Budgets are meant to be a guideline, not an exact. Instead of using dollar amounts, I believe a bride should rank their vendors in order of importance. Then you have a little wiggle room. If you get a better deal than expected on vendor number 5, you may be able to splurge a little bit on your number one and two! I also believe that video and photography are the two most important vendors at a wedding. When the stories run out and the memories fade, the photographs and video are there to help you relive the day exactly as it was.

At Lisasurbannostalgia there is always something new! I have a few projects in the works. You can expect to see glossy colorful paper bead earrings made of antique paper, also chandelier crystals with pictures inside them and enhanced with wire wrapping. The holidays are inspiring. As of this moment I am working on some Halloween bracelets made with vintage images sealed with resin and vintage Halloween postcard pictures in hand soldered pendants, accented with Swarovski crystals and charms.
