Hi! I’m getting married in less than 2 weeks, and have taken on a boat load of DIY (dont think I’d do it again, given that I work full-time, and have a 7 month old daughter). My theme is vintage-like, with modern touches. Yellow, navy, lime green, and white is the color scheme. I have milk glass vases that I got off of ebay and in the few thrift stores that carried them at a reasonable price around town. My budget? 6,500. My dad purchased my dress, paid for alterations, and will cover the venue.
Venue- Amado Territory Ranch, Amado, AZ
They allow you to bring in your own liquor, no corkage fee, your own caterer, although they have 2 restaurants on site, one of which will be catering for us. You can pretty much customize it however you’d like. The only problem is getting vendors out there, since it’s 40min from Tucson.
Flowers- Savon Wholesale florist- will let you know the final price/breakdown of what I got when I pay for them.
They have a wide selection, and if you call ahead, they can order you whatever they can get ahold of, take for instance Billy Buttons, or Craspedia, which you cant find anywhere in Tucson, I’ve looked around.
Made my own vintage inspired napkins (I can sew reasonably well, not too shabby), my own ruffled table runners (courtesy of a fellow Bee, but I used a different fabric, I was intimidated by burlap). I will be doing my own floral centerpieces (gulp) with a few close friends and family members.
Cake- Village Bakehouse- $250, will pick it up instead of paying for delivery fee.
They have amazingly moist, delicious cake! It will be a 3 tiered italian-buttercream-frosted with a cool modern looking grass design, and a gray satin ribbon/sugar flowers at the base of each tier. I special ordered 3 yellow and white designed fabric birds on Etsy for my cake topper.
