How We Planned our Perfect Wedding (on a really really tight budget)

How We Planned our Perfect Wedding (on a really really tight budget) from Nelly's Cupcakes
I decided to publish this post before my official pictures came back, as I wanted to do it while it was all fresh in my mind, so these pictures are pinched from friends and family. I'll share a second post once I get the fancy photos.
Weddings are BIG business, its a well known fact that if you tell a business you are getting married they tend to double the price of whatever it was you were planning to buy. I know that sounds super cynical and I know not all businesses do this, but I experienced it a fair few times first hand.
When we got engaged we were really overwhelmed by all of the wedding websites and blogs quoting thousands and acting like that was cheap. I lost count of the number of blog posts I read claiming their £7k wedding was cheap/a bargain. I felt like we might never actually get married. We had little savings and it all felt a bit disheartening. We were very fortunate that a wonderful family member gifted us £500 which helped us get the ball rolling and we embarked upon trying to make our perfect day, on a shoestring budget.

Life Lately - September 2017

Yum

Life has been a little hectic lately, I mean when is life with a toddler not hectic? But this past few months has been just a little bit extra. The main source of the stress has of course been my recent nuptials. I mean we purposefully went for small and fun to try and avoid any sort of bridezilla moments and for the most part we managed to keep things together, but my brain has been pretty occupied with a lot of 'But what if no one comes?!' or 'What if it all looks a bit shit?!' and its left little room for much else.
So now its all done and dusted and I am fully fledged Sadie (funny girl reference alert), I thought I would once again peek into the blogosphere and see what's been occurring.
So here is a little glimpse at my life lately and what to expect coming up on my little corner of the web.
