An Introduction to Bullet Journalling (with Free Template!)

fstockphotosb-6

I’m not even exaggerating when I say that starting a bullet journal changed my life. It sounds a bit OTT, but it’s true! Before I picked up my first Leuchtturm  I would forget when I’d made plans, I was lazy and got next to nothing done in my free time after work. Starting a bullet journal has turned me into a crazy organised person.

5 Ways to Save Money on Your Wedding Dress

 

Buying a wedding dress, like every other aspect of planning a wedding, is crazy expensive. It’s really incredible that a dress you only plan on wearing once is the most expensive you’ll ever buy, isn’t it?!

Being a bit of a cheapskate myself, I did a fair bit of research on how to save money on buying a wedding dress. It’s really not easy! And don’t get me started on finding nice High Street bridesmaids dresses. It’smnreally true that adding the word ‘wedding’ to anything doubles the price immediately. Eventually, though, I came across some good ideas and thought it would be fun to come up with my own list of the best tips. Here are my top five favourite ways to save money on a wedding dress!. I’ve started with the lowest risk (and arguably lowest saving) and moved on to the high-risk, big bargains stuff!

How To Save Money on a Saturday Wedding

How to save money on weekend wedding

I don’t think it’s a surprise to anyone that weddings are expensive. Since getting engaged, I think I’ve probably googled ‘how to save money on a wedding’ at least once a week! And there are some really great articles out there, but they all start with the same idea: Don’t have your wedding on a Saturday. They’re right, of course – getting married in the week instead can save you thousands in venue fees.  If you can do it, by all means, do!

But what if that’s not possible? What if you can’t get time off in the week, or you don’t feel right asking guests to take holiday to come to your wedding? For us, it really wasn’t an option. My fiancé and I work together, and wouldn’t have been able to have all of our lovely friends from work there on a weekday, and on top of that our chosen venue only does weddings on a Saturday.

Through a bit of research, I’ve managed to source some pretty great ways that you can save money regardless of which day you pick. Hopefully, some of these will be useful to you too!
