Budgeting Beautifully

You've met the guy, he's popped the question, you've set a date. You've also set a budget. And now you're biting your nails, wondering how you'll ever meet it. Relax. We've got some great tips on how to save a little cash and get ready for your big bash!

Did you know that those eleven ounce bottles of Evian you drink everyday can really add up? Well, they can. To a total of $50 each month. For that kind of cash, you could buy a tiara made of freshwater pearls. As a less expensive alternative to purified water, try a Brita filter. It attaches directly to the tap on your kitchen sink and filters your water for a crystal clear finish. A one-time purchase of only $30.

Consider the grande mocha cappuccino that you order each morning. That quick pick-me-up can add up to $120 each month! In a year's time, that money could be spent on a gorgeous satin wedding gown. Sample General Foods International Coffee instead. Sold at your local grocer's, these great tasting coffees come in lots of yummy flavors like cinnamon chai, dark raspberry, and lite mocha. One canister of these nine ounce coffees costs about $4 (and you can make it with your pure Brita water).

You and your fiancÚ enjoy going out to the movies every now and then. Especially now, as it helps distract you from all your wedding planning woes. But the cost of tickets, popcorn, and soda can add up to $70 in just two trips! You could buy a beautiful bridal bouquet at that price. A cheaper choice is a Netflix membership. This online video club lets you rent an unlimited amount of movies for just $16.99 per month. It's still a great stress reliever and you don't have to worry about the obnoxious guy behind you on his cell phone!

There are also your monthly copies of Cosmo, Vogue, and (shh) Teen Beat. These can add up to $140 over the course of a year! That's equal to the cost of a designer tuxedo rental. Instead, turn to the internet for the latest and greatest celebrity gossip. With sites like eonline.com, tmz.com, and perezhilton.com, you'll have the juiciest news and hottest trends right at your fingertips. And it's absolutely free!

Now you have a better prospective on how to spend. So take a deep breath, smile, and stop biting your nails. Because multiple pre-wedding manicures can add up too!

These are just a few ideas of how you can save. however if you want to really get productive and save you must get organized with a list and a guide from some one who has done there homework.
