How To Plan An Amazing Wedding on a Budget

Hi All,

This is a post I’ve wanted to make since Scott and I got engaged but I was so busy with school, work, wedding planning, and life. Now, I have some time to sit and chat with you all for a bit — even if it is almost four years later. I figured I break everything up so it’s easier to read. In this post, we’ll discuss finding the right venue. By the way, all of the photos except for the gifs are photos from our wedding by the talented, Victoria Velastegui.

The Venue

Our theme was rustic-chic. I looked into barns, farm houses, etc. I particularly looked into this barn, and this farm house, as well as country houses within close proximity to us. The woman with whom I spoke at the Newland Barn about renting it, laughed when I asked her if there was any availability within a year of our engagement.

4 Budget-Friendly Places to Shop

shopping on a budget

Hi, All!

I thought I’d write this post because I’ve had a few people ask me where I get things I wear. When I tell them, they’re in disbelief and I don’t understand why. I’ve been shopping second hand stores for the past four years or so.¬†Before I was married, I had a bad habit of not having a specific amount in mind before shopping. Now, I’ve given myself a decent budget which allows me to choose wisely instead of buying everything in sight. You don’t have to break the bank to look great. I’ve read horror stories of people working themselves into debt behind shopping. It’s never that serious.
