Today we’d like you to meet Lizzie and Isiah, the couple behind the great blog, $10,000 Wedding. Without further ado:
Who are you / What’s your story?
My fiancé, Isaiah, and I are a couple of Chicago transplants who landed in Texas. Isaiah and I met at karaoke in our hometown of Aurora, Illinois when we were both in bands and big-headed. I moved to Texas and he to Las Vegas and we talked on the phone for 6-7 hours a day and became best friends. We moved around a bit, trying to land in the same spot. Isaiah’s a graphic designer, rocker-extraordinaire and imported-beer-connoisseur. I’m a PR student who dabbles in design, photography and music. Now we’re about a year away from the beginning of the rest of our lives and we’re in the midst of making all of the tough decisions.
Yesterday we came across this helpful wedding budget and estimator resource (thanks to Larry Reeves!) for engaged couples planning their wedding and trying to find a wedding cost calculator: costofwedding.com. Cost of Wedding allows brides and grooms to get an idea of the average wedding budget range for a wedding in their ZIP code, and to determine wedding expenses. We know that budget calculations and estimators can be one of the most difficult aspects of wedding planning, so we were delighted when we came across this useful tool that can hopefully help take the stress out of budget planning for couples.
We recently asked Melissa of The Loveliest Day to answer a few questions for us. If you don’t know about her blog, The Loveliest Day, be sure to visit. Melissa has a great mix of inspiration and wedding style, from engagement photos to decorations and more.
We recently connected with Hilary Fruiht of Lovely and Gracious. Her blog is about wedding style and design but Hilary also operates the Lovely & Gracious Design Studio, and she creates and sells stylish yet affordable wedding invitations available on her Etsy page.
Planning a wedding can be a costly enterprise. That’s why we like resources where couples can find money-saving tips on how to make their big day wonderful, yet affordable. Jessica over at The Budget Savvy Bride does just that – she provides info, ideas, and inspiration for planning a wedding on a budget. Jessica was nice enough to answer a few of our questions. Be sure to pay her a visit!
