulent carnival theme can be done on a smaller budget!


Thanks to everyone who applied to be a bride blogger! I hope you enjoy reading the planning tales from each of these new gals! Please give them a warm BSB welcome 🙂
