Got a Passion for Fashion? You Might Be Our Gal

It’s wedding planning season, and the team at The Broke-Ass Bride has been inundated with Can’t Afford It? Get Over It! requests, and it’s high time we brought on a second fashion-savvy contributor with an eye for detail and spend-thriftiness to help our girl Elaine divvy out the broke-ass friendly versions of fabulous designer gowns.

Does that sound like something you’d be super good at doing? Awesome! Here are the things we need from you:

- Be willing to commit to posting 2x a month. This is every other week, darling, and the deadline is real.

- Have a Pinterest board showing your budget-savvy, fashion-focused prowess

- Know how to string a few words together

- Be super stoked about helping brides find a good broke-ass friendly dress of their dreams, and a general love of weddings

- Understand that we’re a baby biz, and for right now we can only compensate in high-fives, possible freebies, discounts and the potential for moving into a paid position, as well as stellar recommendations and a chance to enhance your writing/blogging skillz

Sound like something you’d dig? Email Christen at christen@brokeassbride.com with a short cover letter introducing yourself and link to your relevant Pinterest board showing your ability to help a bride who #CantAffordItGetOverIt! Accepting applications until 2/15.

    Have you figured out what you’re doing for your registry? More and more couples are going the cash registry route for their wedding wishlist – whether they’re saving up for a house down payment, are whittling away at starting their marriage debt-free or are looking to go on an adventure of a lifetime with their honeymoon.

    Cash Registries Get Beautiful with Tendr

    And, y’all, there are a TON of cash registry options out there. But Tendr blows ‘em all out of the water, just on looks alone.

    Tendr provides the most aesthetically pleasing interface that actually feels like a gift-giving/receiving experience, rather than just the shuffling of cash over the Internetz. Tendr is set up to be elegant and streamlined, but still incredibly personalized and wildly in touch with modern technology.

    You as the couple registering, get to set up your own unique page welcoming your guests and giving your friends and family the lowdown on how you plan on using their gifts and all the monies are slid right into your personal bank account for safe-keeping. Simple, right? You have no idea.

    Cash Registries Get Beautiful with Tendr

    Your guests give you a monetary gift in three easy steps:

    1. Personalize a card from Tendr’s collection.

    2. Fill-a with skrilla.

    3. Hit send!

    Oh, and you can hit ‘em right back with an instant, free thank-you card to let your guests know you got their gift and are super grateful. The rates to use are comparable to other cash sites (5% paid from the couple’s gifts, not on top of the gift paid by the guest), but the personalized cards and pretty interface are really what makes Tendr stand out from the rest of the pack.

    I don’t want this post to be about regrets. Our wedding day was beautiful and I wouldn’t change a thing about it. However, I feel I should be completely blunt with you fabulous BABs about budgets and how they can easily veer way off course. Because I know I’m not the only bride whose budget …

    Five for Friday: My Favorite Things from Luna Bazaar Right Now

    I love Luna Bazaar products, not just for a wedding, but for my home too. Last year, Luna sent me a few things to test out, and I’m totally hooked. Those disco ball string lights? Still totally in my house. So, they did it again. Luna Bazaar gave me a chance …

    It can be a cruel world out there for brides on a budget. So much of the pretty can be out of reach, and it gets exhausting trying to keep up with the Joneses. Bridal Burnout can take place way early on, because there is a butt-ton …

    Hey everyone!

    Remember back when I showed you a teaser for our engagement pictures? My friends at Traynor’s Photography gave me the rest of our pictures over the weekend!

    And, just like us, our pictures are goofy, ranging from mildly silly …
