Fabulous but not Broke!

Budget wedding | Designer wedding dress cheap | Chapel Hill wedding photographer If there are only two things that I know about myself is that I am a planner, I have a plan for my plan and to do lists for my to do lists, and I love a great deal.    So when I started planning my wedding I had spreadsheets, diagrams and you name it.  I was sure that everything would be planned out and thought through so that I was using my budget to get the best quality and most for my buck.  About a week in to planning all the weighing desires of our families, the endless list of small decisions and just the list of to dos got a bit much.  I had to take a moment, and a cupcake, before I decided the only way through was to break it all up into smaller bite size pieces.

Recently I came across two sites I wish I had known about when I was planning my fabulous but budget conscious wedding.  Since their use to me is limited I decided that I should share the new found wealth with you!

The first site is called Happily Ever Borrowed.  When I came across it I was in wonder at how I hadn't thought of the idea previously, like the extra sleeve of cardboard around to go coffee!  It is a site that allows you to rent/borrow the accessories for your wedding.  You have a pick of the litter of all these amazing designer's accessories to look over and choose!  Since you only wear them the once it allows you to have a piece that looks like you invested your arm, leg and possibly three future children but without all the costs!

The second website is Nearly Newlywed.  Much like the first it's for a budget conscious bride who wants to only save a penny but look fabulous while doing so!  It is a site filled with designer dresses that are discounted!  It also has accessories to choose from as well.  Most of the items are half their original price but still wholly amazing!  I'm a sucker for a great deal on quality products so this website did me in when I saw it.

So if you are looking to make your wedding fabulous but keep your wallet from only having a bit of lint left you might want to take a browse around!  What tips and sites have you found that have helped you or are helping you with your wedding?

Live. Love. Loud.
