My Wedding on a Budget

2014 was a Hell of a year! I’d have to say the highlight was my beautiful “Celebration of Love” or the day I married my beloved.

I think it is very important to have your wedding the way YOU want it! (Solange’s Wedding later confirmed that for me). It is about you and the person you are marrying, PERIOD. So if you two are happy that is all that really matters. We were definitely on a budget when it came to our day. Especially, with two young children and smack dead in the middle of a move across town.

So I wanted to take a minute and share with you some of my staples and savings from my big day. Better late than Never; right:)!
