We want to officially welcome you to The Budget Savvy Bride!

Chances are if you've stumbled upon this website,
you're probably engaged and looking for ways to save money on your wedding.

Well, you've come to the right place, sister!

What We Believe

Here at The Budget Savvy Bride, we believe that your marriage is more important than your wedding.

This stance makes up a big part of who we are and is a huge reason why we choose to be creative, thrifty and wise when it comes to spending money on a wedding. We don't believe in accruing a mountain of debt over one day… we want you and your new hubby to start your life of married bliss in a financially responsible way.

We've all heard the statistics about divorces, and one of the major contributing factors in an overwhelming number of failed marriages is MONEY. So our goal here at BSB is to help brides everywhere find ways to save money on their weddings!

Take a look at our manifesto… this is how we describe ourselves, and what we think our brides and readers are like, too…

If you find yourself nodding your head and thinking, “YES, that's me!” then you are definitely in the right place!

What to Expect from The Budget Savvy Bride

In addition to sharing our amazing DIY projects and real budget wedding features, we also share posts from an expert point of view or to offer recommended resources and info about our fabulous sponsors – please note: we personally review each and every advertiser who supports our blog to make sure their product or service is relevant and helpful to our readers.

We occasionally host giveaways for fun and useful wedding products! Because brides on a budget LOVE free stuff, right?? Obviously.

No matter what, The Budget Savvy Bride's commitment to you is this:

  • We will never share a product, service, deal, freebie, coupon, etc that we haven’t used (or wouldn't use) ourselves.
  • BSB won’t ever knowingly point you in the direction of something that isn’t truly representative of the budget savvy brand.
  • We won't allow sponsorships, affiliates or any other form of advertising — paid or unpaid — to influence the opinions expressed on this site.
