Get Bridal Guide Magazine For Free

As soon as I got engaged, one of my mom's best friends told me she had a few bridal magazines for me. And almost at the very same time, someone purchased me a gift subscription to Bridal Guide.

I didn't think I needed magazines. I had the Internet, and that was good enough. So I thought.

It's not.

Google is a great place to start, but magazines are so amazing and worth the cost. There is so much information, ideas on ways to save money, how to address invitations, check lists, and a ton of ads for wedding products.

Yes, we have these all on A Bride On A Budget. So you should definitely keep us bookmarked all through your wedding. But you should supplement us with a wedding magazine subscription ... especially if it's free.

Bridal Guide is amazing, but it's $5.99 an issue at the newsstand. That's way too much to pick up at the store every month. Right now, though, you can get a free Bridal Guide magazine subscription.

You can get a FREE subscription to Bridal Guide magazine! This is great if you are just starting to plan your wedding.  Don't miss this offer! Get yours from www.abrideonabudget.com here. #wedding #weddingplanning #diybride #diywedding #weddingmagazine #bridalguide

You can easily get a free issue of Bridal Guide magazine. Just click that link, enter your info, and your first issue should arrive in about six weeks. So hopefully you don't have a short engagement.

I requested all the free wedding magazines I could find. They were all so helpful for me. I was able to flip through them when I had a few minutes and look at the dresses (bridal magazines are very ad heavy, but I never minded), read an article, and just feel like I was on the right track with my planning. That confirmation is worth it.

And brides, they really need a lot of confirmation.

Until you start planning your wedding, you don't even know what you have to plan. And you always feel like you're on the wrong track, no matter what you're doing. So having a magazine is just a big help as far as reassurance goes.

DIY Lovebirds Wedding Countdown Sign

UPDATE: You can get a free 8x10 photo at Walgreens with the code MOMSFREE today, May 13. Use that code to print this DIY Lovebirds Wedding Countdown Sign for free.

I love wedding countdowns. It's just such a fun way to get excited over your upcoming wedding. Okay, sure, maybe that wedding countdown sign also gets your a little nervous. I mean, watching that number go down while your amount of wedding tasks goes up, it can be a bit scary. But you're counting down to the day you get to marry the love of your life. That's the best.

You can purchase a wedding countdown sign, but I would advise against it. Why? Because I made a super adorable one that you can print and put together yourself. That's way more fun!

Want a wedding countdown sign? You can get this one FREE from www.abrideonabudget.com! Hang it on your desk, mantle, wall (or wherever you want) and count down to your big day!

Lovebirds Wedding Countdown Sign


You can display this fun sign anywhere. Put it on your dresser, hang it on a wall, put it on your desk at work. Just make sure you change it every day or you'll lose count -- and have to recount all over. That's easy if you have 30 days left, not so easy if you have 342 left!

What You'll Need:
What You'll Do:

Print the photo (at the end of this post).

You can print it anywhere that prints 8x10 photos. Right now, I would suggest printing it at Walgreens. Today (May 13), you can get a free 8x10 photo print with the code MOMSFREE here.

Put it in the frame.

On the glass of the frame, use your dry-erase market to write the number of days left until your wedding in the white icon.

Every day, change the number in the icon. Picking a dry-erase marker with an eraser will make this just a little bit easier. If not, you'll end up saving a dirty paper towel and that's sort of gross.

Count down until you are happily married. Then, you can pass the sign to your next engaged friend.

Now, about that free printable wedding countdown sign.

All you need to do is right-click the image below and save it to your computer. When you are ready for it, just upload it to a site where you can print (like Shutterfly, Walgreens, etc.). Print it as an 8x10 (that's what it is formatted as) and you can fit it in a frame.

You can print this personalized wedding countdown sign at home too, if you want, but because the background is black and meant to look like a chalkboard, I wouldn't recommend that. It would be pretty ink heavy. Plus, I don't think the paper would look as nice in a frame as it does on photo paper.

For all of our free printables, be sure to check out this link.

Wedding Deals And Savings (Updated for May 2019)

As I've mentioned before, I usually don't post deals on the blog. Yes, it's about saving money, but I try to keep deals on Twitter or Facebook because deals expire and posts on this blog last forever. But people were really happy with the wedding deals and savings I posted for Black Friday and Cyber Monday, so I decided to put together this monthly post of wedding deals and savings.

It is updated every month with the current deals and coupon codes. The post is separated into three sections: Wedding Stationery Deals, Wedding Deals (for anything other than stationery), and Wedding Freebies.

No matter what you are up to in the planning process, this list is sure to help you out.

Save on your wedding stationery, grab wedding freebies, and more from this post at www.abrideonabudget.com. Updated monthly!
