I’m Jackie, the founder of The Creative Bride. I’ve always had expensive taste! I’m sure I’m not alone in this, but I seem to have an uncanny talent at being able to pick out the most expensive things in the shop without even looking at the price tag. I blame my mother! Unfortunately it seems to be a family trait that I've inherited as I’ve always been the same.
Whilst I do appreciate fine dinning, designer labels and sporty cars I also understand they also come with a hefty price tag. It has been commented many times that I have champagne taste and prosecco income (Sad but true lol). However I’m also a bargain lover! I don’t mind spending a little bit of time googling my next purchase to make sure I get the best quality items with rave reviews but they have got to be at the best prices. Over the years I’ve have literally saved thousands of pounds!
When it came to my wedding, I was exactly the same. I knew I wanted a WOW wedding. I wanted to make it a day to remember for all of my guests and I wanted to do it without spending stupid amounts of money. Don’t get me wrong, it wasn’t a cheap day at all, but it was thousands cheaper than others similar that I had seen and I did it with a little bit of effort and a lot of googling!
Over the next few blog posts I’m going to tell you my money saving secrets. I’ll tell you all the bits that were really good and all the bits that I wouldn’t do or I would do differently if I had my day all over again.
