Long Island Budget Bride Blog MUST READS

Jump to Comments

Meet Holbrook native Ariella Monti, blogger bride-to-be.

In June, she started the blog, LI Budget Bride, which is documenting her Long Island wedding planning from her new home base in Raleigh, N.C.   That’s where Ariella, 27, and fiance Chuck Anderson (from Smithtown), 28,  moved to last year, just after getting engaged.  A job opportunity was presented to Ariella, which she just couldn’t turn down and so there they are, planning to get married on Long Island on June 4, 2011.

The challenges are set up in her blog description:  “The adventures of planning a Long Island wedding for 150 guests with a $15,000 budget from 500 miles away.”

“I knew that when I got engaged my wedding would be on a $15,000 budget and I know for Long Island that is quite the fete,” Ariella explains.    Will she be able to do it?

We’ll be featuring LI Budget Bride here so you can keep up with Ariella’s posts as she plans her Long Island wedding.   Just look for a link on the green sidebar to your right.
