I’m not going to lie when it comes to “oohing” and “aaahhing” over to many of the latest and greatest tech gadgets that come out. However, I refuse to gush over the price. Basically I refuse to be a slave to technology and try to keep up with it constantly. I will admit these new fangled watches are super cool and when we wear them, we can pretend to be spies and superheroes. Pretty soon, everyone will be talking to their wrists and it will eventually become the norm but…….
Isn’t it basically like wearing your phone on your wrist?
Would you be able to sync your phone to your watch?
And Telling your friends to synchronize theirs watches with yours would now make sense?
There are other budget friendly tech related inventions I will enjoy and continue to enjoy instead.
Take for instance the internet and search engines.
Websites and blogs. Websites and blogs that help you save money.
Websites and blogs that help you save money FOR YOUR WEDDING.
Pinterest is literally (think Chris from Parks and Rec) is a godsend when it comes to wedding ideas. but you being so financially savvy already knew that. Right? 😉 I have already made the decision to either make the bridal party’s bouquets or ask the florist at the local grocery store to do it for me.
To cut down costs on the invites, I decided to go with RSVPify to make the RSVP process so much simpler. No extra stamps or paper needed. Guests get a confirmation email when they send the response. I get a notification email saying who’s responded. I can log on to my account to see who’s responded so far. You can upgrade and pay for additional features.
I’m not a social media butterfly in real life, but I’m sure there are people who have instragrammed, tweeted, etc the details of their wedding while it was happening.
Wedding Wire allows you to create your own wedding website for free, complete with a customized URL. I informed people about the link after they responded on RSVPify. As it gets closer to the date, I’m going to put more information on the website. I’m actually at a point where I would like to build a wedding website from scratch, but it’s too late now. Well, I guess I could for practice. 😉
Since we have been living in a house for a few years, I felt it was pointless to register at a home furnishing store of some sort. I didn’t want more stuff that I wasn’t going to use unless I had people over, which we rarely do anyway. Although I probably will end up registering on something for the bridal shower, which again I thought was pointless (one can only waste so much toilet paper to create a wedding dress), but then thought it would be a nice get together for friends and family.
Friends have made registries or wish lists on Indigo and Mountain Equipment Co-op, so really anything goes nowadays. Given the nature of my handy hubby-to-be, maybe I’ll register at Home Depot for the shower. 😛
While we’re still on the topic of technology, I’d like mention that fellow Canadian blogger, Jessica Moorhouse from MoMoneyMoHouses is launching her podcast on Wed June 3rd!! It’s a millennial focused podcast where she will interview a new guest each week about their personal money story. Topics include getting out of debt, doing a shopping ban, trying to overcome their inner shopaholic, quitting their 9 to 5 to become a solopreneur, starting a side hustle, money and relationships and so on. A new episode will go up every Wednesday with show notes to follow on her blog.
