    Great post! I love this, and will definitely be a “bride on a budget” if I ever get married. 🙂
    I will confess to being a “Say Yes to the Dress”-aholic, but one thing I notice on that show is how much time, thought, effort, and emotion goes into choosing a dress. I always watch that thinking “I hope that bride puts that much time, thought, effort and emotion into her MARRIAGE and not just her wedding!”
    My piece of advice would be to know, that while you want a lovely stress-free beautiful day, it’s just a wedding, and in the end, you’ll be married to the love of your life regardless of whether or not you got that 5 tiered red velvet cake you wanted. 😉 Weddings are fun and amazing and celebrations. But they are one day. So it’s OK if you have to compromise on a few things on your big day.

    Yes! I agree Lindsey! It is a just one day, so instead of stressing over all the little details and what you can and can’t have enjoy it and make the most of it! Love your thoughts on this!

    Great post, Ashley!

    Debt is so NOT worth it, especially for one of the biggest days of your life 🙂 And there are so many options, like what you listed, to still make a wedding day special and unique, without breaking the bank or looking cheap!

    I really enjoy a lot of what Dave Ramsey teaches, too 🙂
