Shining A Light: The Budget Savvy Bride

We like to inspire brides-to-be all around, but we get inspired too! We’re shining a light some of the spots we look to for ideas and advice. From local favorites around the country to popular sites brides dive into all around the world, we’ve sharing the best of the best in a whole new way. We’ve chatted with some of the bloggers, creators and founders of some wonderful wedding blogs and got the inside scoop! 


This budget-savvy blog is all about saving money on your wedding day. Jessica took us behind the scenes and shared a bit of the backstory…

The Budget Savvy Bride is a daily wedding blog sharing projects, tips and tricks to help you save money on your wedding. We feature real weddings on budgets of $25k or less, all of which include a full budget breakdown from the bride. It’s very helpful to see how other brides spend their money so you can glean some wisdom and tips from the real bride interviews. We also love sharing free printables and DIY projects that add personality to your day without doing too much damage on the wallet.

I started BSB back in the spring of 2008, shortly after my then-boyfriend popped the big question. When I was planning our budget wedding, there weren’t many resources out there for brides with a limited budget. I decided to keep a journal of my budget savvy wedding planning, but little did I know how useful my experiences, ideas and tips would be to so many other budget brides!

Since getting married in May 2009, I’ve continued sharing tips and tricks for how to save money on your big day with the help of our guest bride bloggers. We love to feature real budget weddings that show that it is possible to have a beautiful wedding no matter your budget! Our goal is to be a valuable resource for brides looking to have a fabulous wedding without breaking the bank!”

I love running The Budget Savvy Bride because it allows me to express my creative side. I love putting together tutorials and inspiration posts, and of course reading about love and the happiest day of someone’s life brings a smile to my face daily. The thing that makes it worth it for me is knowing how much my site helps other brides! Getting emails from readers expressing their gratitude truly warms my heart.
