Bride on a Budget

These days, brides are really having to find ways to stretch their dollars. So anything that can be done a little more affordable, without losing the chic and stunning effect you are going for, is always a sweet bonus.

I found this beautiful idea for a centerpiece on By submerging the flowers in a tall vase they will last longer, plus you can use just one or two stems which greatly cuts costs. Adding a floating candle and other surrounding candles definitely captures a romantic and whimsical mood!

Another super cute idea is this DIY Just Married banner that can be hung at your reception and then removed and placed on your car as you leave. Or personalize the banner with your and your sweety's names. Find out how to make your very own custom banner at
One more sweet idea. And this one really is sweet! DIY homemade raspberry jam to give as a wedding favor. What's especially great about this is that you can make the jam and can it months before the wedding because it lasts for a whole year. Using mason jars and making the tags yourself will really save you some dough. Check out how to do this project at

Doing as many wedding projects yourself with the help of your groom, and close friends and family can greatly help a bride cut back on the high cost of a wedding.

A Father's Day Gift For The Man Who Has Everything

It's that time of year again! Time to search and search for the perfect gift for dad. If your dad is like mine, he is the kind of man who doesn't need much, but what he does need, he typically buys himself. So every year it's a struggle to find just the right gift.

This year may be easy though. I came across this Custom Cornhole Table on I have never seen this before and it's just so awesome! Not only can the table hold your drink, food, etc. while you play, it is also a scoreboard! What cornhole lover would not drool over this thing?! These are custom made with your team's logo, your favorite adult beverage, etc. right on top for all to see.

There's nothing better than a relaxing backyard game of cornhole with dad! And you just know he'll be bragging to his friends about the wonderful son/daughter he has who bought him this sweet Cornhole Table! Forget about dad, I want one!
