The Budget Savvy Bride

Budget Savvy…. Something more brides are becoming during this economy. The Budget Savvy Bride has this concept down to an art and shares all her “secrets” in her fabulous blog! Jess has been a huge help to me with my blog since I am somewhat technology challenged. She is in Charlotte this week with her husband who is doing some job training so we met for lunch today. She planned a beautiful wedding for about $10,000 and blogged about it along the way along with a detailed re-cap after the wedding. She is so creative and did an amazing job of showing brides & planners alike how you can save some money without sacrificing the important details.

Jess is also a graphic designer and does lots of cool freelance work in addition to her budget savvy blogging. And she’s a Tennessee Vol (which is where I spent my first year of college)…so that makes her extra cool!

Green Shoes...up & running!

We've officially arrived online! I am so excited to announce that the website is finished! It's taken a while to get everything just right, but with a lot of help it's finally done. Check it out here!

A big thank you to Kristin Byrum Photography and Piper Warlick Photography for the use of their images on the site and to Lucy Parker Randall at wink! photography for her help with the fabulous logo for the business and my lovely headshots! And while I'm at it, I should also thank my dear friend, Hanson, for her help, support, and honest opinions as well as my always patient husband for putting up with me as I go through this major learning process!

Here's to a finished website and my ventures into blogging & planning! Keep checking back with me for new posts, info & pictures and always feel free to leave comments!

.....And since all blog posts are better with pictures, here's one of my faves from the talented Lucy Parker that you can see the city skyline in the background!
