When I started my wedding planning journey 6+ years ago, I remember feeling insanely overwhelmed by the entire process. As a bride on a strict budget, I took the DIY approach for my backyard wedding. I slowly gathered decor, searched endlessly for affordable wedding invites, and even bought the first wedding dress I ever tried on because it was less than $500. Basically, I had no idea what I was doing, and would have done anything for some help along the way.
