Disposable cameras and Instagram are great, but not everyone wants the waste of a plastic camera body or the publicity of #YourWeddingHashtag. And sometimes waiting for the turnaround from your photog can be excruciating. Let’s be real, it’s pretty rad to cuddle up with your new spouse (OMG!) tired, a little tipsy and totally on a euphoric high and scroll through all of the amazingness you just experienced. We often hear the wedding day goes by in a blur, and it’s easy to miss out on those funtimez.

Enter: Ceremony app. Free to download for the reg version or a measly $4.99 for the pro version.

Ceremony is a place to capture and store all photo and video evidence of the love, the shenanigans and definitely Uncle Morty’s best dance moves. No battling with hyper-public social media (unless you want to, because you still can with Ceremony) and no waiting for film to be developed.

How’s it work?

  • Create an event, receive your private event code.
  • Invite your people
  • Your people take photos — either in-app or with whatever app they chose and then upload ’em to the Ceremony app
  • Pics and vids show up in your feed
  • Ogle the silliness

Ceremony-app-in-use

Super simple, right? Yeah, we thought so too. Ceremony also has some shiny extra features in the Pro version, like the ability to block your cousin’s boyf who has had just a few too many and keeps taking photos of the ground, or (with the pro version) the ability to customize your event code, download hi-res images or videos and download a zip file with all the goodies packed up tight. The app is private, free from data mining, advertising and creepers. And it’s pretty … which is awesome.

Head to the Apple App Store or Google Play store to download Ceremony for your wedding!

    Sponsored Post Disclaimer Minted-wedding-stationery

    We love Minted — we’ve always loved Minted — because they have stunningly amazing stationery. But when we got word through a little birdie (in the form of an email from Minted) that they were launching Print-It-Yourself wedding stationery, we kind of died a little (in a good way). Because, you guys, this super affordable option to get the gorgeous designs Minted offers up without spending a bajillion dollars is totally a Broke-Ass dream come true.

    How’s it work? Well, darling, I’m glad you asked:

    1. Choose a design and plop down the cold hard cash ($50)
    2. Play around! You’ve paid for it, so now you can edit to your heart’s content
    3. Satisfied? Good. Download that sucker (in PDF format)
    4. Get some card stock — your pick but a minimum of 80 lb cover weight paper is best
    5. Print that shizz!

    Uh, easy, right? Right. That’s what we thought, too. Minted’s Print-It-Yourself invitations and RSVP cards take a lot of the hassle — read: cost — out of wedding stationery without sacrificing design and style … because who would want that?

    Speaking of design, because you’re printing these pretties yourself, that also means you pretty much have endless say over the personalized elements you can add to them. Need to get inspired? Minted’s got your back there, too, with this fun DIY idea on their blog.

    Head over to Minted and check out the Print-It-Yourself design options, then come back and tell us which is your favorite in the comments!

    Broke-Ass-Bride_Image-05

    Long after the cake is eaten, the dress is preserved and the confetti is swept up (and the hangover is gone), you'll still have the photos of your amazing budget wedding to remember the day you and your love built your baby family. You shelled out a pretty penny for an amazing photographer who captured every detail of the day, so don't let those stunning pics…

    Rings

    Guys, let me tell you: It's super easy to find the national average of what couples spend on engagement rings (a single search yielded steady results ranging from $4,000-$6,000+) but wedding bands are a whole 'nother ball game. After four search attempts and even asking a group of other wedding bloggers, the best I could come up with is a post from 2014 on NYTimes.com…

    Timeline Genius

    One of the great perks to hiring a great wedding planner is that you have someone who already knows their way around a wedding timeline or two. But a wedding planner certainly doesn't fit into every broke-ass' budget, and you still need some sort of schedule to tell you -- everyone else -- what to do and where to be on the day-of. You already know…
