We got married more than 18 months ago and it seems like it was so long ago, but I learned a lot from the process. Between getting engaged and getting married, we had a whirlwind 14 months of planning, surgery, a pregnancy, a birth and then ta-da! A wedding. As well as my nerves being shot to hell in the latter stages, our finances were something we had to keep a close eye on. With a tiny baby to care for and me just coming back from maternity leave (all 10 weeks of it) a super lavish wedding wasn’t something that was on the cards.
That said, our day was amazing and we learned a lot about being a bride and groom on a budget. So with wedding season on the horizon, here are my top tips to help you save some cash whilst planning one of the best days of your life.
