Wonderful Weddings // On a Budget

My first wedding anniversary is coming up later this month (23rd February) so it's getting me all nostalgic, thinking about our day and what I was doing this time last year....panicking - sheer decent in to a panic ridden spiral!!

We got engaged in December 2011 and started planning more or less straight away as we had already said we didn't want a long engagement (we'd been together for 9 years by then so talk of weddings had come up from time to time!). I knew I didn't want to spend a fortune on a wedding, for a number of reasons:

  1. We aren't rich!
  2. A wedding is just one day - it's the marriage I would rather put all my efforts into
  3. I believed that you can have a wonderful day and not get into debt by spending above your means
  4. I'm a crafty person so wanted to make as much as I possibly could!
I thought it might be helpful to share my experiences of the build up, where I sourced things, how we kept to a budget and what it was like to be a bride! So I'm starting a little series looking at all the planning and hopefully sharing some tutorials along the way. I'll be starting off with the basics of planning a wedding, so check back soon to read my tips!
