Hey ya’ll! So for those of you who don’t know, I run a Facebook group called “Big Budget Brides.” I established this group a little over a year ago after having no luck in other brides group. I, along with some other wonderful ladies, were getting shamed for having a wedding with a larger budget. Many of those pages cater to DIY weddings and weddings under $10k, which is not a problem – just not what I was looking for. While many of the girls in those groups were great, so many were so mean to those of us who were fortunate enough to spend more…. so, “Big Budget Brides” was created. The group is comprised of amazing women who, like me, are/were looking for advice catered to their style/wedding. They are supportive, helpful, kind, and funny. I love that I got to share my journey with them and they are sharing theirs with me.
However, just because the title is “Big Budget Brides” doesn’t mean that everything we do is crazy expensive! Who doesn’t like a great deal? Below I’ve comprised a list of my favorite Target finds that could be used for many different parts of the wedding. I have linked them all below (this is not a sponsored ad, I get ZERO commission off this post!) with a description of ways you can use them in your wedding festivities! Target has so many “party sets” with packs of plates/napkins/decor that are available for many different themes – I did not attach those as there are SO MANY!
Pre-Wedding & BM/GM Gifts
Groomsmen Box $28.49
Man, I wish I had known about these before we asked our groomsmen! Men don’t seem to care as much about “girly” things like bridesmaid/groomsmen proposals, so it is on us to do them. These great boxes come fully equipped with all the goodies inside! Put their name on it, and call it a day! Click Here!
Bridesmaid Proposal Cards $6.99/5
How freaking cute are these?! Ask your BM to do the honors with this beautiful, water colored card! It comes blank inside so you can spill your guts to your bff when you ask them to stand by your side! Click Here!

Do you love the classic Eberjey pajama sleep set but hate the $85.00 price tag? Sames girl, sames! These Target pjs are literally just as comfortable for a 1/4 of the price!

Wooden Guest Book Alternative $29.49
Everyone is always looking for a great guest book alternative to replace the traditional guest books and while this isn’t the most original one, it certainly is a great alternative! I find that it’s hard to write actual messages on these, but if you just want the name of your guests – this is great! PLUS it doubles as wall art when you’re done 🙂 Click Here!
Wooden Jenga Guest Book $44.00
Favor Bottles $16.99/12
I found trying to find bottles for our wedding favors (limoncello & port wine) to be super difficult! I was looking for the bet bang for my buck and I found them at Michael’s (I’ll link those on another post!). These are cute, mini bottles and at $1.40 a piece, they are pretty competitively priced. You can use these for favors for any of your wedding festivities! Fill them with liquor, candies, mints, etc! Click Here! another alternative with a different top and a few dollars less @ $14.39 Click Here!
Card box $16.99
One thing I wish I would have done differently is stressed less about the crap that no one notices or pays attention to. I searched and searched for hours and hours on end trying to find the perfect card box without spending $60 on a beautiful, glass, Etsy one. Literally ZERO people are going to remember what your card box looked like! We actually ended up getting ours on oriental trading – it served its purpose but the quality was awful!This little gem is perfect for all parties wedding related and comes in both silver and gold!
