Quite a few of you have asked where to find charms for your bouquet, shoes, garter and more. You can find lots on Etsy but one of my favorite Etsy shop is Your Charmed Wedding.
If you are a do-it-yourselfer then Perfect Pendants Plus is for you. You will get the most bang for your buck there but a little work will be necessary.

Hubby is still rolling his eyes every time I ask him a question about what he wants for our vow renewal and this is more or less how our conversation about the budget went....
Me: "Honey. We haven't really talked about a specific budget for the vow renewal. I am hoping to keep it under $5000 since that's how much we've saved for that day specifically but do you understand that it will be closer to $5000 than $3000."
Richard: "As long as we don't spend any money on stupid stuff that should be plenty!"
Me: "What do you mean by 'stupid stuff?’"
Richard: "Anything unnecessary, really."
Me: "You're a man! I already know half or almost all that I want to do or buy you would think is unnecessary. You would be happy if we just had a barbeque and called it a day."
Me: "Okay. Well, let's just have a backyard barbeque then since that's what you want."
Richard: "Come on. I know you want your "wedding" with the dress and all that...$5000 is fine but let's not go over because of anything unnecessary."
Me: "Okay, okay. Thank you for finally answering the question I originally asked, Baby."
So, the budget is $5000 and wheels are turning. I know a want something Royal maybe Victorian or even French. I have to see venues again before I can decide but I know I want it to be spectacular. :D

Okay. So, I've been married for almost 7 years now, since March 15th of 2006 as a matter of fact, so I wouldn't actually call myself a bride and I am definitely not a newlywed, but since I am back to planning that wedding I never had which will be happening March 15th, 2014 I have a renewed interest in all things budget bride...Bronze Budget Bride that is, of course.
After what seems like years of wishing and hoping and thinking and praying...planning and dreaming that finally the day will come, when we've saved enough money to renew our vows in front all the people we cherish, that day will be here in less than 14 months. So, on January 1st, I pulled out my wedding planning books, files and all the wedding magazines I've dogged eared over the years and we started planning for our big "vow renewal" day. Richard, my dear hubby, rolled his eyes about five times before I could even ask him one question. I think I should have gone on and on about how this day is going to be "OUR" special day to celebrate "OUR" 8 years of marriage. Let him know how much I am counting on him to be involved in the process and that I want him to be as excited as I am but...I think the look I gave him said it all.
So, hoping that you are all not rolling your eyes too, I am going to be sharing lots and lots about our plans as we go along. I am very excited and nervous about pulling off the fab wedding "I" want for under $5000 but I am 100% sure that I will have a splendid day come March 15th, 2014 because I will once again be saying "I do" to a man who makes my soul smile. I hope you are looking forward to joining me on this journey! :D

I like the idea of using a tackle box to put all you will need in case of emergency8 and you can use this list as a guide on what you will need.
