helping brides create beautiful weddings without breaking the bank

wedding for $5,000 or less

A friend of E & I gave me this book a few weeks ago. How To Have An Elegant Wedding for $5,000 Or Less has lots of great ideas on how to save money for your wedding! Most of which include using fake flowers and cutting your guest list. Completely not helpful to me thus far. I read the first few chapters and then got frustrated so I gave it to my mom to read. Maybe she can get something useful out of it.

  • Oh my gosh! You are going to be fine. You need to start with ditching the Knot. That sh*t is not going to help you with a small budget, and it’s just going to stress you out. Then take a deep breath, think to yourself “$10,000 is actually a heck of a lot of money in the real world” and start thinking outside the box. There are so many stupid wedding things you can ditch. Figure out your prioritys and go to it. It is going to be awesome.

    For serious, don’t let them get you down. (And don’t spend your emergancy savings!)

  • Don’t be stressed, my budget is only 5,000, and everything is going fine.
    (and for sure I will not be having fake flowers at my wedding, nor will I be cutting the guest list, its at 100 now, but our venue can hold 120)

  • p.s. great blog, I’m adding you to my blog roll

  • Reasons why I love this blog? Budgets, weddings and reading. All good things. Oh, and you would rather save your 4k than spend it. 🙂
