IDoOnABudget has been running for 4 years now, although I feel the blog only really started to come into its own in February 2015.
The realisation of how long I have been writing IDoOnABudget has made me think about all the support I have received from all you readers and followers. This blog would be a mere diary if it wasn’t for all of you, so thank you, and I hope you continue to enjoy reading the posts. I have been lucky to meet some amazing wedding industry professionals this year, some of whom have contributed to the blog with their pearls of wisdom & others whose products I loved so much I couldn’t help but share them with you.
For all these reasons and more I’ve shared below some of my favourite posts from across these past 4 years.
First Things First
My first ever blog post! This post goes over how you can determine what your wedding budget is when you are first engaged and how you should go about your initial planning if you are on a tight budget. This post really shows not only far the blog has come but also how much I’ve improved as a blogger.
Fantastically Priced Suppliers
This post was me sharing some wedding suppliers I have used when I was planning a wedding that I thought were not only very budget friendly but also gave superb customer service.
In 2012 my sister and I made 5 button holes, 2 wrist corsages and 1 bouquet using woollen pom poms. This is the biggest wedding DIY I’ve ever undertaken (to date) and couldn’t be more proud of what we achieved.
DIY Bunting Making
A step-by-step guide to how my sister and I created a lot of bunting from scratch. From creating the triangle template to sewing each triangle onto the line to create the bunting. We even layered lace fabric over normal fabric to create the desired effect. I will be having another go at making bunting in 2016 I hope.
The story of how my H2B proposed to me
Hen Do Planning
The Oxford Hen Party I planned for my colleague and friend. This post tells you all about the items I ordered to make her Hen Do awesome and where I ordered everything from. The first Hen Party I had planned – I really learnt how difficult planning a hen do can be.
I loved planning the Hen Party and really enjoyed sharing the planning with all of you.
Hen & Stag Party Ideas
Here are my favourite ideas for Hen & Stag party activities. I wonder if any of these appeal to you?
Invites for Less
This is one of my favourite blog posts because I teamed up with Rosie at Little Vixen Designs and Suzanne at Paper Tree Design to provide you with loads of hints and tips on how you can have bespoke professionally made wedding stationary while keeping within whatever budget you have set.
