IT ALL STARTED WHEN...
I had my own wedding and I struggled to keep within my budget because weddings are seriously expensive and stressful parties to throw! Just because you are on a budget doesn't mean you can't have a lovely and meaningful celebration, but I feel like this industry is seriously leaving out budget conscious folks. It seems like as soon as the word 'wedding' is uttered, the price is jacked up 4x more!
I made it my business to study every wedding book, tip and trick I could find. After some serious homework and local research, I want to share my experience and knowledge with you.
