- Wedding: July 2010
I will start you guys off with the details that I really really loved.
My red wheelbarrow that I used for drinks (which where old-style glass coke and sprite bottles). I wish I had a better picture.
My repurposed tea cans with supermarket flowers that were the centerpieces of the tea hour. The votives were actually also repurposed–originally bought for the rehearsal dinner. The five table’s decor came to under $6.
The photobooth. Such a huge hit. The background probably only came out in this picture but the props were everywhere all night. And it makes the boring obligatory pictures that everyone wants with you so much funner!
We built this canopy and not only was it a beautiful backdrop for our ceremony but really am emblem of our values coming into this marriage.
I loved (and so did everyone else cause they flew) our life centerpieces and favors. Not only were they very affordable (under $20 per centerpiece and maybe $1 per favor), but they were also eco friendly. This is a very very versatile option that I encourage every bride to consider! By the way, we also did these napkin rings ourselves with some ribbon, transperancy paper and a hot glue gun for like under $20 (80 napkin rings).
Our card box was bought from TJ Maxx for like $8 and our guestbook was a Snapfish Photobook of our relationship which came out to like $15 with a coupon. Candelabra $4 from Craiglist. Pens from the dollar bin at Michaels.
And lastly the cake. Everyone told me that it was crazy for someone with no experience to make a fondant wedding cake. A couple trips to JoAnns, some Youtube videos, and a full run through later here we were.
More pictures coming soon!
