I have been searching and thinking about my wedding for a year now!! This time last year i felt i had so much time, and now its quickly becoming closer and closer. I have a potential location picked out which is the farm i grew up on….
I have looked thru so many pictures and it all looks amazing, but it still looks so expensive to pull it all off.
Has any one been in the same boat, and could give some advice to push me in the right direction…please!!

First, maybe figure out your budget and about how many guests you will have. Next, try to envision what you want your wedding to look like/the theme of your wedding and then start looking up ideas for it. A wedding doesn’t have to be expensive to look beautiful. There are a lot of things you can do yourself and/or get family and friends to help out with. Wedding Bee has such a great DIY section, some with tutorials that you can look at. The important thing is, this wedding is about you and your fiancé. Let it be a reflection of who you two are. Hope that helps a bit.

Like pp I would first get a budget range & a guestlist…
We’re doing ALOT of DIY and other than a fluke on trying to print programs on my at home printer we’ve saved ALOT of money.
Also, I wouldn’t look into to much on these wedding blogs… as my big day quickly approaches I’m realizing that alot of things that I’ve seen on these and thought I needed to be a certain way I probably won’t even notice on my wedding day.
Get you theme & keep it simple that’d be my best advice….
Think about what you think you’ll actually notice and leave the rest alone. ie. I saw a post on here about a freak out on table linens that didn’t go to the floor… my favorite response was a bee that said (paraphrase) “yea i just noticed my didn’t go all the way either… 5mths after the wedding while looking at the pictures!” <— I loved this! lol
Just try and keep your stress down…. research DIY projects & keep it simple 😉
