Weddings are often expensive yet they don’t have to be. Setting a realistic wedding budget will help you to keep the wedding spending in check. There are often superfluous extras included in weddings just because the couple getting married haven’t paused to question if they really want or need that particular thing.

It’s also surprising how many special deals and great prices you can find when you take the time to look. Here at Fabulously Frugal Bride, we have affiliate links to wedding related products. We have chosen products that we think are both beautiful and affordable. If you purchase products via our links, we receive a small commission at no cost to you.

Frugal wedding planning is possible when you are flexible, when you do your research and when you think outside the box. You might fall in love with something particular when looking at items for your wedding but often there are similar alternatives at cheaper price points.

Wedding planning on a budget involves questioning everything, getting creative and maybe even taking a D.I.Y approach. This will save you money but it also provides a deeper connection to those components of your wedding day.

So, let’s get started planning the fabulous wedding of your dreams while keeping within your frugal wedding planning budget!
