Every bride wants to have change leftover in her pocket after the big day, right? I did. It's easy to get carried away when shopping for your wedding. Everything seems so necessary, so essential. It's important to keep in mind where your budget is and how to maintain it. There's books written on the topic and so many resources for brides on a budget. Here are some of my favorites:
The Budget Savvy Bride: This blog is written by Jessica, a former bride, and features real weddings with wallet friendly details. Some brides even provide a breakdown of their budget which is helpful when you need real world numbers, especially at the beginning of your planning.
Broke Ass Bride: The title is so kitschy cute, and this blog offers so much more in addition to it's funny perspective. Dana and her team blog about making the most of what you have and they provide practical advice that cannot be beat.
Affordable Wedding Invitations : This is our selection of affordable wedding invitations. We did some research into what our customers think of as affordable. Opinions varied drastically, but we were able to determine that invitations that are less than $1.50 per card is generally budget friendly. Some are even as low as $0.77 each. These are all personalized and include the printing. Not too shabby. But, we're always listening, so let us know what you think of as budget friendly!
