helping brides create beautiful weddings without breaking the bank



So sorry that I didn't get my favorite links post up yesterday, y'all. This has been a CRAZY week! Yesterday I was glued to the TV all day watching the manhunt for the 2nd Boston Bombing suspect, like many others across the country. Weeks like this remind me how lucky I am to have such wonderful people in my life and makes me want to call all my loved ones and tell them how important they are to me, ya know? Sometimes we just need to take a break and focus on what matters most. I hope you're all enjoying time with family, friends and your fiancés this weekend!

I was lucky to attend some Bridal Market events and happened to sneak a peek at this huge Tiffany&Co set up as I was running around the city 🙂 Super fun, right? You can follow my adventures on Instagram if you like!

And now onto some of my favorite links of the week:


  • I'm seriously in awe of Sara's inspiration board skills. If you're in need of some wedding inspiration, you must subscribe to Burnett's Boards! This yellow and slate board was my fave this week!
  • I highly recommend this post on setting your wedding budget from Bridal Musings! So informative and helpful (no matter if you're in the USA or the UK!)
  • Love the mossy accents in the florals in this gorgeous wedding over on Borrowed & Bleu!
  • Adore the dreamy feel of this wedding with tons of airy babys breath over on Glamour & Grace!

Today I also want to share a link to this fundraising page for a newlywed couple who were both injured in the bombings on Monday. I know we're all on a budget here, but skipping your Starbucks on Monday and donate $5 or whatever you can to help cover their mounting medical bills as a result from this tragic event. My thoughts and prayers are with them as they recover. Love never fails. Love conquers all. Spread Love.

Alright ladies, thanks for bearing with me this week! Be sure to sign up for our upcoming newsletter for more budget savvy inspiration and tips! 🙂

Have a wonderful weekend and be sure to give your fiance a BIG smooch and tell him how much you LOVE him!
