I lived at Dollar Tree when I was a teacher, so you bet my wedding on a budget had decor from materials I got from there. Seriously though, check out Pinterest and head to dollar tree, there are so many decorative and practical items you can make fro...

I know David's Bridal is a chain, and more modern brides are looking in Boutiques, but don't count them out just yet. My wedding dress was originally $2,000 and I get it for $500 on sale. There are always sales going on at these stores and you can fi...

I'm a very creative person and I do a ton of DIYs, but the printing costs out there are ridiculous. You can design beautiful invitations on Shutterfly for an affordable price and their customer service is top notch.

Personal shoutout to the best wedding photographer ever. Okay, I may be a little biased since he was mine, but I'm not because Robert is a serious professional who was great to work with and gave my husband and I a gorgeous album of memories along wi...
