Welcome to my blog! I hope you will enjoy following along with my wedding planning adventure: planning our fairy tale wedding …. ON A BUDGET! Ahhhhhh!

Who am I, you say? My name is Mindy, and my amazing partner is Tim. We met in 2005 at the Upright Citizens Brigade theatre. We are both comedy nerds. He likes to write and perform it, and I like to watch and laugh at it. Tim proposed in November 2010 (while I was in the midst of planning to propose to him while on vacation a few months later) at Disneyland during the fake snowfall, which I find incredibly romantic.

We discussed right way about getting married at Disneyland, BUT the big issue was BUDGET. We both have decent jobs but weddings are crazy expensive, yo. I knew that in order to get the fairy tale wedding I’ve always dreamed of, we would have to be thrifty and crafty. Thus begins the journey of planning our budget fairy tale wedding!
