I can’t quite believe how quickly this year is going. I know that January seemed to go on, and on, but now – somehow – we’re in April and the sun is shining! April is my favourite month of the year for so many reasons, but mostly because the weather starts to warm up a bit more, plus it’s my birthday month. The year it’s all a bit different though. I know last year we were in lockdown and this year we’re just coming out of one, but for us, April means that there are only 7 months to go until our wedding.
Wedding planning hasn’t been our main priority lately.
There’s been so much going on this year so far and the wedding planning has taken somewhat of a back seat. We’ve recently moved house, acquired a campervan in need of restoration and conversion, and ended up with a few other financial commitments. Thanks to all of that, money is a little tight at the moment…I definitely need to work on those side hustles and get some extra cash!
Shopping small makes someone’s day & can save you money.
I’ve been thinking about DIY projects I can do for the wedding that’ll help save us money. Put the word ‘wedding’ in front of something and it always ends up being twice the price. My search for cheaper wedding goodies landed me on Etsy. Buying from a small business feels soooo much nicer and more satisfying than throwing obscene amounts of money and a huge company. When you shop small, you make someone’s day, and that feels really lovely. The fact that we can get quality wedding items that have been made with love AND save money can only be a good thing.
