- Wedding: November 2012
Here are some of the photos from our recent reception. I know when I was searching Hollywood Glam the info was sparce!
The Glam Bride 🙂
The dress was magical! I found it at an outlet actually and it was discontinued in 2009 I believe. I paid like $500 for it. I did have it altered and I found one on-line after I purchased. The maker is Moonlight.
Shoes – These were no bargin however; kind of a win-win. I got married outside so they are thrashed and wil never be worn again (I have not tried to have them cleaned in fairness). They are from DSW shoes but considered a “Disney Princess” shoe and the model is “Cinderella.” The cool thing is they come with an envelope attached to the inside top of the shoe box that I did not see until my wedding day. It had a blurb about a princess, her prince charming, and happily ever after! Was a good little feeling sliding my shoes on for the biggest moment of my life. (Price $90 – though DSW often has on-line coupons or codes available. I saved $10).
Tiara was ordered from an amazing place on ebay and I think was less than $20.00. The quality was amazing.
Bling – This was a small splurge! I figured I will want these the rest of my life they should be nice!
Isle Flowers – To cut cost, we rented a white runner (was not down yet) and lined each side with petals vs. a complete petal isle.
Wine Ceremony! When the lids were removed, this looked exactly like wine decanters. This is actually a oil and vinegar set from Ross – $5.99. The glass was from TJ Maxx (Ralph Lauren) with a bling addition in the already engraved design. That was less than a $1.00 addition from Michael’s.
Place Cards Ticket Style:
More place card
Actual Place Cards – The picture frame was on sale at Michaels, the picture inside we printed at home, the vase was supplied by the florist. The cards below: We actually purchased from an office supply store, a package of “Raffle Tickets” it was an Avery prodcut. There is a website that you do a template at, and then print them out on your sheets you purhsed. For ours, we had the QD box in the bottom and if you scanned it with a smart phone, it launched our wedding website. Each “Ticket” had a movie theater number and a movie.
These were the table names or stands. The back of this poster had the theater number. These were all printed front with the movie poster and back with the theater number on photo paper at home and then laminated at FedEX.
These were coupled on the table with tons of candles both in regular votives and crackled tea light holders. They were very inexpensive purchased through IKEA. We paired with short and tall alternating table flower arrangements. I don’t like mirrors with centerpieces but, these were amazing!!!
A few extra details
Movie reels just a few classic style through out the room – purchased at Kirlkands for a very small about I think $20 or less a each.
The plaques in this photo were also purchased at Kirklands. They were $7.99 for a set of 3. They were had just a few pieces of bling on them.
The cake – This cake was less than $600 and tasted amazing. We were actually torn between a bakery that was twice the amount. We held a cake tasing and wine pairing evening at our house with the groomsmen and their wives. We divided up different versions of cake from each bakery on plain white plates. We named one series after the bride and one after the groom. Then we asked them to vote on th best. The cheaper cake won and we had so many compliments. There was no cake left at the end of the night.
