Continuing Of Another Mix Up Week!

Hello again everyone!

This post is going to be focusing on the b word that no one wants to hear in weddings, the…….……….………………… BUDGET!

Below is a breakdown of a $10,000 budget. Now this is really hard to stick to, but it is possible to stay at this budget. To do so, think about what you really need. You don’t need everything, you don’t need to have so much that you are overwhelmed.

There are some very cute and cheap wedding venues that will not cost you $1,250. Do your research and talks to people that have had weddings. Find out what those people liked and didn’t like about. Was it worth the money that they spent? If they could do it again, would they have still chose the same venue?

Try to incorporate a place with food that includes dessert, then you only have to have a small cake. I am doing the generic desserts for the guests, but for the bridal party and the immediate family, there will be cake.

You can plan this wedding yourself! You don’t need a coordinator! Use your bridal party and believe in yourself.

As far as your dress, you are a princess and this is your day. Get what you want but don’t be afford of simple, some of the simplest dresses are the prettiest.

Spend money in the music because it will entertain your guests and they will have so much fun. It will make you so happy to see that all your hard work is making others smile.

Have someone good photography are wedding because you want to be able to have excellent photos to look back on when you are older and want to show your kids.

The rest is up to you, you are the one that is deciding what YOUR day is going to be like. These are just some of my thoughts.

Thanks for reading!

Have a great next few weeks!

Another Mix Up Week!

Hello everyone!

I wanted to give you another mix up week this week because it is my spring break next week and I will not be posting. These two posts this week will give you something to do while you wait for my next posts.

Now that you have asked special people to be part of your special day, you need to start planning! Now this planning maybe decided on how fast you are planning to get married. However, this plan that I am going to show you is twelve months long. You can change this to spread it out more or to consolidate it all.

The start:

These items are so important even though they are so far away from your big day. These are fun things that you can take time on and really have fun with it.

These next steps are starting to get more important but you can still have fun with it! Just watch out when you get to the register because you want specific things but some of those things are too expensive for people to buy. Make sure that you are flexible and have more “cheaper”, less expensive items with some of those big ticket items.

Now there is a big gap to do this list, this is because it is very personal to you. You need to get what you want on your big day! I know for me, during this next week I will be glowing in the sun with how many decorations and wedding planning that I will be doing over spring break!

Now this is where it starts to get really exciting! You are so close to your wedding! Start distressing and having fun with the people that are part of your special day.

I hope you start to organize plans soon too. I know I will be doing some of this other spring break. You will see those results as I come back from break. Can’t wait to share the thoughts and things I did with you!

Hope you enjoyed my blog this week!
