We are having a small budget wedding, around $5,000 for 90 guests. Our original budget was $3,500 but i spent more than i expected on my dress, fittings, and accessories. Our theme is vintage picinic. We are having our wedding and reception at Future Mother-In-Law church..donations only. Officiant is friend of the family.
Both our families and I are pulling together, and preparing all the food. Picnic style food, which we love. We are buying the food. We are also having the cupcake making party the day before the wedding. My Future Sister-In-Law is making our cut cake/anniversary cake for us as a gift. We are having a dry wedding, our wedding is 1:30 on a Saturday at a church..lol
I’m making alot of diy decorations. Backdrops, paper flowers, doily balls, signs, tissue paper hanging flowers, card box out of a antique picnic basket, photo booth, and other things. We are also using alot of our own things for decorations. Milk glass, lace tableclothes, candy dishes, vases, candles, and frames.
Future Mother-In-Law and I are making all the STD, invitations, and thank you notes. My mom & I are making our own favors.
We got a photographer pretty cheap. $600 for 2 photographers for 6 hours.
Our flowers has been the biggest problem to keep budget. We are ordering our ceremony deco flowers & centerpiece flowers from a online flower wholesale store and making the arrangements ourselves. I am ordering the bouquets, boutonneires, and corsages threw a florist, i did not feel confident doing them. All flowers should be around $500.
The church has a great sound system so we are doing our own music, my niece is excited to be the dj.
We have alot of people helping us with our big day, and I appreciate them all for it.
