HMMMMMMM Okay..

  • Nope won’t be jumping the broom, totally afraid of falling!!!
  • colors: black, white (damask pattern) and purple!!!
  • flowers: purple callas and maybe roses or carnations for the family
  • DIY: all the way baby!!!!
  • venue cost: 280 (perks of having a brunch wedding!!!!!!!!!! and booking a new venue). I received 20% off because I booked before the 10th of October.
  • Largest cost: everything has been pretty nominal but I suppose the most surprising cost was alterations. I bought everything else used or on sale (including my dress!!!)

@Miss Tattoo:

Lets see if I have this right

 

What will your ceremony/reception/ect be like?

Fun, warm, inviting, and beautiful. The ceremony will be pretty traditional in the sense that there won’t be anything outrageous going on.  I will be having a few special guests speak, and possibly some sort of uniting ceremony (i.e. rose, sand, candle)

 

 Are you jumping the broom?

Absolutely! It was my fiancé’s idea…  

 

Are you interfaith?

Nope, we are both Christians, although we prefer no denomination concerning our religion.

 

Colors?

Scarlet, gold, and ivory

 

Flowers?

roses, roses, roses!! THe theme is Romance and Roses lol

 

Are you DIY? Sometimes.. I am more of a get it for a steal bride… I never, and I mean NEVER pay full price for anything!

How much did your venue cost? I will be having my ceremony and reception at the same venue. $750 rental fee for reception, and $500 rental fee for ceremony.  Then there is $27.00 pp catering that we estimate a total of 100 ppl. Eventually after including taxes and gratuity the entire venue and food came out to $5,500.  We also get a free dance floor, free centerpieces, and so much more. We will have an open bar as well as part of our catering minimum which is $3000.

 

What is the largest cost?

The venue of course…but beyond that I look everywhere I can to save… ENtering contest is a second job. I’ve won trips to other countries, my wedding attire, wedding rings, concert tickets, and much more just from entering a contest whenever and wherever I can!

 

Just give it all!

I plan on having the best time ever! I saved lots of money on my vendors as well… Any DALLAS brides looking to save let me know… I’m your girl!

Our ceremony and reception will be pretty traditional.

I really want to jump the broom and my white fiance is cool with that. (I’m afraid of falling, but what the hell!)

Colors are purple and orange (with splashes of pink/red and maybe green). We will be DIY’ing it up big time!

As of now, our venue shouldn’t cost more than $2,000. I have no idea how much catering will cost, though. We haven’t paid for anything yet, but I’d say the reception space and catering will cost the most!
