Well the day is finally here...I am planning a wedding! Yikes!!! Call me crazy but I never had any intentions of hiring a wedding planner. For one I want to be involved in every single aspect of our wedding and two I knew it would not be in our budget. When you hear wedding on a budget you automatically think cheap. To me having a wedding on a budget doesn't mean being cheap at all it means being smart. Even if we had the thousands of dollars to spend on a wedding I would never actually do it. Why? Hmm probably because it is only one day in our lives where we want to show our family and friends how much we love each other and want to spend the rest of our lives together...
After this one day will people really remember what you had on your tables or what designer dress you were wearing? Answer is NO! In fact nobody will ever know the designer of your dress unless you had it printed on your invites. I've been to so many weddings and cannot remember what they had on the tables even if my life depended on it. Truth is your wedding should just be a little taste of who you and your better half are about, not how much money you or your parents have. With that said my fiance and I will be funding our own wedding and on a budget. We are not ashamed to say we are having a wedding on a budget because this will be a glimpse of who we are, what we like and how smart we can be when it comes to hosting an awesome party that shows how much we love each other.
So follow me on my journey as I blog my way through a year of wedding planning, I will try my best to post a blog each Wedding Wednesday but as it gets closer to the big day that may not be happening.
I have added the MM Wedding tab to my site for any companies and vendors that would like to work with me and be featured on my blog!
Are you a bride to be also on a budget if so please comment with your info I would love to follow back! :)
