A is for Announcement

Happy Monday Budget Brides!!!
In this post I would like to take the time to announce my engagement. Yes, Mr, Budget asked me to marry him the day before Thanksgiving and of course I said yes. After five years and a beautiful son, I would love nothing better than to make it official so that we can become family by law.
All pictures in this post belong it The Budget Brides Handbook, please do not use them with out permission. 
Announcing your engagement can be tricky in knowing who to tell first. So here is how I did it:
* I text my brother a crazy guess what message and then followed it up with a picture of my ring.
* I called my best friends and let them know the good news.
*Since both of my parents are sickly and don't do well with phones I waited until I was in front of them to give them the news.
* I tried to notify all the people that I could think of before I actually posted it on any social networks
*About 2 or 3 days after the proposal, I decided to tell the world on social media.
Boy Oh Boy was this a process. But now we are engaged and here comes the craziness. Hopefully, it won't be that bad. Remember to check in periodically as I start this new adventure to the altar on a $25k or less budget.

Celebrity Wedding Tips: Editing Your Guest List

Happy Friday Budget Brides!!

Here is a great article that Lauren Conrad wrote about editing her wedding guest list as she plans her big day. 
Some snippets we love:
* if I haven't had a sit down dinner with you in 2 years, your not invited
* plus ones: if your not married, engaged, long-term relationship or don't know anyone else at the wedding you don't get a plus one. "Who knows, they might meet someone special…"

That last one had me cracking up. But hey you never know.

Sunday Brunch: Amazing DIY Pillows for a Reception Lounge

Happy Budget Brides!!!

The weekends is a great time to start DIY projects. Just think you grab your morning coffee, weekend paper and catch a seat on the couch. As you go through you find the Michaels (or craft store coupons) in the Sunday paper you can clip them out and make your way there.

Here is an amazing DIY project from the ladies of I Love To Create Blog via Ashley from Bride on a Budget. These pillows are so cute and can be made at a low cost. They would make a great addition to a bathroom bench, reception lounge area as well as the perfect souvenior from your special day.
