Weddings On a Budget

Written by on June 6, 2012 in Relationships - No comments | Print this page


You’re engaged! Now for the exciting part: the planning (more like the stressful part).  If you are like the rest of us, you most likely can’t afford a professional wedding planner.  After showing off your engagement ring to all your family and friends, the real leg work of planning the wedding you’ve been dreaming of since you were a little girl begins.  Planning such a special event is no easy task and you will find out you have to finalize every small detail more so than you would like and have the time for.  Here are a few wedding staples I came across:

She has more that like this on her website.










If you are going to be cheap in one area of the wedding, do no be cheap on the           photographer.  You want to be able to show beautiful pictures to your grandkids and great-grandkids.

If you are on a tight budget, then today is your lucky day.  This dress on the left is only $149.99














Okay, so this has no relevance to you as the bride, but this one is for you ladies attending weddings in the near future. offer designer clothes for a fraction of the price.  If you are okay with the “ick” factor since these are rentals, this is the website for you.  The retail price of the pink dress on the left is $1060 and you can rent it for $150.  Designer is Moschino.



I’m pretty exhausted just coming up with a very short list to help you with of some parts of the wedding planning, can’t imagine how you feel.  Good luck!
