This is my first post! yay!
I am having a budget, backyard wedding and I’m looking for advice!
My FI and I are both law students so we don’t have a lot of money. We chose coral and teal for our wedding colors and are looking for DIY and cheap decorations and ideas!
I have 4 bridesmaids with very different body types (ranging from very short to very tall and sizes 4-14). Does anyone have suggestions for coral bridesmaid dresses that are under $100?
Our wedding will be in August.

My colors are coral and teal as well! I had a lot of luck using modcloth.com for bridesmaid dresses. I ended up having all my bridesmaids get this one:
but they had a good variety of coral dresses that might be able to be mixed and matched.
As far as decorations, I really recommend shopping after christmas sales, garage sales, and stores like goodwill. For our centerpieces and decorations I have found tons of mismatched vases, jars, picture frames, and other stuff for extremely cheap! I am also doing a ton of DIY projects such as tissue paper pomander balls so I don’t have to use real flowers for very many things.
Hope this helps a little!

Our budget decorations are old flower pots cleaned up and looking nice and a massive collection of wine bottles from friends and family spruced up with cheap flowers and ribbon!

- Wedding: September 2013 - The Gables at Chadds Ford
92 bridesmaid dresses for $55 or less in alot of colors 🙂
^I don’t know if all of those dresses are still available, because that’s an older post- but I know those websites will have something inexpensive for the bridesmaids. Our dresses are from David’s Bridal and we ordered “guava” which is sort of a bright coral color. My girls only paid $100 for their dresses because they got them on Black Friday- but I know David’s Bridal has a pretty big sale right now. My girls are sized 4 through 20 and they actually all looked great in the same dress– it’s style F14847.
As far as decorations go, paper pomanders are actually pretty simple to make and are SUPER inexpensive! http://allmyweddingfaves.blogspot.com/2010/01/tissue-paper-pom-diy.html
A co-worker got her flowers from her local grocery store and they put the bouquets together for her and everything- she said she paid next to nothing for them (she had an August wedding also).

Thanks everyone! I am planning on making some tissue pomanders and giant paper flowers. I still have no idea what to do for the ceremony space, though. It will be outdoor so I’d like something kind of simple and natural looking if anyone thinks of anything!
