If you are planning your wedding right now, you feel overwhelmed and rushed. So, take note from our next bride, she chose to take her sweet time and enjoy it, and says she highly recommends the same for other brides.
By taking their time to plan and not rush their wedding, they saved money and were able to make the day truly everything they dreamed of. Curious about how to slow down your wedding planning? Keep scrolling to read more about this all natural barn wedding at Fallingwater, along with the budget breakdown. See all of their details captured by Hotmetalstudio in the full gallery.
Slow and Steady Planning
From the Bride: Take. Things. Slowly. Don’t get bullied into planning too fast! Plan slowly and figure out where you WANT to spend money- it’s so easy and tempting to rush decisions and forget budgets. We planned for just under 2 years – all that time meant that we were able to save money and splurge on what was most important to us.
Save a Little
If you are on a budget buy local! Also search out new or small businesses first. The smaller businesses were also MUCH more flexible and even offered discounts since our wedding was so far in the future. DIY – It’s a no brainer if you are looking to cut costs – but only take on what you can manage and PRACTICE. If you do decide to DIY – don’t do your manicure until all the crafting is over!
