@sparkleeyes:  I know, right? Now there are all these cute things you never thought about having or using…. but you DON’T NEED IT!

I think it is very easy to look at these amazing pictures and be all “I want that, and that, and that…” and get swept up in it all. I have got some great ideas from Pinterest, but they’re mainly pretty cheap or different from ‘traditional’ wedding stuff.

I know that in my mind I’m trying to think of my reception as ‘just a party after the main event’ rather than the usual reception cos I know I would get carried away with all the details that are nice but ultimately don’t really matter.

Etsy has been my downfall. I think “Oh, well, I need one of those anyways, so let’s get a unique one!” That usually means more moola. But I have some fun wedding touches.

I would have to agree with you. Looking at these sites or wedding blogs in general while trying to plan a budget wedding is hard! I just have to remember that it is not needed. It’s hard to remember the important things when such prettiness is all around you…

I have actually found the opposite to be true! I see weddings on here that people have for like $3000, and it is so inspiring for me to stick to it!

I do get a lot of those “I WANT THAT” impulses, but I think ultimately the internet has improved my budget because I’ve seen so many alternative ways to do it for less!

@MabelleBliss:  that’s what I like – while there’s a lot of things you could go overboard, it is great to see such a huge amount of creative, DIY or budget-friendly that you might not normally see
