I am passionate about proving that when it comes to your wedding, its not what you spend, its how you spend it! Shhh don’t tell anyone, but the nuptials I feature with minuscule amounts of money in the pot are always secretly my favourites too.
That’s not to say that bigger budget weddings are in any way inferior, it’s just that I’m always so impressed with what people are able to achieve with a a lower than average amount of cash to spend, but a higher than average knack for getting creative!
Whatever amount of money you’re splashing on your own big day, I just know you’re going to enjoy looking through this inspiring bunch.

Have you thought about what you’re going to put on top your wedding cake (or cakes!) yet? While you might think having a cake topper is an unnecessary tradition, there are so many cool ideas floating around at the moment I think it’s silly to rule out having one completely. This is something you can really have a lot of fun with!
Here are 20 of the most creative ones I’ve seen recently.

One of the questions I get asked a lot by readers is where to find alternative and/ or affordable wedding dresses. While I’m always thrilled to recommend my favourite independent designers, I’m also aware than splashing upwards of £1000 on a gown is out of the questions for many of you.
So I hit the interwebs in search of some of the most beautiful and affordable wedding appropriate gowns, all of which I’m thrilled to report come in at under £500 a pop! Anyone that says the Great British high street isn’t the best in the world is grossly misinformed.
Cherish feather dress, Coast, £250
Gemolyn maxi dress, Coast, £495
Lori Lee lace maxi, Coast, £175
Darling dress, Coast, £195
Iris dress, Monsoon, £299

It happens to the best of us. You see your dream purchase, something you’ve been searching out for ages… and then you see the price – YOWZER, that’s nearly a mortgage payment right there! Ugh, why do bad things happen to such good people?!
I had the idea for this post when I fell in love with these babies. So pretty but soooo expensive! Someone on Facebook said I easily do a DIY version (genius!) but first I needed to find a similar base shoe.
I pulled together this post but then I started thinking… maybe I could help you out in the same way? If you’ve seen something you love on your wedding planning travels, but it’s way out of your budget, shoot me an email and I’ll see if I can find you some more affordable options.
Let’s kick this baby off with a few more silver shoe (my current obsession) alternatives.
Jimmy Choo Trey wedges vs ASOS Polished pointed wedges
Kate Spade Andrea Sandals vs Boohoo Becca snake thong
Attention all magpies! Stop what you are doing! This is not a drill! I’ve scoured the interwebs and the archives of Rock n Roll Bride in search of the sparkliest and most obnoxiously glittery wedding related items. If bedazzling everything you own in thousands of sequins and crystals is your idea of a heaven then you’re going to LOVE THIS POST.
I’ll take one of each please.
