When I started this blog, my primary goal was to help people save money on their weddings. Since then, I’ve evolved into more of a lifestyle blog but that hasn’t changed my passion for empowering people to have their dream wedding on a budget. You CAN save money on typical wedding bits and pieces and STILL have your dream wedding – it’s all in the details and your level of flexibility. In that spirit, I’ve rounded up my top 100 ways to save on your wedding day:

For something unique and out of the ordinary, group caricatures of the wedding party are definitely worth a look. This is a perfect way to capture that awesome moment when the groom and all his best buds are together for one very special life-changing event. When it comes to group caricatures, no one does caricatures better than Groovy Groomsmen Gifts.
San Antonio lifestyle blogger, Cris Stone, has gathered up a fab collection of options for your brother, bestie, nephew, dad, and general men about town and all for under $30!
Today’s post is all about the numbers – our $5,000 wedding budget and how we spent the money. I’m mostly going to post the budget breakdown in manageable chunks but I’ll add notes here and there to help clarify a few things. Right. Ready? And away we goooo!
I got today’s post topic as a request from someone who follows me on Twitter (you are too, right? Because y’all – I’m funny. I will be your everything.). Anyhoo, I was asked to come up with a bunch of potential gifts for the groomsmen (’cause the groom was kinda slackin’ in that department and time was of the essence). So I decided to channel my dudeness, put one some of The Boy’s undies, and came up with this mini round-up (all for under $30):
The DIY wedding is a popular opinion for couples on a budget. After all, the concept that it’s cheaper to source materials yourself and do the labor often does save you money.

So you may need to consider delegating some of the projects to family or friends. But how? Here’s so tips and advice for delegating your wedding’s DIY projects from some great wedding bloggers and my own experience.
When someone dies, pictures suddenly become extremely important. Photos, video, audio, become tangible memories of the person lost. I realized quickly that I had very few photos of Sean from our wedding. I didn’t think too much about this on April 17. It didn’t matter, until it mattered.
I’m not done talking about my under $5,000 wedding in Texas! And today, I’m talking specifically about the groomsmen. I have to say that my husband’s groomsmen were INCREDIBLE and did so much to help make our wedding really special.
Ah, the mens. The gender that, as whole, is just adorable (In a “Aw, I wanna you on the head when you do stupid stuff” way.). So, why are they always the second-class citizens at a wedding?
I love, love, LOVE it when a member of Tulle Nation writes to me and asks for help planning their wedding. It’s always fun to hear about other people’s ideas and plans and get to offer them a few more. Recently, Abby wrote to me and asked if I could help her come up with some budget-friendly ideas for her upcoming spring southern charm wedding reception. I tackled that on Monday (read it here) and today, I’m showing you my ideas for Abby’s ceremony:
It’s important to be prepared and your wedding day is no different. I think it’s a good idea for every wedding to plan to have a Wedding Day Emergency Kit on hand… just in case (If you hire a wedding planner – they should bring one with them.). This kit is totally something you can compile yourself with items from around your house. Every wedding is different, so you’ll want to add or subtract items but this is a good rundown of what you’d want to have around in case of a wedding day emergency.
