Wanna-Be Wedding Planner

Hey Wanna-be’s! As promised, I’m following up with another wedding blog!

Hoping this one gets more feedback, I felt like my last one fell a little short! I get it, people don’t like realizing they’re Bridezilla’s.

And it’s hard hearing real life examples.

And sometimes I ramble too much.


Oh well. I thought it was fun, AND I got to show off my wedding pictures. Win for this wanna-be. 

This week I’m tackling saving some cash on the wedding and reception. It’s a huge issue, and let me tell you, it’s hard to save and have things look like the fairy-tale wedding you’ve always dreamed about!

Coming from my own experiences, I’ve put together a few of the top ways to cut some corners on that final wedding bill:

  1. Determine Your Budget
  2. Shop Around
  3. Don’t Give Into the Wedding Industry
  4. DIY
  5. Skimp on what you can, Go Big on what you want

Hope you find it helpful!

Not that I’d classify blogging in the same category as laundry, but life was nuts, a few things had to take the back burner. Sorry to my now husband, who’s had to scrounge for clean clothes for weeks (months). His legs aren’t broken and he knows how to do laundry, but… I digress.

Since getting engaged and planning the wedding, which was absolutely amazing, by the way (I’m biased, but really), I have had the Wanna-be Wedding Connoisseur/Planner/Extraordinaire bug.

Does everyone feel this way? It’s so weird going from constant planning and lists, to totally done. Only Thank You cards to send and leftover centerpiece junk to get rid of. Talk about a total let down!
