Budget Bride

Who's that Budget Bride under my teepee?
It's me! It's me!

The Mr. and I got married just about 2 and a half months ago, and on Wednesday we were the feature wedding on "The Budget Savvy Bride's" blog! Jessica, Mrs. Budget Savvy herself, did a great little post about our wedding, and my favorite part is reading the comments from other people who liked things about our wedding.
When we got engaged last December, I quickly realized I was going to have to be super creative to take, what most would consider a teeny-tiny budget, very far. And now that it's all said and done, I have to say, I am very proud with what we accomplished. Our wedding day was the absolute best day of my life, and I wouldn't have changed a thing. I got to sleep in (definite perk to an evening wedding) and spend my day with all my favorite girls-my mom, two sisters and best friend. And then after I was all ready, I got to spend a few moments alone with Kyle before I took my dad's arm and walked down the aisle. To me, it was perfect. And what I am most proud of is the fact I didn't go crazy budget-wise. I spent what I knew I could afford. Here's a short little rant: I think it's very sad girls nowadays think they have to spend an arm and a leg...actually two arms and two have a wedding. THAT'S NOT WHAT IT'S ABOUT! Right? I mean, to me, it was about getting to stand before my closest friends and family to say to Kyle, "You are it, forever and always, and before God and all these people I make that unbreakable promise."
But all that to say, if you want to see the post about our wedding, here it is! The Budget Savvy Wedding of the Week

The hubby and I are heading out of town for the weekend (yay!) so it's time to start packing. xoxo!
