Monroe on a Budget has had a “weddings on a budget” section on its web site since 2008, but we’ll be adding to this collection now that my daughter has announced her engagement.

In addition to these tips, The Monroe News and Monroe on a Budget have a shared Pinterest board about budget weddings!


  • 10 reasons why your first wedding booking is the church or ceremony site. (If you read only ONE piece in my archives, make sure it is this one!)
  • Fashion and jewelry


    Ceremonies and locations


    Attendants and guests

    Showers and pre-parties


    Renewal of vows

    Budget-minded discussion points

    Military complications

    Also of note: I used to include bridal expo announcements in the weddings on a budget discussions.

    But the vendor shows held in Monroe County, Mich., are small events, serving as open houses for banquet halls or craft stores than a true one-stop shopping event for the brides. Because of that, a local bride should expect to attend two or three such events to really do some comparison shopping and see a range of ideas.
