Win a FREE wedding or celebration cake from your favorite bakery!


Publisher Globe Pequot Press is hosting a FREE wedding cake contest! All you have to do to enter is “like” GPP’s Facebook page and fill in a super-quick entry.

The contest is in celebration of Rachel Eddey’s humorous memoir, Running of the Bride: My Frenzied Quest to Tie the Knot, Tear Up the Dance Floor, and Figure Out Why My 15 Minutes of Fame Included Commercial Breaks. I just received a copy in the mail to review from the publisher and I can't wait to dig in!

About Running of the Bride:

When Rachel’s handsome studio exec boyfriend proposes on the Sex and the City movie set, she can’t fathom the dizzying adventure ahead. Accepting a once-in-a-lifetime venue deal helps their budget but puts them on a crash course to get married in just four months—and time isn’t their only challenge. They battle a wacky host of vendors, including a hair stylist who fakes a car accident and a makeup artist channeling Marilyn Manson, all while testing their love amid tastings and tulle.

Using her nervous energy productively, Rachel enters every contest she can find, winning diamond earrings, a honeymoon, a photographer, and two wedding gowns. Her pop culture obsession lands the wedding party on two hit reality TV shows. There’s just one problem as the clock ticks down: Her staunch perfectionism and fear of dancing threaten to derail everything. She has to redefine perfect and embrace the mistakes—or risk losing it all.

Win a $100 Sears Gift Card!


Thanks to reader Autumn for the heads up on this! I just wanted to let you know that Sears is doing a giveaway for budget-conscious brides through their community site MySears. They're giving away a $100 Sears giftcard. You can enter by visiting the MySears site and leave a comment answering their question, “what bridal gifts will you be registering for this year?”

Amber Housley Inspired

You may remember me posting about this inspiring workshop I was so honored to be a part of back in March, and I'm excited to say I'm joining the fabulous Amber Housley along with Sara E. Rose and Courtney Dial onto the next stop on the AH Inspired tour in Tampa, Florida! If you are a woman with a creative business or a creative woman who wants to start her own business, this workshop is for YOU! Attendees of the Nashville workshop had wonderful things to say… check out some of their glowing reviews here.


The workshop has been expanded to include an extra half day of inspiration, motivation and practical business-building tips AND everyone who signs up by the early bird deadline  (MONDAY, April 30) will get a bonus one-on-one consultation with the fabulously savvy Amber. I hope that if you're looking for that boost to get you on the road to making your dreams into plans that you'll consider joining us at The Postcard Inn!




I hope you like these budget savvy links and deals! If you come across a great deal, contest or coupon that you'd like to share with your fellow BSB readers, feel free to email us at jessica{at}! Hope you all have a great weekend, see ya next week! xoxo
