Note from Lana | Lifestyle Queen Bee: When I lived in Kanata (Ottawa), I remember so many houses in my neighbourhood having garages that served another purpose other than storing your car (& that tent you haven’t touched since Junior High).

Bougie On A Budget: 10 Ways to Wow at Your Wedding

This past weekend, my husband & I celebrated our first year of marriage (January 28th). We had a beach wedding in Punta Cana (Dominican Republic) with 40 of our closest friends & family.

In today’s post, I’m giving you 10 budget tips I used for my wedding that Continue reading “Bougie On A Budget: 10 Ways to Wow at Your Wedding”
