Get Realistic Wedding Inspiration

The Budget Savvy Bride is the only wedding blog that includes a budget breakdown with every real wedding. We want to help prove that beautiful weddings are possible on a budget. We believe the “average” budgets reported by the mainstream media are misleading and most likely false. You can easily have a beautiful wedding day for less than half of the reported averages, and our real wedding features aim to prove this!

We believe that it’s super important for couples to start off their marriage on solid financial footing. A key part of this is planning a wedding day they can actually afford. Need help setting a realistic budget for your wedding? Read this post.

Planning a Wedding You Can Actually Afford

Whether you opt to follow some of our savvy wedding tips or come up with some of your own, there are many ways to save money on your big day and still have a lovely event. From choosing an off-peak wedding date to finding an alternative wedding venue, there are many choices you can make to slash your costs significantly.

Many of our real wedding features feature DIY projects and often times the couple gets some wedding help from family and friends in lieu of hiring professionals. One thing all our savvy wedding features seem to have in common: the couples focus on what matters most and place their marriage as a higher priority than their wedding celebration.
