Let’s say you have just decided to start planning a wedding (congratulations!), and let’s say you want to be financially responsible about it. One of the first things you might do is start searching for budget weddings online, to look for inspiring examples and get some good advice. Here’s what you will find:
– Lists of things not to include in your wedding
Gee thanks internet! I couldn’t figure out on my own that an off-peak season wedding would be cheaper, or that second hand things are cheaper. Who knew?
– Featured weddings calling themselves budget, that really aren’t
Singularly unhelpful, internet. And please stop making me feel poor.
– Featured weddings that look and claim to be budget, but they haven’t told you how much was spent
Here’s what you won’t find very easily:
– Featured weddings that detail how much was actually spent on each item
Here’s what you won’t find at all:
– Featured weddings that discuss how the in the world it was paid for
– A discussion about how to fit financing the wedding into the rest of your financial life
The absence of this one is especially frustrating on the blogs that are supposed to be all about kicking the ubiquitously unrealistic Wedding Industrial Complex to the curb.
So Frugal Wedding is here to fix that. Frugal Wedding is your destination on the web where we can talk about the actual numbers.
