I have the honour of being bridesmaid in September for the very lovely Jamie and Lauren, my other half’s brother and sister-in-law to be, so weddingness is all around us right now.
It is an honour to be involved in their special day and to be part of the planning that goes into such things. My partner and I are also engaged, although in a much more laid back way – we had our children first (knowing that endo might make things tricky), so for us the actual day is not quite such a big deal.
Kat Williams, the force behind the blog, began documenting her journey to plan her wedding a few years ago. The project has since evolved to a fantastic hub for the most innovative, original, and, best of all – budget weddings I have seen.

Most budget weddings that are reported are clearly not sticking to the kind of budget we will have; ie, “we still need to pay mortgage and bills and feed the kids, 20 grand is ridiculous” kind of budget.
I think that, for most parents who get married after having kids it is the same. Why spend money on just one day when you could have a new car/family holiday/eat for a while?
I love also to see a blog success story, and Kat’s certainly is one. She now monetises Rock n Roll bride in various ways and is a full time blogger, which I think is amazing. The imagery for her site is aesthetically gorgeous, and I love the fact that all advertising is in keeping with the ethos of the blog.
Go and check out some of the wedding stories, they are truly inspirational. And check out too the Rainbow Hair, by Elbie van Eeden. Loving it!
Right, back to Pinterest for me.
