- Wedding: September 2012
my wedding is Sept 29th our budget is super tight! everything has to be under $2500. Because of budget we have to go without the usual wedding bling so to keep costs down I had to get creative…so here is my plan and hope it goes well.
my father and grandson will be giving me away. Nothing fancy at ceremony. bbq style dinner $14 ea (up to 65 people), in old saw mill $250 (for ceremony/reception-but no alcohol allowed). no flowers, dj, band, or photographer. table decore is white with brown paper table runners, I will be laying out markers to doodle with and turn into decope picture frame for a so called guest book. Each, place setting will have a paper band going around the napkin /silverware with fun quotes or bible scriptures “When a man Opens the car door for his wife, it’s either a new car or a new wife.” there will be a large puzzle pc at each setting (for an icebreaker) put to gether to form a menu. center pc are sap tins ($30) filled with sticks to be used for smores later in the evening. I splurged on 72 votive candles with glass $35 wrap some fall theme ribbon around them for color. MUSIC is on ipod, DIY photobooth in corner with handmade props. All my invitations, menu, and program is designed and printed by me. I just hate the ding the glass thing so we will be mimicking anyone’s sample of how a kiss should be. Thinking about investing in a marchmellow gun for any rule breakers.hehe String up Christmas lights and the send off will be Japanese wishing lanterns $30 the groom spent $145 on vest and tie, wedding dress $350 officiant $150, license $10.
