The “B” word

Seriously?  Get your head outta the gutter!  Not what you think it is but the other nasty B word…

 Budget.

Boooooo.  (that also begins in B).

Budgets are no fun.  They are absolutely necessary but they are no fun.  Budgets are not sexy and they require work.  So once again let’s all say “BOO” together.. “BOOOOO“.

I’ve currently been updating our wedding budget.  When doing a wedding budget try to ball park HIGH.  Do some research and get estimates.  Estimates are just that … estimates. So they might change.  Be ready to be flexible!  Our wedding is on the lines of “DIY” kinda style so we are trying to SHATTER our budget and come in WAY under.  {Obviously, you will have to check back post March 2nd to see those results…}.  Another pointer, try to list EVERYTHING.  I like to scan www.theknot.com and the weddingwire.com for ideas of what to include.  These sites are amazing for any bride!  But… if you are like me and need to just keep it simple (MUAH, get it?) Then excel is the way to go.  {Thank you B for pointing this out like a month ago, and then sweetly, but firmly reminding me that spreadsheets is the way to go… kisses…}

I created this pretty little spreadsheet here…

 

{Yes, these are the colors of the wedding.  

Yes, I have no idea what that fluffy thing is under my dress is called,

 so it will remain in the budget as the “fluffy thing”}

 

As you can see I’m adopting the KISS {keep it simple stupid} method to not only my business but my wedding planning.

As far as this week goes… where did this week go?  I’ve thought it was Thursday all day!  Ha, it’s Wednesday!  And guess what else? Had a fabulous day!  1:1 meetings, new clients and wrapping up old projects.  Now if I could only get on a “routine” that would be the icing on this girl’s cake!  Which by the way being just after midnight, cake sounds amazing!  And coffee… So before I end this, I have to apologize since I didn’t get to send this to my proofer… he is currently sleeping… please don’t judge my beautiful use of grammar if I royally screwed it up.  Ok? ok!

Goodnight! :)

  1. The fluffy thing that goes underneath your wedding dress is called a crinoline. :)
