Recessionista Wedding

Sarah Traynor, the author behind “How to Have a Champagne Wedding On a Bucks Fizz Budget” and Aisling Mackey the force behind have recently launched which is packed full of practical tips and articles for the budget-concious bride.  You can read up on DIY-ing your own Flowers, Favours and Stationary; and she also poses some great questions as to whether you should even consider DIY elements, particularly with the stress-factor involved.  Sarah, like me is a big fan of putting your personality into your wedding and she shares some great tips and insights.

If you want all of this in one neat little package, then hop over to Amazon and buy the book. The great thing about this is it is all Irish-focused so very relevant to all of those planning a big ol Irish wedding!

Soon to be added to the site is a supplier directory of budget wedding suppliers, so keep an eye out for that in the coming weeks!
